The call for male allies in the push for gender equality and to eradicate violence against women is nothing new, but it has been amplified over the past year with multiple campaigns, national and international, asking men to speak up for women's rights.

One of the more well-known efforts is UN Women's HeForShe campaign, which asks men to take a stand for women's rights and was launched last year by the actress Emma Watson. 

On the occasion of International Women's Day, March 8, 2015, I decided to discuss gender equality with MEN

On March 8, 2015, as thousands of people gathered in New York City to mark International Women's Day, I surveyed a few men to see what they are doing for gender equality.

In this video, I asked a few men what were the biggest issues faced by women in their home countries.
