I would like to fight for equality and fair treatment, together with you. I am Shirodj (he/him), 28 years old, living in Tilburg and currently working as a project officer at Emancipator. I grew up between two cultures: the Brabant culture and the Surinamese Hindustani culture. There are many differences between these two cultures, but they also have some painful similarities. In both cultures, dangerous behaviour by men is normalised. With my work at Emancipator I want to make my own environment safe again for everyone. Through education about masculinity in schools, at institutions and online, I want to make people aware of their male privilege and how they can actively engage in the fight against violence towards women.
