When we ask men to reject sexism and the abuse of women, we are not taking something away from them. In fact, we are giving them something very valuable - a vision of manhood that does not depend on putting down others in order to lift itself up. When a man stands up for social justice, non-violence, and basic human rights - for women as much as for men- he is acting in the best traditions of our civilization. That makes him not only a better man, but a better human being.
