A Voice for Men today January 13, 2014 open its second office in Europe, after AVfM UK, and the first branch that is not in English – AVfM Sweden.
A Voice for Men was founded in 2009 by Paul Elam. Elam, who previously worked as a counselor 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 page has been a success in the U.S. and the world at large, and it 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 man’s rights movement (MRM) also known as “Mens Human Rights movement” (MHRM). A grassroots movement that first appeared in the 1920’s in protest against the so-called alimony slavery in the United States and is now rapidly growing in all parts of the Western world. This is in response to the increasing injustices and abuse that occurs primarily against men and boys in our communities.
AVfM is for absolute equality between men and women, and is highly critical of both the feminist and the conservative traditionalist view of men and women, male and female, and especially the contempt that characterizes the perception of men and men’s rights, particularly in the media, in the western world today.
Sweden has been in the spotlight for AVfM right from the start, given that Sweden no doubt is a breeding ground for European misandry and a center for the development and implementation of feminist theory in the West.
Paul Elam comment on the opening of Sweden as follows:
“This development is a dream come true. This will not only give AVfM a presence in Sweden, where it is so desperately needed, it will also be led by the best person. William Anderson is a proven men’s rights activist, with a long and impeccable track record of ethical work in the service of human rights for men and boys. He has, in addition to a wide range of talents, a comprehensive understanding of these issues.”
A Voice for Men has been the subject of media attention, often critical, from the New York Times, ABC News, The Boston Globe and other major media. It has also been wrongly identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as part of a hate movement, a statement they later recanted.
AVfM rejects violence, racism, sexism and hate speech. We are a peaceful movement working for human rights and a greater empathy for the men and boys in our society and against the erosion that the prevailing concept of equality creates in our communities. All facts in the articles on the page has clear references.
Examples of people who write at A Voice For Men besides Paul Elam include Dr. Warren Farrell, Erin Pizzey and Dr. Helen Smith.
