Men Are Joining The Women's Rights Movement With Powerful Messages (Photos)

With the #YesAllWomen hashtag continuing to gain popularity and educate people about the daily discrimination and fears women face, a new movement has sprung up alongside it, showing its support for the brave individuals who have been posting their stories to Twitter.

Some men working on behalf of emboldening women have been using the hashtag #AllMenCan to highlight ways men can change their own behaviors to make the world a place where women don't fear a dark walk to their cars, or have to guard their drink at a party.

While titles like "alpha males" and "real men" are often perverted — by people like shooter Elliot Rodger — to signify entitlement over women's bodies, or applaud the use of aggression or physical force, many men have taken to Twitter to reclaim these terms for the better.

By holding signs that read things like, "Because 'real men' treat women with respect," and "My masculinity doesn't include misogyny," these men are standing with women to refute a social standard that posits men as somehow superior to their female counterparts.

These images are powerful reminders that we're all in this together; the situation of women can't be improved if men remain in complacent ignorance. But by getting both genders on the same side, we can make equality an actual realization.
