Dear Mirah,

During the span of my 60+ years, I have followed the evolution of “respect for females.” I accept this development is indeed a movement. I would add to your definition of male allies to the movement to include action in practice.When I encounter prejudice in any of its various forms, I will attempt to counter with intelligent dialog. However, my actions and demeanor tend to discourage bias from my associates. Actions and behaviors influence attitudes much more effectively than mere words.
