what saying “not all men” actually does:

  • refuses to acknowledge that gender violence happens too often
  • takes the focus off the men who are violent and/or misogynistic
  • refuses to acknowledge that even good guys can enable the problem
  • makes the conversation about men and semantics instead of the epidemic levels of violence against women

what saying “not all men” does not do:

  • reveal a fascinating new insight that we didn’t know
