“I’m Don McPherson. I am a feminist. That means I care about women and women’s rights. It’s not that complicated. Violence against women will not end until men take a proactive role. Calling it a ‘women’s’ issue allows men to ignore it. The reality is, it’s our issue. I promise to work to show how sexism and violence hurt all of us — and to inspire men to step up and make change.”
