Men have a responsibility in ending gender equality and this is a great way for them to raise their voices and make an impact to the world by influencing other men to speak up too.

We need to rethink the idea of what is male or female and face humanity as a whole. We shouldn't live with these limitations as they are the epicenter of the creation of stereotypes that damage both men and women.
