Thanks to the men who support women

I scanned the faces of the crowds at the women’s marches and I saw plenty of men combining their voices with ours. And I just wanted to say thanks. We appreciate you. 🙂

At a 2006 Equality Now event, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” creator and “The Avengers” writer [Joss Whedon] took a creative and impactful approach to his speech. He discussed the frustrations of always being asked the question, “Why do you create strong female characters?” In the speech he gave numerous responses, including:

“Because, equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition.”

Having witnessed his father physically abuse his mother as a child, Patrick Stewart gave a riveting speech for Amnesty International UK in October 2009. Remembering the impact the abuse had on him as a boy, he spoke to the responsibility men have to end this violence: “Even if she had [done something to provoke my father to hit her], violence is a choice. And it’s a choice that a man makes. We can choose to stop it.”

More signs from the women’s march:

“You’re orange, you’re gross, you lost the popular vote!”

“I’m not usually a sign guy but geez.”

  1. I’m a feminist because of my friends, because of my sisters, because of my daughter. Most importantly, though, I’m a feminist because of this crazy idea that all people should be treated with dignity and respect.
