It’s Time for Men to Step Up in a Fight for Gender Equity

Jimmie Briggs, an essayist and intersectional justice advocate, urges men to confront their traditional notions of masculinity and promote personal safety, dignity, and empowerment for all. It’s not just a matter of being politically correct; it’s about understanding that equity, justice, inclusivity, and safety for women, girls, and nonbinary people ultimately benefit us all. We need to acknowledge that broken masculinity harms societies and work towards creating safe environments where everyone is treated with mutual respect. Men around the world are already taking steps towards a true gender reckoning, but we need more men to join the fight.
