I have matured as a man to understand where my suspicion of women comes from, and how that has everything to do with me and nothing to do with them. I have to deal with that. So, I’m still me. I can still be a bigoted, hard-headed, sexist man, but what I’m not is a misogynist. I don’t see women as lower class or lower than; I see them as partners and equals, and that’s beginning to come into fruition into my music. I’m blessed to have grown to this point for a big reason, because I have a woman that has challenged me now and I have two daughters that challenge me constantly to rethink these things.

—Killer Mike, who is part of Outkast’s Dungeon Family, discussing his feminist awakening and how it shows up on his new album, one 2012’s best, R.A.P. Music.

Letting the men in your life in on your feminist struggle might change their life, too.
