Another household name, Malala Yousafzai began her fight for female education around the globe. Her bravery reached new levels when she faced a horrible attack for her activism, but continued to advocate for the cause.

Homelessness was something that concerned 11-year-old Khloe Thompson when she decided to found Khloe Kares, a foundation that provides care packages to shelters and homeless individuals around the nation. The foundation has dispersed 1000s of care packages to date.

Women Need Allies Like You

Allies for women, it’s your time. Although Women’s History Month is ending, women’s rights are always important. After all, women need allies year-round.

What does it mean to be an ally?

An ally supports and defends someone who is less privileged than themself. There are many ways to support someone else, and at times it may be a little uncomfortable to speak up for someone. But thats just what the world needs. 

We need men to be allies for women

Most men listen to other men more than they listen to women. When a woman speaks up about the inequalities she faces, it is less likely for her claims to be taken seriously unless she has men as allies supporting her issues. This is why it is so important that men who are willing to be allies amplify the voices of women and their experiences.

Listen Actively

You must hear what someone is saying before you can amplify their issues. As an ally one of the best things to do is listen. Actively listen to what the women in your life say their experiences are and take their words seriously. 

Accept Differences In Experiences

Pay attention to the conversations of women you are close with, but also understand that not all experiences will be the same. You can also expand your viewpoints by doing independent reading and research. When you have a better understanding of gender issues, you can be a better.

We really aren’t that differenta group of peoples hands coming together

While there have been endless books written on the differences between men and women, there is actually a lot more in common than we like to acknowledge. Everyone wants respect, fair treatment, and to be heard. By making the decision to be an ally to women, you are helping the world become more equitable and safer for all.
