Last Friday, I was honored to return to PBS’ To The Contrary, the network’s iconic weekly feminist news analysis by and for women. This time, we tackled a host of issues from the 200 girls abducted in Nigeria to campus assault here in the US to feminist men. My main emphasis in all of the issues we tackled was to shift thew blame away from women and stipulate more on how men can help.
The issue of feminist men was one I feel quite strongly about, and need to talk about more mainly because I firmly believe that men are our greatest allies. I do think that because of the women’s movement’s focus on the history of our oppression, we unintentionally end up dismissing one of our most important partners- men.
The episode covered a lot of issues, even childhood obesity. Watch the special webisode here, and the full show below. Enjoy!
