7 Ways Men Can Address Sexual Harassment Issues

Published

on

As a man, you might think that you have a minimal role in the harassment issues we have been reading about these past days. But that’s not true, your role as a man goes beyond defending young women and standing by their rights.

Here are some ways you can show support to women:

Just Listen

To show your support to women who have been sexually or physically assaulted, you need to listen to whatever they want to share about their experiences. Assure them that you care about their well-being and understand where they come from.

Sometimes, women don’t even expect you to try and jump in immediately to ‘fix’ the problem, sometimes they just want to know that you’re standing by their sides and supporting them in every way.

Ask Yourself the Following

Did I ever unintentionally hurt the feelings of a woman?

Did I ever invade a woman’s privacy in any way?

Did I ever standby as any of my friends harassed a girl?

This is called self reflection, as it’s equally important to stop and reflect on your own behavior!

End the Cycle of Silence

You need to end the cycle of silence, if a friend of yours is harassing a girl, you need to take action and stop him. Despite how close the two of you can be, there’s no excuse for him to behave in any disrespectful manner.

Stand up For Girls

Defend girls! Both in reality and online. It’s always better to hear it from a guy’s perspective, to see men agreeing with women’s rights and showing their support to the cause.

Put Aside Assumptions

Also, don’t question women. If a girl or a woman confide in you, it means they care deeply about you so never question their story.

Don’t Judge

Be empathetic not judgmental. Show and express your empathy, Girls who have been harassed go through a lot, they have experienced something that society think has damaged their reputation and livelihood, so don’t make it worse.

Be an Advocate For Equality

In Egypt, we’re not used to having men who show their advocacy to gender equality, so it would be great that for a change we can see men turning into true advocates for equality.

So don’t be scared to speak up as well, to tackle issues at your workspace, to help create a safer haven for your female colleagues.

You can model the type of workplace dynamics and behavior that promote equity and respect.

Remember, you can be the beginning of a huge change!
