Misogyny is ever present. Regardless of your gender, I believe that everyone has experienced it at some point – either as an observer or a participant.
However, there’s a big difference between being just an observer, and being a participant – the first one is a choice!
There are many wrongdoings happening right in front of our eyes, but it’s up to us to choose to either look to the problem in the eye or stay away.
To continue the spirit of International Women’s Day and celebrate the brave women and men who have decided to stand up against misogyny, we’ll present you with 10 stories of times when men decided to stand up and call out other men for their misogyny against women.
It all started when Reddit user alwaysamensch decided to ask women to share if they have ever seen a man they weren’t dating or related to step in and correct misogyny in action. Women responded – and they did big time! Check out some of the stories for yourself below, and feel free to share your own similar story (if you have one) in the comments.
