Involving Men in Gender Equality Issues
Conjure up a picture in your mind of someone feeding a baby. Choosing birth Control method. Speaking at a rape-prevention rally. Working at a domestic violence shelter. Figuring out how to handle an unintended pregnancy. In the vignettes you imagined, were the people all women? Things like reproductive choices, preventing violence against women, and even parenting have traditionally been seen as women’s issues, but upon logical examination, we all know that men have a part to play in all of these things. Join us this Friday for a conversation on how men can take an active role in gender equality issues – and why they should.
