Allies are people who support a group who are commonly the subject of discrimination, 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):
