Winter forestTis the season for family, friends, and good cheer. Tis also the season of Capricorn—the sign of the patriarchy.

And so, I was both delighted and enlightened when I discovered the above TED Talk recording, put on by Michael Kimmel on Why Gender Equality is Good for EveryoneMen Included.

Take 15 minutes and have a listen, and together, let’s raise the collective consciousness.
