This year, in lieu of a face-to-face Guys Who Get It celebration, we are thrilled to introduce you to 13 men who have been fearless in their quest for Gender Partnership, from celebrities to political heroes. Hailing from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Europe, and Ethiopia, they range from movies stars and other performers to business titans, sports celebrities, royalty, and, yes, even politicians.

Their outspoken words and work are making a difference. Here’s what basketball star Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors wrote on the Global Citizens site: “I’m feeling more driven than ever — to help out women who are working toward progress… Let’s work to close the opportunity gap. Let’s work to close the pay gap. And let’s work together on this.

“I mean, ‘Women deserve equality’ — that’s not politics, right? That’s not something that people are actually disagreeing on, is it? It can’t be.”

Read about all of these great Guys Who Get It and the actions they are taking in this Global Citizens article: 13 Famous Men Who Boldly Stood Up for Women in 2018. I think you’ll be encouraged and enheartened!
