Tynan Rollo is using a necktie to raise awareness for male privilege, and to raise money for Women Against Violence Against Women.

Rollo heard about “Octieber” last year, and used it to raise awareness about the difference in standards for women and men’s fashion.

Every day Rollo ties a different knot, and posts about new things he learns while doing the campaign.

This year there are workshops taking place every Wednesday in October to help facilitate discussion about the cause.

In this video we see Rollo explaining the origin of Octieber, as well as some attendees of the workshops explaining how they feel clothes change how they’re perceived.
