Our public challenge of Theresa May, Home Secretary

The Home Office recently published a highly flawed and ideologically-driven consultation document on strengthening the law on domestic abuse, and associated it with an equally highly flawed consultation process. We’re publicly challenging Theresa May, Home Secretary, to hold a public inquiry instead. We’ve written to her and copied the letter to all 11 members of the Home Affairs committee. The letter is here. We’d like to warmly thank a supporter, R, for his contribution to the document.

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.

  • Awesome response Mike. Any attempt to get Theresa May to have a really check is to be applauded. Lets hope the whole committee decides to educate itself to do the job properly.

    We really appreciate what you are trying to do for people’s basic human rights. Along with Ally Fogg’s article on consent I am feeling things are beginning to move in the right direction. The main media and government will have to stop and take notice soon. I want the silent male sufferers to be able to come forward and have a genuine voice. Brick by brick we will get there.

  • The debate in Wales on the VAWG bill shows the opportunity and need to stop the circle of deceit continuing the self-serving fictions that have been left behind by the actual facts! The evidence base is clear, research for over a decade in the UK debunks the male coercion theory of DV. Too right a public debate is needed, not some stage-managed “consultation” with those already well in with the officials at the Ministry.

  • How does one participate in the “flawed” consultation process, please?

  • excellent! for stupidity to success is for wise man to stay silent….
