Men: Only You Can Stop Other Men Like Trump

This article touches on the harmful repercussions of sexism and is a wonderful follow up to R*pe Culture and Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue.

Shaun R. Harper, a University of Pennsylvania professor and executive director of the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education, writes the following:

“I have known Trumps far too long — they are my friends, my fraternity brothers and so many other men with whom I routinely interact. I understand now, more than ever before, that letting them talk this way about women makes me just as sexist. By excusing their words and actions, I share some responsibility for rape, marital infidelity and other awful things that men do. I want other men to recognize this, too — not only because they have mothers, wives, sisters, aunts or daughters – but because sexism hurts all women and men in our society.”
