What incentive do men have for promoting feminism?
tynamite's avatar None (other than kindness).

What incentive was there for white people to stop black people from being slaves?
What incentive was there for men to give women the right to vote or go to work?
What incentive was there for the Taliban males to allow girls to go to school?

You get the idea.

tynamite's avatar Men 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.

tynamite's avatar Women can excel without feminism, and feminism is nowadays irrelevant as 71% of American women don't identify with feminism.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
