Myth: Suffragettes won women the vote

Please check-out this ‘Myths’ tab on the gender parity website. We are compiling short refutations of common myths which prop up the anti-male narrative. As you will see, we do not need to create alternative points of view – we simply link to the evidence.

“Suffragettes won votes for women.” I blame it on Mary Poppins! Everyone I have spoken to about this believes a well-rehearsed myth: that women had to struggle and be militant because men opposed votes for women. Read what actually happened.

Video 1: I was wrong about the Democratic Party. Georgia H

This video is not directly about men’s issues, but the content is relevant. It is about the mental process of someone observing their views change and seeing their own biases. Georgia is an American who has worked in the front line of education in a deprived area and as a nurse in A&E. As with this stunning account by Cassie Jaye as she describes her own mental process while making her Red-Pill documentary, both women describe how unaware they were of their own biases and the tortuous process of self-realisation.

These are important because they give us insight into the reaction so many of us experience when we express views which oppose the anti-male narrative. They help us see that the majority of people who espouse the anti-male narrative are not evil conspirators, but ordinary folk who picked up the beliefs from the world around them.

Petition: Equality – Review of law

This petition entitled: ‘Equality – Review all law, policy and strategy to meet the needs of men and boys’ asks Parliament to review all Legislation, Policy & Strategies to ensure men and boys are represented equally in the narrative or they are gender neutral.

Started by Split the Difference, they want both genders to have equality and their human rights served through services designed based on evidenced need. They have evaluated over 15 laws and the services they deliver, and believe the UK government has written these in favour of women and girls often excluding men and boys.

Video 2: Masculinity isn’t toxic. Peter Lloyd on Triggernometry.

Peter Lloyd is a journalist and author of Stand by Your Manhood: A Game-changer for Modern Men. In this interview for Triggernometry he covers nearly the whole range of men’s issues in a direct and unapologetic way. The comments on Amazon and on the YouTube video are overwhelmingly positive.

These are not just a good interview and a good book, they both illustrate the silent majority who do not support the current anti-male narrative. These people need a voice.

Group: Parental Alienation UK

Parental alienation is a form of domestic abuse, where one parent or main care-giver effectively takes ‘exclusive possession’ of the child and systematically erodes the other parent from the child’s life.

Parental Alienation UK welcomes any parent or grandparent who is being erased from their children’s lives. Their website has been developed just for you.
