“Man Prayer”

    I'VE SAID IT BEFORE and I'll say it again: feminism cannot and should not exist without men. Here is a video titled "Man Prayer" for One Billion Rising, by Tony Stroebel, with words by Eve Ensler. I couldn't help noticing, though, that the powerful sentiments were scripted by a woman. ;) For more on One Billion Rising, stay tuned to Ultra Violet.
