What Men Get Right (and Wrong) About Sexual Harassment

(PODCAST) LeRon Barton is leading the charge as millennial men address gender inequality and sexual harassment.

Too often, millennials are accused of not going deep, that somehow just posting something publicly about an issue means you've done something to help solve it. But, as with most issues, it takes more than a tweet to fix culture.

It takes actual work, every day, from men to stop sexual misconduct. It takes examining one's own treatment of women and speaking up to one's friends when they say or do something disrespectful. That’s why I started the #NowWhat campaign and encourage you to do your part to end sexual harassment in the workplace.

Today's podcast guest is LeRon Barton, a writer from Kansas City who currently resides in San Francisco. LeRon’s essays have appeared in Salon, The Good Men Project, Eastbay Express, Those People, AlterNet, Buzzfeed, Gorilla Convict, and Elephant Journal. His site is leronbarton.com.
