MHRA’s often discuss reproductive technologies that might bring men a greater level of choice in whether they become fathers. A related topic ‘artificial wombs’ promises to empower men while releasing women from the (supposedly) oppressive responsibility of having a larger share of legal power over reproduction.
Men’s Rights activists seek to bring awareness to how men are acted upon by society, acted upon by other men and acted upon by women. They are opposed by feminists who think that bringing attention to how men are acted upon will take something away from women. Alison Tieman explains the dynamics in this video with the help of a few magnets.
Most people assume that the men’s rights movement is a backlash of reaction to gender feminism of the 1960′s. Not so. Not even close. Robert St. Estephe tells our story here, with clarity and conviction. It is spectacular effort by a great writer, and is must reading for all MRHAs.
