In the wake of the #MeToo tag, men are coming forward and pledging to be the change needed in society. They created the #HowIWillChange tag in response.
Men across the globe heard just how women are affected by sexual harassment and assault on a daily basis. Seeing women stand up in unison and saying #MeToo was a huge wake-up call. In response, they have decided to make changes in their daily lives that will hopefully be the beginning of the end for #MeToo.
We have the motto here at Good Things Guy that if you change just one thing, you can change everything and this new movement is exactly that! #HowIWillChange is a tag being used by men who are planning on taking proactive steps in their own lives to stop harassment and assault.
The #HowIWillChange hashtag was created by writer Benjamin Law, who tweeted and urged men to pledge to take action in the wake of #MeToo.
Guys, it's our turn.

Men started to tweet about the changes they could make. We loved reading the different ways they want to work towards the change. These are some of our favourites.
Women. You are not alone. I will fight this with you. I will raise my sons the right way. We hear you. It's time for change! #HowIWillChange

#HowIWillChange By calling out the actions or statements by friends/colleagues that perpetuate the idea that victims must bear proof.

#HowIWillChange I will not let my voice drown out women, be it in conversation or in career.
