    Does "advocate for others in general" mean "advocate publicly for others"?

    *******************
    However, recent researchsuggests that men may face a backlash for speaking out on behalf of others. Janine Bosak at Dublin City University and three of her colleagues published a study suggesting that men who take on an advocacy role in the workplace may suffer penalties for going against how we typically expect men to behave. While the study did not look at men who speak out against sexism per se, it strongly suggests that men who advocate for others in general may be seen as less competent.

    No, it doesn't mean "publicly."

    The study did not look specifically at men who speak out against sexism (but it) suggests that men who advocate for others for whatever reason may be seen as less competent.
