Have a story to tell?
For things to shift, both sexes need to be willing to see the advantage in moving beyond the negative stereotypes. Doing so could be as simple as telling a few good stories. Itâs a small act, but one with extreme personal power.
Not stories about men who are always good, but stories about men in which a moral choice had to be made, and the real-life choice was the right one. In the best of all worlds, each story would have an element of kick-ass action. After all, weâre not going to be weaned from the hard stuff by tales of a thwarted purse snatching when weâre regularly exposed to a violent lineup.

âI donât think most women like this any better than men. They want to suspend judgment, but the stereotypes are strong and perpetuated. You just donât know what to do about it.â
