Why Women Need a Men’s Movement

Why Women Need a Men’s Movement

As we see a huge amount of energy aimed at women and having them move, shift and rise out of the house into powerful positions in a thriving & competitive work space, we see what I am calling the rise of women, once again. This has happened before and it is happening again, on a greater level, transformative and unique.

As we watch women-pro movements unfold, there is one side of the spectrum we have not talked about or even pursued.

My thought is this: if we are going to attempt to make a difference – if we are going to bring to light issues around women at home, in the work place, as a parent, financial responsibilities, we need to talk to the other group of humans who tread the same earth and meander their way through life’s great highs and lows – there are two sides to every coin – I am talking about MEN

As we mentor women, inspire and support them in their new and ever changing work space – we need to do the same for men.

As we educate women, encourage their confidence, enlighten them to greater powerful positions & encourage new phenomenas such as ‘lean in’ – we need to do the same for men.

It takes one to know one-we need to mentor women and men.

We need to enlighten and educate men as we do women on the possibilities of women taking senior roles and of more men being ”stay at home” or on ‘flexi’ timing.

The more we discuss and join these two groups together, rather than single-ing them out, the greater speed we shall make in our movement forward.

As we work within the realm of ‘girl power’, how about men?

We need a men’s movement. Rather than encouraging the eye rolling we can start to have men understand us. Through this they will start to see what is happening to us WILL and IS happening to them, just in a different capacity.

We debate post baby bodies and south facing boobs, and it is considered adequate dinner conversation.

How about man boobs and the possibility of erectile dysfunction?

Let’s take these conversations off the dinner menu and onto the kitchen table.

We all, all mankind, have hangups – men and women alike -to be presumptuous lets go with age old classics- women: homemakers / men:money makers

However, a huge shift is occurring and has occurred and in support of the shift, we need enlightenment around the power of the female species and the growth of a mans understanding around home / work / life – we need to support men and educate them as much as we do women, if not more. In my very personal opinion, it’s got to this stage, because a mans narrow vision of a woman has been allowed to fester through the years with no direct update and extra input of information.

We need to start with men first and then women!

  1. whoah this blog is great i really like reading your posts. Keep up the great work! You already know, lots of individuals are looking round for this information, you can aid them greatly.

  2. I have seen many useful items on your web-site about computer systems. However, I have got the judgment that lap tops are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a option if you frequently do jobs that require loads of power, like video touch-ups. But for net surfing, statement processing, and a lot other popular computer work they are okay, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Appreciate sharing your opinions.

  3. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Thanks for your post here. One thing I would really like to say is always that most professional fields consider the Bachelor’s Degree like thejust like the entry level standard for an online degree. Though Associate College diplomas are a great way to begin with, completing your Bachelors uncovers many entrance doors to various careers, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Course Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online versions of their qualifications but commonly for a significantly higher payment than the institutions that specialize in online qualification programs.
