Wonderful piece by Matthew Sherrington. “Men in Fundraising: We have a problem and its you.” From 101Fundraising crowd blog.
Matthew talks about:
- Sexism in the NGO sector…alive and flourishing.
- Imposter syndrome…and links to other articles and then Amanda “F…ing” Palmer’s 2011 speech at the IFC. I was there. She was great.
- Tall poppy syndrome…just got off those heads.
And fighting this crap…Men who are not feminists. Women who are anti-feminist.
Remember: EQUITY is different than equality. EQUITY is the best.
P.S. Do you subscribe to 101Fundraising? I suggest that you do so. Especially if you live in the U.S. We U.S.ers need to read beyond the U.S.
