Check it out: Gender Inequality is a Man’s Problem (crosspost)

Joan Chittister of the National Catholic Review offers an interesting perspective on violence against women and why it’s not just a “woman’s problem:”

The situation is unstated everywhere but in the headlines: Women and girls are still a commodity to be had, controlled, used and discarded.

First, they called it “a woman’s problem.” Then we got civilized enough to realize it wasn’t a woman’s problem; it was a human problem. But we will never really resolve the situation until we begin to admit aloud that it is really a man’s problem.

It is only when men stand up as a class and confront other men on the subject that women can begin to hope for violence-free lives.

We recommend you read the whole post here.
