This video was created by Ben Acheson. Follow Ben on Facebook and Twitter. Ben had some comments about why he created this video, and you can read them below.

"Ben takes on gender equality. Do you think gender equality movements need to do more to help men?

Are the gender roles and macho stereotypes that we are socialised into hurting us? What does it mean when people say ‘be a man’? Are we really groomed to believe that dominant behaviour towards women is part of being a man?

Ben argues that not enough men speak up and challenge the existing gender order, as if gender equality is a battle to be fought by women, for women. But what is gender equality really about? And how can gender equality movements help men?"
