Deepika Bhardwaj: ‘Why I chose to fight for men’

Deepika Bhardwaj is an Indian documentary filmmaker who is working on a film about the appalling legal position of married men in India, which is leading many of them to suicide. Her article has just been published on AVfM along with two short but moving trailers for her forthcoming film, Martyrs of Marriagehere. She’s a brave and honourable woman, and we wish her every success.

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.

  • The History of “498a” includes not a little pressure from groups funded by “aid”. In this way perverse results have happened from laws influenced by and ideology nurtured in very different societies. With over a billion people and variety of cultural histories to match Europe it is not surprising to see such injustices. Not only does British Government aid come with “gender equality ” strings but a number of our NGO s also explicitly focus on women and/or gender equality in their aid giving. Of course the result is often that they cut across and undermine the social fabric of the recipient society. India is increasingly less beholden to foreign finders. But many countries are much more dependent and vulnerable to this form of intervention . Effectively being subject to ideologically driven pressure without thought to the actual circumstances .
