God bless the W.I
I spoke at the Dorset W.I. AGM on 22nd April. I felt surrounded by like minded women when I finished speaking we sang God Save The Queen and there was nobody there to sneer at us. The things that matter to me mattered to them - the family, our country and the future of our children. I talked about the importance of the family to the fabric of our society. I talked to them about what happens when women are forced out of their homes and their communities because they have no choice but to work. The society crumbles and there is no one home for children. I talked to them about the fact that fathers have been disenfranchised from their homes and families and the need to make peace with men. For me it was one of the most heart warming days I have spent I have spent in years. God bless the W.I.
Jewish Women's Aid
I attended the Jewish Women's Aid annual luncheon on 13th of May. I remembered the difficulty I had when we were unable to keep a kosher kitchen. I remember having to order the Rabbis about of the refuge when they came to reclaim the women who had taken refuge. I was so pleased to find Brenda Shack who first invited me to come to their luncheon many years ago. The guest speaker was Kirsty Young - she is a shining example of a woman who is a huge success but juggles like we all do with or homes, families and our jobs. There were 360 of us sitting in a huge marquee all gathered together to support the only Jewish refuge in Europe.
October 27th at the Oxford Union
Debate at the Oxford Union
"Did middle class women betray the feminist movement?"
Yes they did. There never was a feminist movement. A bunch of disenchanted women refused to support their left wing men who were fighting capitalism. They changed the goal posts and said capitalism was no longer the battle ground it was now 'Patriarchy' and declared war on all men and the family.
The new utopia was to be women and children only. That should lead to a lively discussion????
In defence of the FamilyRead what Professor Ruth Wisse, from Harvard has to say:
"Women’s Liberation, if not the most extreme, then certainly the most influential neo-Marxist movement in America, has done to the American home what communism did to the Russian economy, and most of the ruin is irreversible. By defining between men and women in terms of power and competition instead of reciprocity and co-operation, the movement tore apart the most basic and fragile contract in human society, the unit from which all other social institutions draw their strength."
I believe that we stand on an abyss in the last two years of this dark century. Those of us that believe that the family is the cornerstone of any civilisation are embattled with feminist forces that seek to destroy the role of men in the lives of women and children. In 1971 I opened the doors of the first shelter for victims of domestic violence in the world. Men, women and children came to my door. The feminist movement, hungry for funds and public recognition, hi-jacked my movement and turned it into a war against men.
I recognised that children born into violent and dysfunctional families were most likely to grow up into violent and dysfunctional adults. I realised that both men and women who were not able to make harmonious and loving relationships needed help.
The feminist movement’s agenda was to declare all men as potential rapists and batterers. Under cover of the shelter movement which gave them funding and accommodation to wage their gender war against men, they began to disseminate misleading information. Legislation against fathers was put into place and family courts became hostile to men.
Horrified by these atrocities, I travelled to America and tried to make my views known. NOW issued an edict warning all NOW groups to ignore my arrival. A film of my work (the first film on domestic violence in the world), was fronted against my wishes by Gloria Steinem thus putting the film into the feminist camp. My book ‘SCREAM QUIETLY OR THE NEIGHBOURS WILL HEAR,’ was plagiarised by a feminist writer and her book became the feminist bible on domestic violence. The poison spread throughout the country and the media also became hostile to the traditional family and fathers.
Over the last thirty years people in the western world bowed meekly to the savage onslaught meted out by this hate-crazed movement. Feminists declared a ‘gender war,’ against men. This war, bolstered by legislation, ignored the reality of domestic violence and insisted that only men were perpetrators of violence against women.
The suffering of men who are physically and sexually abused and stripped of their right to have access to their children goes largely unnoticed. In the future, new legislation must recognise that a traditional family, the biological mother and father living under one roof with their children, offers those children the best possible chance of becoming healthy, loving, law abiding adults.
Those women who love their husbands, partners and sons must join with the men’s movement in seeing that anti male legislation never gets passed. This is our last chance to right a horrendous wrong. Millions of men and their children have suffered in the hands of this evil feminist movement. The time has come for men and women to say "NO" to feminism.
