Let’s Hear it for the Boys
The Ladies of the iLab love our girls. We like to see them go out and kick life’s butt when it’s not treating them right. This week, we want to give a special shout out to our guys. We were inspired so see men and women come together for the fight against female objectification and discrimination with the #YesAllWomen and #AllMenCan campaigns.
In wake of the tragic shootings in Isla Vista, California last week, #YesAllWomen became a rallying cheer for all women across the world. As the misogynists of the internet came out to downplay Elliot Rodger’s disturbing crimes and his deranged worldview, women across the world stood tall in unity and turned to Twitter to share their experiences of harassment, fear and sexual assault via the #YesAllWomen hashtag. Now, Elizabeth Plank from PolicyMic offers #AllMenCan as space for men who are also tired of misogyny to show that the #notallmen contingent doesn’t speak for them.
