We know that the battle for equality cannot be won without men challenging the world around them, forging a better future for women, and, in the words of International Women’s Day, pressing for progress. By sharing with our community of men the stories of six different women we hope to open men’s eyes to the challenges women face and in doing so, encourage them to play their part. Their stories and words are compelling, and it is our hope that their advice will inspire everybody to elevate women and be stronger allies in the fight for equality. You can find their words below, and our CEO's own thoughts on male privilege and the path forward here
