Pod 754 Chops 259: Sophie Gallagher on How Men Can Help

Violence against women is an issue that isn't going away any time soon. In the aftermath of the #MeToo movement, and a string of widely reported murders of women by men, some men are asking what they can do to be better allies. Sophie Gallagher, deputy features editor at the paper, has some ideas, which she puts forward in her book How Men Can Help: A Guide To Undoing Harm and Being A Better Ally.

In this week's Chops, she chats to Jen about the mammoth task of getting men to understand the scale of the problem women face, what she hopes to achieve with the book, and why #NotAllMen can get in the bin.

If you've been affected by any of the issues Sophie and Jen are talking about, you can find out more information about where to get support from Refuge, or Rape Crisis England and Wales.
