October 7, 2015, New York City
The Women & Men as Allies Initiative, a partnership between Feminist.com and Michael Kimmel and The Center for for the Study of Men & Masculinities, grew out of our Men & Women as Allies FemSalon in 2014. Women & Men as Allies
will be a co-branded
and series of events
that explores what it means for
men and women to collaborate in pursuit of gender equality,
positively redefine masculinity
and to work towards
creating cultures free of violence. Women & Men as Allies is
based on the belief that men must engage with feminism in
order to achieve true equality, and feminist work must seek
to include and encourage the participation of men.
Our 2nd event in this series – Women & Men as Allies: At Work and At Home – was a conversation about how women and men can be allies in the efforts to balance work and family. The event featured a panel discussion with Jessica Bennett, Simon Isaacs, Alicia Jay and Josh Levs moderated by Marianne Schnall and Michael Kimmel – and was supported by the Woodcock Foundation.

The Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities The Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities was founded in 2013 at Stony Brook University – the first such center on the world dedicated to exploring men's lives and engaging men and boys for gender equality. Our mission is to foster a dialogue between researchers and activists working to engage men, and to inspire researchers to provide activists with work they need to be more effective. The Center runs seminars and develops activist-based research projects.
The Woodcock Foundation is a progressive family foundation established to link family creativity and resources with community development needs. Trustees select areas of interest, identify individuals within those areas who possess strong leadership skills, and then invest in them with both financial as well as technical resources. Since 1996, Woodcock has awarded over $30 million (at present around $2.5 million per year) to over 50 organizations, primarily in the areas of social enterprise and economic development, food systems, large landscape conservation, education, media & democracy, gender equality, and civil society.
And as always – thanks to all who joined us at the event! It was an inspiring evening and we were so happy to share it with our friends, colleagues and supporters.
