A challenge to all feminists, everywhere

A few months ago we posted a public consultation document detailing 18 areas in which men and boys are assaulted by the actions and inactions of the state:

We invite feedback to the document, and suggestions for other areas to address. To make the task of engaging with feedback manageable, we ask for a minimum £20 donation to party funds for the opportunity to submit feedback and have it considered by myself. I personally read and consider all feedback very carefully, and if the person providing the feedback wishes it, I engage in email exchanges and/or phone discussions.

We’ve had men and women from all walks of life provide feedback, and it’s proven a valuable exercise. Some of the feedback will undoubtedly be reflected in our 2015 general election manifesto, and I expect we’ll have nearer to 25 than 18 areas in that document.

One group has been notably unwilling to comment on the document, even when I’ve waived the request for a £20 donation. Feminists. Recently I asked the ladies at ‘The F Word’ http://www.thefword.org.uk/ if anyone associated with the site would be willing to provide feedback to the document. Despite the site having an eye-wateringly long list of contributors http://www.thefword.org.uk/archives/author/ apparently nobody was able to provide feedback on our document.

So I’m laying down a challenge to all feminists, anywhere in the world. If you’re prepared to provide feedback on the document, and afterwards engage in exchanges of information and views, email me at mb1957@hotmail.co.uk. We’ll waive the request for a £20 donation. Thank you.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
