Check out our 15 tips to get you started on your HeForShe journey!

Posted: 2016-03-04

 

Check out our 15 top tips to get you started on your HeForShe journey.  

 

1. Educate yourself about feminism, gender equality and what it entails.

2. Educate yourself about sexual consent and make sure there is clear, unambiguous communication of consent in all your sexual relationships.

3. Assess your beliefs and actions and take concrete action to change sexist opinions and stereotypes that you might hold.

4. Challenge men (and women) who make sexist comments and jokes, especially your friends

5. If you see a situation where a woman looks like she may be in distress while in the company of a man, stand nearby enough that you make yourself a physical presence, monitor the situation, and be in a position to call for help if needed.

6. Challenge people who make, say, or post sexist things on the Internet, especially on social media.

7. Speak out against gender discrimination and violence - and explain why it is offensive to you!

8. Teach your daughters and sons to do house chores and how to fix things.

9. Pay attention to the sex of experts and key figures presenting information to you in the media.

10. If you have children, be an equal parent. Divide childcare responsibilities so that you are doing a fair share of the work.

11. If you are in a hiring position in your company, don’t limit your talent pool. Companies should aim for a 50-50 gender split in all their teams – right up to the executive floor.

12. Encourage more female voices in policy and strategy development roles

13. Mentor both women and men because in most cases, mentorships don’t cross gender lines.

14. Introduce at least one close friend or relative to the HeForShe campaign and encourage him to participate in the campaign

15. Participate in HeForShe events in your community. Like this one that we’re hosting! 

 

Do any of these tips remind you of someone? Do they embody the spirit of gender equality in their everyday living? We’d love to be introduced! We are looking for passionate people in Singapore that promote gender equality at work, at home and in their community. Nominate them here!
