    Yes yes yes – I absolutely agree. As admirable as Ehsan’s work is, I’m a little tired of stories about the male Knight in Shiny Armour.

    I don’t feel quite as strongly about it, but that may be a sign of my own prejudice. I think we need to have as many of these Knight in Shining Armour stories as possible to sort of bribe men into taking a stand for women’s rights…sort of role models for them, examples they can strive for. Of course, all of that sounds a bit like I’m thinking of men like children, but I swear I don’t mean it in a condescending way. I swear! I do, however, think we need more stories about the amazing women who are out there every day fighting for equality.

      I see what you mean, Trisha. It’s not that I don’t want to hear stories about the men who try to make a difference, as they ARE important in all the ways you mentioned. It’s more that I’d like some more balance.

      (I hope you don’t mind that I’m chatting in your comments section, Carina :P)
