A Voice for Men opens today, January 25, 2014, its first office in South America.
A Voice for Men was founded in 2009 by Paul Elam. Elam, who previously worked in the mental health field in the U.S., opened the online magazine when he became increasingly concerned about the treatment of men and boys, both within the psychiatric health services and culture at large.
The site has been a success in the U.S. and the world at large, and now ranks with its millions of visitors as one of the 35,000 largest web pages in the world and among the 12,000 largest in the United States.
A Voice for Men (often called AVfM ) is a part of the men’s rights movement (MRM) , or as it is often called in English “Mens Human Rights movement” (MHRM) . A grassroots movement that first appeared in the 1920s in protest against so-called maintenance-slavery in the United States and is now rapidly growing in all parts of the world. This is in response to the increasing injustice and abuse that occurs primarily against men and boys in our communities.
AVfM is for absolute equal rights between men and women, and is highly critical of both the feminist and the traditionalist view of men and women, male and female, and especially the contempt that characterizes the perception of men and men’s rights in the world today.
AVfM takes an absolute stance against violence, racism and sexism. We are a peaceful movement working for human rights and a greater empathy for the men and boys in our society.
Besides Paul Elam, the esteemed author Warren Farrell, Erin Pizzey the founder of the domestic violence shelter network, esteemed academician Miles Groth and many other important figures in the international academia and media are contributors to A Voice for Men
