Michael Kaufman traces the contemporary movement for gender equality back to the Women’s Suffrage efforts in the late 19th century, but only since the the 1980s have men started to join the cause in large numbers. His international white ribbon campaign has been raising awareness about violence against women since 1991, and his latest book, “The Time Has Come: Why Men Must Join the Gender Equality Revolution,” is bringing the message to a new generation. In this Hack the Process interview, Michael tells us why this issue motivated him to make it the focus of his career, how he invested his own straight white male privilege to promote the cause, and what every man needs to understand about feminism and gender equality.
