I want to make it special but am on a very limited budget :(. How can I spoil the woman I love? A: You know how people are always say- ing “it’s the thought that counts”? Well, it is a cliché for a reason, because it is really true. I think one of the favorite presents I ever got from a loved one was a home-made calendar that had collages of all of our pictures/memories together. And all it cost was time and thought. Some budget friendly ideas: Õ A heartfelt love letter or poem Õ Cooking her favorite dinner at home for her, or cooking together Õ Making a photo/memory book of some of your best times together Õ Go old school and make her a mix- tape/playlist of “your songs” Õ Be creative and have fun this Valentine’s Day! Q: Thank you writing your Feminism 101 For Men in your Oct 2016 issue. I am a feminism ally and want to be more active. How can I best help support gender equality? A: I am glad to hear you loved our arti- cle! Here are some places/things you can do to be a feminist ally: Õ Does your work place encourage pay equality (equal pay for equal work)? Check with your HR de- partment to see how you may be able to help get your company more open and equal. Õ Consider donating or volunteering at women focused causes. This can be at domestic abuse shelters, supporting breast cancer research, anti-trafficking organizations, etc. You can find some good organizations here: www.charitynavigator.org Õ A lot of cyber bullying happens to everyone online, but especially of women. If you see someone in the comments attacking a woman with words of violence, consider step- ping in and standing up for her. This goes for if you see trouble in real life too. Õ Sometimes just being a good man and supporting the ladies in your life in what they want to do is the easiest and best thing you can do. Q & Aə a
