Gender equality is a topic for men 6/6

We have to create a stronger academic environment to address gender equality issues and provide good networking opportunities for people to meet and share ideas and experiences. 

These are challenges that women and men must resolve together. Gender equality is not an issue that women can or should tackle alone. We need people with passion to pursue a more gender-equal world. We also need to keep making the argument for gender equality. It takes time for those arguments to reach people, and to win over hearts and minds. The message also needs to be straightforward: we need to be able to define the concept of gender equality in such a way that ‘ordinary’ members of the public can understand why it is important. 

Gender equality is very simple: it is about taking away unfair obstacles so that everyone has the same opportunities. Who can be against that?
