Stand with us

Men who stand by and do nothing are just as dangerous as men who abuse their power.

I was speaking to a co-worker about this and she told me her husband doesn’t get it. He still posts jokes that are demeaning to women and doesn’t understand why it matters if women make less than men. I personally wouldn’t be able to accept that from a partner. If someone claims they love you, but doesn’t care about putting you down and doesn’t mind when your rights are taken away because of your gender, then how can we truly claim to love you.

With experience, self-respect and education, I’m much clearer about what I look for in a healthy relationship, and what I will and will not accept.
