We talk about the need to include more female voices in government all the time. Obviously, we think it’s important. That’s the point of GovFem, after all.
What we don’t talk about as often is what role men have in the dialogue of women’s advancement.
Granted, there are a few campaigns out there that recognize the need for both genders to collaborate on women’s issues. HeForShe is a great example of one campaign that recently gained a lot of attention from the media and international organizations. Nevertheless, invitations for men to get involved are few and far between.
