It’s important that we acknowledge that the growing movement of men in the United States — in a multicultural sense — and all around the world — in an international sense — the growing movement of men who are standing up and speaking out about men’s violence against women and going into parts of male culture that have historically been either apathetic about or openly hostile to women’s efforts to engage them. That movement of men is indebted to the leadership of women on a personal level, on a professional level, on a political level, on an intellectual level, on every level. Women built these movements, and these are movements that are affecting — in a positive way — everybody, not just women and girls, but also men and boys.

And oftentimes, men like myself get a lot of credit and public acclaim for doing the work that women have been doing for a long time.

From Jackson Katz’s talk, "There are no women’s issues" at TEDxFiDiWomen. Watch the whole talk here.
