'Not All Men Oppress Women Or Are Rapists': #BlameOneNotAll Campaign Sticks Up For The Good Guys, But Not Everyone Is Impressed

Feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights - it has absolutely nothing to do with man-hating.

Media company Mintified’s new campaign #BlameOneNotAll aims to make this point clear to anyone who is still confused by the definition of feminism.

"We do agree that a woman has to go through a lot. The leering, the catcalls, the groping, the societal othering, the miasma of all this that women bear the brunt of every damn day. Every single day is a war to them," their Facebook page states.

"But - generalising the other gender, is not right. Not all men are rapists. Not all men abuse their significant others. Not all men actively oppress women. And these posters say it all."

In the campaign posters, seven women share stories about the men in their lives to prove that while sexism exists, not all men are the perpetrators.

The posters have been shared thousands of times online and prompted some to share their stories on social media.

But many others on Twitter have pointed out that men should not be applauded for simply not being rapists.

Others have suggested that talking about sexism should always be the priority, even if it does mean hurting some men's feelings.
