Following the #MeToo campaign, which shows the magnitude of sexual harassment and assault in everyday life of women, men are now weighing in with the hashtag- #HowIWillChange. Many women came forward and spoke about their experiences using the hashtag #MeToo.

But some men think that these experiences would not be enough to bring a change in society and therefore started a campaign #HowIWillChange to support their better allies. With this hashtag, they intend to suggest how men can dismantle the rape culture.

Started by an Australian journalist and screenwriter Benjamin Law, the hashtag is now trending with more men addressing the sexual violence. “Guys, it's our turn. After yesterday's endless #MeToo stories of women being abused, assaulted and harassed, today we say #HowIWillChange,” Benjamin Law kicked off the campaign.

Writer Andrew Webster wrote on Twitter- “#HowIWillChange: I will listen to women more closely, seeking to understand before seeking to be understood. Then, if it helps, I will act.”

Another user wrote “#HowIWillChange I will keep showing my 3 sons and one grandson how to honor & respect women. Guys - meaningful change starts in the home.”

Here are some of the tweets:
