@ZAmmi: because “I have a boyfriend” is more likely to get a guy to back off than “no”, because they respect other men more than women

@AdelaideKane: Not ALL men harass women. But ALL women have, at some point, been harassed by men. Food for thought.

@wheresaddie: Because men don’t text eachother that they got home safe.

@feliciaday: When a woman makes a video, most comments are about tearing apart her looks. Or if they’d “do” her. With a man, almost none.

@Firstladyofatl: “Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women.” -Maya Angelou

@rubinafillion: “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” -Maya Angelou

@bluntystyles: If more men said “don’t be that guy” to each other instead of “not all men” to women… what a wonderful world this could be.

@mckennaplewis: “When a man says no in this culture, it’s the end of the discussion. When a woman says no, it’s the beginning of a negotiation”

 @schemaly: because our bodies and reproduction are regulated like public property

@ayeshamattu: Time to address cultural constructs of violent masculinity + male entitlement. Misogyny kills.  (Upworthy video link.)
