All across the world, males are advocating for gender equality in powerful and unique ways. Here are five extraordinary examples:
-Mali singer Bafing Kul, who writes anti-female genital mutilation messages into his lyrics.
-Plastic surgeon Dr. Mohammad Jawad, who repairs facial injuries of Pakistani women survivors of acid attacks.
-Ziauddin Yousafzai, who travels the world with his daughter, Malala, to advocate for female education.
-Arunachalam Muruganantham, who prevented women living in rural India from having to endure social restrictions during menstruation by inventing a machine that makes low-cost sanitary pads.
-Reverend Timothy Njoya, a Kenyan cleric who founded Men for the Equality of Men and Women to challenge men’s perceptions of what it means to be a man in his country.
