I come to Domestic Violence Awareness Month with a mix of reverence for victims and survivors, celebration of the progress we have made and resolve for the work that remains ahead. This October, like all those before, I want to be intentional about how we demonstrate our allyship.
Father’s Day is a perfect time for men to wake up, stand up and speak out on behalf of women’s reproductive health and rights.
On February 23, a new vision for classical music will resound in Los Angeles when the American Youth Symphony celebrates their 2018/19 season, which they’ve dubbed “The Year of the Woman.” AYS Music Director and legendary performer, conductor and instrumentalist Carlos Izcaray talked to Ms. about how he’ll continue steering its powerful vision for progress after the season ends.
I’m a feminist raising boys in Trump and Kavanaugh’s America—and I’m scared for my sons, too.
Ms. talked to educator, author and feminist advocate Dr. Jackson Katz about sexism in U.S. politics, what it will take to unpack the bigotry of our institutions and how we can best push back against the toxic masculinity of the Trump administration.
Kurtz spoke with Ms. about the women who inspire his work and his activism, paying it forward as a white, cis gay man and how he remains hopeful in the midst of political turmoil.

I invite you to stand against male violence—including the violence of your fellow Incels. I invite you, in the words of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, to “listen to women for a change.”
The answer to #MeToo is not for men to hide their heads in the sand. Retreating to the sidelines of these conversations is not going to get us anywhere. Men are the missing link to addressing these problems—and these are the strategies they can use to help women fight back.
We cannot rewrite history to ignore the fact that a culture of violence by men against women has existed for generations in the U.S. and in the world. But without gender-inclusive teamwork, the #MeToo movement will not reach effective solutions.
