Here’s a Facebook page that’s worth liking: The Kurd Men for Equality campaign. Kurdish men in Iran started the campaign in response to what they believed to be misogyny in a local court case. 

A man who was convicted of domestic abuse was forced to parade the streets in a dress and hijab, the traditional women’s clothing, as public humiliation. To express their disapproval of the judge’s degradation of women, local men began posting photos of themselves in women’s clothing, with the message “Being a woman is not a tool to humiliate or punish anyone.”
