He wrote: “And while we as men listen to truth in this period... let us remember it is not only about the change towards violence... it’s about ensuring that there is equity in your work places and schools.. it's about dismantling patriarchy by supporting women into positions of leadership..”
Tweeting further, MI said that it is about speaking the truth to men around us when they transgress and tearing down a system where men can perpetrate evil and get away with it.
