Thank you, Brittany, for a well-written, thoughtful piece with detailed suggestions.

Thank you for your comment. Your sentiment of “I didn’t think I could say something because I’m a male” is a common theme in the private messages I’ve received after my post. I think that is another problem too, that the expectation is that only women can speak up on these issues because they are often the most impacted.

I would encourage you to continue to share your beliefs, even at the risk of being “the male saying it” because I think there may be men and women who agree with you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
