A new magazine in India shares stories of men and boys and allows them to talk to other men and boys about topics that are normally shunned. Although the magazine is targeted at men and masculinity, over 33% of the buyers are women. This indicates the need in Indian society for opening a dialogue and a hope for introspection on gender issues.

Feminist language reform, also known as feminist language planning, refers to the effort, often of political and grassroots movements, to change how language is used to gender people, activities and ideas on an individual and societal level. This initiative has been adopted in countries such as Sweden, Switzerland and Australia, and has been tentatively linked to higher gender equality.
Feminism is very much beyond the understanding of angry woman hating men; it’s about empowering women and non-binary people to be at par with the social position of men. It deals with issues of social justice which are rooted in inequality.
