We have discussed the reasons we don’t trust or believe women: Eve and the original sin, the female malady of hysteria in the Victorian Era and how these caricatures are still lurking in our society.
We have discussed why we don’t believe women when it comes to medical care: dismissing women’s pain and symptoms, Yentyl Syndrome (women’s symptoms have to present like men’s symptoms to be recognized, as in cardiac arrest) and how the medical establishment has contributed to this by not studying disease in women and not testing drugs effects on women. When research is done through the lens of male disease, it follows that treatment would too.
We have talked about why we don’t believe women who have been raped or experienced sexual harassment or domestic violence. Or if we do believe them, we don’t think it’s “as bad” as they say. (hysterical women?) Consider this: multiple women accused Bill Cosby of rape, but it wasn’t until a male comedian had a Cosby rape joke go viral that the media (and most of us) took it seriously and started paying attention. Rape myths abound and are being adopted by the Trump administration as we speak. Why? How can we start to address this and fight it?

“Here’s the thing about The Good Men Project. We are trying to create big, sweeping, societal changes—–overturn stereotypes, eliminate racism, sexism, homophobia, be a positive force for good for things like education reform and the environment. And we’re also giving individuals the tools they need to make individual change—-with their own relationships, with the way they parent, with their ability to be more conscious, more mindful, and more insightful. For some people, that could get overwhelming. But for those of us here at The Good Men Project, it is not overwhelming. It is simply something we do—–every day. We do it with teamwork, with compassion, with an understanding of systems and how they work, and with shared insights from a diversity of viewpoints.” —– Lisa Hickey, Publisher of The Good Men Project and CEO of Good Men Media Inc.
