It boggles our lil minds that in 2017, we are STILL talking about gender equality. Not only are we still NEEDING to talk about it, but the chatting needs to be followed by a bucket load of change…and then more, and more and, like, shitloads more change.
Men and woman having equal opportunities is a no brainer. Let’s just get this shit happening PRONTO!
For true equality to be achieved it is EVERYONE’S responsibility. No matter what body part resides in your strides, gender equality is all of our issue. It’s not just a women’s issue, it’s a human one.
A couple of years ago, the fabulous Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In, started the campaign #LeanInTogether, encouraging men to stand up and say why they believe in gender equality. Men are a crucial piece to the gender equality puzzle and they need to be on board for it to be achieved.
We called on men we admire from the Australian media to say why they support and believe in gender equality. Having men be loud and proud is helping to move gender equality in the right direction.
We thank them for making this stand publicly. We hope every single man in Australia, and the whole world, follows their lead.
