We recently published a piece about a televised debate which is going to be broadcast live on BBC3 TV this evening at 8:00. It was originally billed with the title, ‘Do we live in a sexist country?’ but I see from today’s Daily Mail that the title has been changed to, ‘What Do We Need Feminism For?’ A good question, the answer to which is, of course, ‘Nothing’. The panel will consist of three women and a male comedian. Gender equality is a fine thing. There will be two intelligent women on the panel – Angela Epstein (writer and broadcaster) and Leanne Wood (leader of Plaid Cymru). Laura Bates will also be on the panel.
About Mike Buchanan
Mike Buchanan is a British men's rights activist (MRA) and anti-feminist. He was the founder and former leader (2013-20) of this party, and handed over the leadership to Elizabeth Hobson in May 2020.
J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world which is resolutely anti-feminist and campaigns for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts. Those rights are assaulted by states' actions and inactions in many areas, almost always to privilege women and girls. 20 such areas were explored in the party's 2015 general election manifesto.
Mike was a business executive for 30 years before taking early retirement in 2010. He's written 10 books and is also a publisher. His last three books have been concerned with gender and gender politics, the most recent being Feminism: the ugly truth (2016).
Mike is the creator of the website Laughing at Feminists.
He has sole responsibility for organizing future International Conferences on Men's Issues (ICMIs) in Europe and North America, and was a key organizer of the London conferences in 2016, 2018 and the 120-speaker online conference in 2020.
