During BBC’s Big Questions programme this week, Alex Borchardt from Families Need Fathers was howled down for saying that sex discrimination had all but disappeared in the workplace.
Our thanks to gender equality researcher Greg Andreson for this concise analysis of a report published in Australia this week, which backs up what Alex said. Differences in pay and work result from the different choices and priorities men and women have, rather than from discrimination.
“Even though this new report commissioned by the Office for Women found no evidence of discrimination against women …

Is the traditional family a modern myth?

I have always assumed that mother father and children was the classical model of family which has existed since time immemorial and so, I ask, why have we decided to dismantle this model in the last generation, when it clearly works so well?
Recently, however, it has been put to me in debates that this model of family is in fact a recent development. So I thought I’d look into it.
A Brief Global History (New York: McGraw Hill, 2008) argues that it was not until the 17th and 18th century that …

Harriet’s gender bender agenda

Our thanks to Melanie Phillips for this excellent article in the Spectator
So what do you expect if you have something called an ‘Equality Minister’? She will impose gross injustice wherever she can in the interests of a coercive and preposterous ideology. Harriet Harman’s proposal that companies should positively discriminate in favour of women job candidates (ie discriminate against men) is yet another example of the way in which feminism got hijacked and turned from a campaign for fairness for women into an onslaught against men. Her proposal is not only …

Campaign of boy-bashing

Not content with attacking men, the feminist lobby is now turning its vitriol against boys.
This morning we see in the press yet one more plank in the Government’s campaign to vilify and demoralise boys. Psychologist Linda Papadopolous published her report on the sexualisation of youngsters. Commissioned by the Home office, the report finds what everyone already knows, that children are exposed to inappropriate sexual images. The sub-text to the report, however, is that girls are victims of sexual abuse and boys are to blame.
The facts of domestic abuse are studiously …

Australia – the silent abuse against men.

In this day-time TV interview, Dr Elizabeth Celi calls for a national debate about Australian social attitudes which demean normal and natural masculinity and manhood, and denigrate fatherhood: “Where women were many decades ago, in terms of the silent phenomena of domestic abuse, that is where men are now.”

Kenya’s Daily Nation reports that 1.5m men are victims of domestic violence:
“Men stay in abusive and violent relationships to protect their children afraid that if they left they will never be allowed to see their children again. The man is afraid the woman will influence the children badly by misleading them that he is a bad person or that he doesn’t love them.” The group called for active advocacy to fight domestic violence against men.

Michelle Obama and Equality

While husband Barak attended the G20 summit, Michelle Obama took the opportunity to visit a North London school. Excellent – the students must have been delighted, an event they will always remember, and be encouraged by. But why, oh why, did Ms Obama choose a girls-only school to visit, and why did she speak about the world needing strong women?
It is boys rather than girls who are disadvantaged these days in schooling. They are the ones who need encouragement, so why visit a single-sex school, and why make it girls rather than …
