Dear Brothers, from Mike Morrell

Guest post by Mike Morrell, from MikeMorrell.org  Dear Brothers: Have you noticed it? We’re entering a sea-change. For generations, our unconscious actions and ways of being toward women went unnoticed, were accepted by default, or even celebrated. But in the public sphere, the tide is turning. These altered currents arguably started with Bill Cosby. Then Donald Trump, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly (“the conservatives”) crested the...
