Who are men?

Sometimes in our own personal struggles to succeed as a women we forget to take a moment to think about men.  My personal feminist creed does not paint men as evil, and in fact many men I know share feminist beliefs closer to my own than some of my best female friends.

So I wanted to use today’s post to tell you about an initiative that has been running in Australia this week; Man Week.

Each night this week, Triple J, a radio station out here, has discussed a male related topic and then opened discussion online.  It has also prompted blogs from male bloggers across the country, discussing some element of their life or experiences as a man.

I have read a few of these and have been blown away by how sensitive and insightful they are.  Reading them also demonstrates how little men usually express themselves intimately, and it seems that this is as much to do with societal acceptance as their inclination. I would encourage anyone reading this who is interested in gender equality – rather than gender stereotyping – to have a read through some of these posts.
