A set of wrong beliefs Some of this article is an adaptation from a conference presentation made at Biel, Switzerland, on 14 August 1991. Sadly, despite being presented almost 30 years ago at a world forum, these myths and nonsense are still circulated. If anything, now they have been around for so long, they have Read more…
One of the categories of crime within the VAWG umbrella is Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking. You may think that this mostly involves women and girls being exploited as prostitutes. Well a lot of it does – but most does not.
There used to be twice as many [care] sessions delivered to girls: now there are nearly four times as many. In view of boys outnumbering girls in the care and protection plan data, this is odd.
Jess Phillips and Those False Allegations Jess Phillips proves that in the UK you don’t need to be honest, you don’t need to care about half the population, you can still be elected to Parliament. Jess Phillips MP ran a campaign of false abuse against a clearly innocent man. He was a staunch campaigner for Read more…
منذ نحو 6 سنوات، قرر “عادل نافع” الزواج من سيدة ثانية بخلاف “أم العيال”، وقع اختياره على “تهاني” التي حظيت بدرجة قبول كبيرة لدى الموظف بشركة مصر للبترول بالسويس، واستأجر لها شقة بمنطقة الطالبية غربي محافظة الجيزة، ليقسم أيام الأسبوع السبعة بين المنزلين.
سريعا دبت الخلافات بين الزوجين حديثي العهد، طالب “عادل” زوجته بالتخلي عن ابنتها من زوجها السابق، فقابلته بطلب تطليق زوجته “أم أطفاله الأربعة” وكأن الأمر مباراة ملاكمة يسعى طرفاها لحصار الطرف الآخر حتى توجيه الضربة القاتلة له.
Under Egyptian Personal Status law, although the father is considered to be the guardian of his children, the mother has the right to custody of both male and female children until they reach fifteen years of age. This is applied even if the mother is foreign and intends to take the children out of the country.
The mother kept demanding more, however.
At one time, she made a video of her beating the child. In a short clip, the boy’s skinny body appears, his tears overflowing as he was severely beaten by a woman asking him in a loud voice to call his father, “Say, come, take me .. the spirit of living with him threw you like a dog.” It seems the threat was to pay more, or to see his son beaten.
Be fair to feminists. To be treated better is in their hands.
To those not well versed in the manner in which policy narratives have changed in the last dozen years, prepare yourselves for the radical revision of the meaning of the word “equality” which is now politically and judicially established.
Do not imagine that these are mere philosophical niceties without import in the real world. On the contrary, they have a profound impact on the lives of at least hundreds of thousands of people annually.
…But conceding the “gendered nature” of domestic abuse perpetuates the myth that domestic abuse is overwhelmingly perpetrated by men upon women, that women perceive the harm of such abuse far more acutely than do men, and that domestic abuse is specifically a tool used by men to maintain patriarchal power and control over women.
All these claims are refuted by empirical evidence…
This is lamentably by no means the only reason to be concerned that long-cherished principles of justice are now being overturned. But that’s another story and I’m out of time.
Trinidad and Tobago, where International Men’s Day began in 1992, is back on the headlines. Psychologist Dexter De Bellotte calls for safe spaces where men can talk about their problems.
Matthew said that in the months before his son died, he had telephoned social services and asked: “What is it going to take for you to investigate? Bruises? Broken bones? Or my son to be killed by her?” The alleged reply was: “It won’t come to that.”
Japanese women are attacking men in increasing numbers, sometimes fatally.
Overall, Japan has seen a decrease in suicide in recent years. However, for men, there is a distinct increase.
France’s Ministry of Equality is considering legislation which punishes partners who so abuse their partner that they commit suicide. If other countries were to follow suit, men as well as women would start to get better legal protection from their abusive partner.
