"Feminism expects a man to be ethical, emotionally present, and accountable to his values in his actions with women — as well as with other men. Feminism loves men enough to expect them to act more honorably and actually believes them capable of doing so."
— Michael S. Kimmel

"When we ask men to reject sexism and the abuse of women, we are not taking something away from them. In fact, we are giving them something very valuable - a vision of manhood that does not depend on putting down others in order to lift itself up. When a man stands up for social justice, non-violence, and basic human rights - for women as much as for men- he is acting in the best traditions of our civilization. That makes him not only a better man, but a better human being."
