Let’s lift each other up without putting each other down. These days you might hear someone saying something offensive without thinking, or see someone you know writing something sexist on social media Sometimes our natural reaction is to get mad at that person, or just to say nothing at all. But there is another way: let’s call those people in. Take a breath, wait, and catch-up with that person later on or send them a private message. Some men are used to fighting, conflict, and arguing, and so it can be very disarming to show some compassion and that you care about what they think. So, ask them what they meant, and engage with them in an empathic conversation to bring them along on the journey. We are all learning, so let’s help each other out on the journey to reducing gendered violence.
