For far too long, conversations about gender have been one-sided—primarily reflecting the perspectives of women. To be full partners with women in achieving gender equality, men need a space to consider what gender means in their own lives and the role they can play as advocates for change at work and beyond. This is what the MARC Blog is all about. What does it mean to be a man at work and in society? Does male privilege hurt men? What can men to do to change the workplace so that men and women have equal opportunities for advancement? MARC Bloggers will be taking on these key issues.

Who are the MARC bloggers? They include Amitabh KumarBill ProudmanGraeme RussellLars Einar EngströmMartin DavidsonMichael KimmelMichael Welp, and Noah Prince, with occasional contributions by Frank McCloskey and an array of guest writers.

For me it is the example I set for my children... okay while they are still my "children," they are no longer children at 21 and 24... but I'd like to think that the example I set as they grew up, and the example I still set are posi...
Your article is good but only for the present times. Also women have to be willing to share the housework and to not complain if not done to their standards.
I would like to add to your thoughts by suggesting that the future work also needs to be addressed. I do not hear much in the media about these issues so I made a list of some of the major ones:
