Nicole Silverberg is a TV writer and provided The Guardian with this list of ways men can treat women better:

  • Talk to your friend who is “kind of a creep” at work.
  • Don’t talk over women.
  • If you are asked to be on a panel/team and see that it’s all men, say something. Maybe even refuse the spot!
  • When you see another guy talk over a woman, say: “Hey, she was saying something.”
  • Don’t call women “crazy” in a professional setting.
  • Don’t touch women you don’t know, and honestly, ask yourself why you feel the need to touch women in general.
  • Involve women in your creative projects, then let them have equal part in them.
  • Don’t make misogynistic jokes.
  • Don’t expect women to be “nice” or “cute” and don’t get upset when they aren’t those things.
  • Don’t make assumptions about a woman’s intelligence, capabilities or desires based on how she dresses.
  • Pay women as much as you pay men.
  • Don’t get defensive when you get called out.
  • Don’t need to literally witness a man being horrible in order to believe that he’s horrible. Trust and believe women.
  • Don’t use your power to get women’s attention/company/sex/etc.
  • Be aware of your inherent power in situations and use it to protect women, especially via talking to other men.
  • Stop thinking that because you’re also marginalized or a survivor that you cannot inflict pain or oppress women.
  • Don’t read a list like this and think that most of these don’t apply to you.
