To the men that think they can’t attend an event with “women” in the title…
Here’s a personal message from Colin Ryan. He currently serves on the Vermont Commission on Women.
“It’s a problem of language. When you put “Women” in the title, as men we assume that it’s not about us, it doesn’t affect us, and it’s probably not even for us. But when you do go, it becomes clear right away that equality is not a women’s issue, it’s an economic issue. And we have a far bigger role to play than remaining silent for fear of saying the wrong thing.”
