Equimundo Joins Activists and Hollywood Leaders for #AskMoreOfHim Campaign, Challenging Men to Take Action for Equality

Share this

In March, Equimundo joined The Representation Project, a group of activists, and Hollywood leaders in launching the #AskMoreOfHim campaign, encouraging men to speak out against a culture of sexism, abuse, and inequality.

With the goal of challenging more men to join women in using their privilege and platforms for gender justice, a group of 15 activists and 15 entertainment industry leaders introduced the campaign in advance of the Oscars. The group wrote an open letter in The Hollywood Reporter, and a corresponding op-ed by campaign organizers Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Jackson Katz that further described the need for men to step up in the wake of the #MeToo movement, calling out toxic masculinity and taking concrete steps toward equality.

In conjunction, the Representation Project posted a collection of resources men everywhere can use to learn more and become better allies in the movement against sexual harassment, abuse, and assault. The list includes Equimundo’s Man Box report, a groundbreaking three-country study on young men’s attitudes, behaviors, and understandings of what it means to be a man.
