How can I publish a blogpost?
At the moment, it’s necessary to reach out to us via e-mail. We’re planning on implementing a way to let you publish your articles by yourself. Until then, please write an e-mail to Robert or Henrik and we’ll take care of your piece being published. Please include the following information when you e-mail us:
- English text (not much shorter than 750 and not much longer than 2,000 words)
- image (please make sure of the copyright)
- short information on your bio: who you are, where you live, what you do, how you are motivated to contribute to MFE etc.
- picture of you (copyright!)
Why just men?
There are so many great resources on feminism by women and so few by men. We have experienced that a lot of men are a bit “skittish” when it comes down to relating to these issues. For those men, we want to establish a platform where they find access to relevant information and a place for sharing their perspectives.
We’re aware of the fact that men who want to support feminism sometimes offend female feminists. Some even think that men should stay out of feminism at all. We can understand that and this is why #mansplaining is not what we had in mind when we created this platform.
Instead, we believe that the agenda behind feminism is a catalogue which all men should know, understand, think through and support. We think of us as learners – not as leaders in this debate.
What kind of content are we looking for?
Basically, we want to publish blogposts by men on the subjects of feminism, diversity, gender equality and alike. The more perspectives from different European countries, the better.
Who can contribute?
Everybody is invited, as long as he contributes along our netiquette and within our guidelines. The only prerequisite apart from that is a text in English which doesn’t violate any copyright.
How can women support MFE?
We’d be more than happy if all the women (and all genders) out there would spread the news: that there is a platform for men who want to support feminism and gender equality. Neither do we want to “mansplain”, nor are we looking to dominate the debate by any means. Instead, we would like to create a place for men to find access to these subjects. We are currently thinking about more ways for women to participate in our project and we’re happy to receive your ideas, too. In the meantime, please contact us if you’d like to be visible in our supporters section.
