Mary Jones, a 64-year-old wife and mother of three sons, writes…

A couple of weeks ago we received a call from Mary Jones, a charming 64-year-old lady who lives in the East of England. She was very supportive of what we’re doing, and wished to make a donation. I invited her to submit a letter explaining why she’s supporting us, with a view to publishing it on this website. She kindly agreed. We’ve just received the letter and a generous donation, for both of which we’ve thanked her. The content of Mary’s letter takes up the remainder of this post:

“I am a 64-year-old wife and mother with three sons. These are my experiences and personal observations.

The UK has become more and more anti-male. My generation of female friends are aware of the slow but sure spread of anti-male propaganda aimed at our sons and grandsons, and have expressed concerns between ourselves.

We’re aware that women’s groups, without any fear of reprimand, put men down at every opportunity and constantly criticise them in speech and in writing. Many spokespeople in the media seem to be avid feminists.

We believe the very real and frightening injustices for men are the result of insidious meddling by the government with legislation to create laws to pursue women’s groups agendas. This scares us. If the government’s plan is to secure women’s votes by this meddling, this shows a lack of knowledge and understanding of the majority of British women. We don’t want a ‘Woman’s World’, we want a fair one.

My generation of women were never victims, we are a generation who love and respect our men, we work together to build a better life. I am 64 and I have never been bullied nor intimidated by a man, although I have been bullied by women.

We all know the suicide rate amongst men in the UK is extremely high, that almost all homeless people are men, and that boys are failing at school. The law is very much on the side of women now, yet still the women’s groups crave more conflict and power, and seem indifferent to the fact that men too need support, not vilification.”

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.
