Men speaking out

With the exciting launch of the weekly series of blog posts by male allies yesterday, I thought I’d continue to show how good men can – and are – stepping up to address this issue. Here are two important, recent videos of men speaking out against street harassment and gender violence.

The first is Tony Porter, co-founder of A Call to Men, speaking at TED. The link takes you to a CNN page with text as well as the video.

 

The second is SpokenSoul215, performing a spoken word piece about street harassment at The Harvest in Dec. (Sorry, I haven’t seen a transcript for this yet).
