Harvard Business Review Says Most Millennial Men Aren't Feminists. This is a Surprise? Slate
If you believe that millennial men are on board and committed to gender equality, think again writes HBR. In reality, millennial men can be just as sexist as their dads and -- brace yourself -- more so.

Water collection keeps girls out of school and women away from gainful employment to increase personal and national economic productivity.
