Donald Woodman makes an excellent point that men are not involved enough in the fight to create end oppression and end sexism against women’s issues. Women are constantly pictured as being involved in issues such as the Vietnam War, and the Civil Rights Movement. However these are considered universal issues that effect all sexes. Issues such as voting, abortion, and ending sexual violence, are nearly all women fighting for change. Men are not as commonly interested in changing the injustices that aren’t effecting them. Yet, they accept women’s help when they need it for their fights. They do not reciprocate this support system. How is this fair? Men should be more concerned with fighting to end these injustices, and supporting their mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters. Instead of looking at these injustices as just a “women’s problem,” they need to also be considered universal issues, supported just as equally as other movements.
