Janice Fiamengo

Some of the best critiques of modern feminism have come from former feminists. Good examples being Christina Hoff Sommers and Janice Fiamengo. Not only are they insightful but they are brave because feminism, along with other cults, views apostasy as the worst crime of all. I was prompted to write this post because of a… Continue reading Janice Fiamengo

WHO and UN – misandrist?

Bias against men’s issues within the United Nations and the World Health Organisation: A content analysis. Twenty-twenty has given me some cause for optimism and I think we can see the earliest signs of the pendulum swinging away from the feminists. Laura Bates’ book ‘Men Who Hate Women’ was, in my opinion, a recognition and… Continue reading WHO and UN – misandrist?

They are almost invariably female, privately educated, from a social sciences and humanities background (usually English Literature) and disproportionately Oxbridge… Continue reading The Feminist Glass Escalator
