What incentive do men have for promoting feminism?
tynamiteMen have daughters, sisters and mothers. People have empathy for each other. We're a familial group animal. There are fundamental human traits or needs, bonds, that drive us to modify what we've been taught in order to do what we believe is in the best interest of people we most care about. If we extend this to society in general through caring that's great, but it's the immediate, direct, primary bonds that typically drive an individual to make change for the better. Seeing your daughter, sister, mother in a bad marriage or divorced and unable to support herself because society doesn't allow it, she's not properly educated, hurts. You also want to be around people who are like yourself or with whom you can converse easily. If you're well educated, you may well prefer to have educated daughters. People also like to be thought well of. If your daughter excels, in some ways, that is a positive reflection back on the family and yourself.
