Here is some history of the Pence Rule
This brings us back to Mike Pence. As was famously explained in a Washington Post profile of Karen Pence, the vice president doesn’t dine alone with women or attend events where alcohol is served without his wife by his side.
The generalization of this is:
Just avoid women. The less contact with them, the less likely you will get falsely accused of something.
For MGTOW’s, following the rule should not be difficult. For those with jobs that require contact with women, one can work to minimize that contact.
But what if the women notice what you are doing, and complain? With the #MeToo campaign having its effect, it appears that a tipping point has been reached. It is now clear to most people that men need to protect themselves. Probably lots of women can understand (though they may never acknowledge it). If men respond to women that they are keeping their distance for self-protection, complaining will look silly. After all, doing this protects the women also.
Naturally enough, there will be calls to man up. Classically the ultimate call to man up has been for men to join the armed services, to fight the enemies, to protect the women. In this case, man up would be a call to sacrifice oneself the meat-grinder, not of war, but of their own women. Men have little interest in doing so. We will see how this all plays out.
