    While advocating for feminist policies is commendable, the best way for a man to demonstrate his feminism is by actions.  I attend weekly religious services, which are followed by a light meal.  A traditional view in our society is that women perform such set-up and clean-up volunteer roles.  So for at least the past 6-7 years, I help set-up and do all of the dishes at the end.  By modeling this behavior for my children, and for others, I counter messages about roles that sometimes are sometimes unconsciously embedded in our culture.
