I want to see more men sharing news & stories about the attack on (what we have traditionally called) women’s rights we are seeing now.
There is a proposed FEDERAL abortion ban, attacks on birth control and a call to weaken Title IX protections against sexual assault on college campuses. A woman was just convicted of a FELONY for a coat hanger abortion.
And the only people I see sharing these stories are women and my non binary sibling. I don’t even see men commenting on them.
It is discouraging. It looks and feels like men don’t care if abortion is made illegal or other violence is perpetuated against us.
Subscribe to NARAL and Planned Parenthood’s feed. Read Rewire. Find a way to keep track of repro rights and other gendered issues.
You have a responsibility to defend and support the rights of women & people with uteruses in this time of overwhelming misogyny.
Men don’t have to talk over women, but some shared posts and a “that’s awful” or two would show your solidarity.
It’s a pretty low bar, so I know you can make it over.
