This Video Explains Why Gender Equality Is Good For Everyone–Including Men

In this TED talk, Michael Kimmel, sociologist and author of Angry White Men, makes the case for supporting gender equality: Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but also because everyone benefits.

He points to countries and companies in which there’s more gender equality than average and, as a result, people are happier, men included.

It’s an illuminating talk, often funny. One of the best quotes from it: “Privilege is invisible to those who have it.”

The video’s only 16 minutes long, so give it a watch for some discussion-stirring fodder.
