Allies are people who support a group who are commonly the subject of discrimation, prejudice, etc, but who are not members of that group. Specifically, feminist allies are individuals who are not women who support women's rights and promote feminism.

On being a good ally Edit

First of all, you might like to read up on Privilege. Then, read and learn the steps outlined in shrub.com's great article, "Check my what?" On privilege and what we can do about it.

The simple list of what you need to do (based loosely on the article linked above):

  • Accept and understand your privilege
  • Learn to listen
  • Don't make it about you
  • Adopt a language of respect and equality
  • CALL OTHER MEN ON THEIR CRAP

Check Resources for men for feminist writing aimed at allies.

Examples of ally behaviour Edit

It's not hard to be an ally. Even a blog post helps. Here are some examples:
