Our thanks to Claire for pointing us to this. It relates to the first report from the Coalition of Men & Boys, in 2009. The feminist-compliant nature of the organization is quickly apparent (obviously feminist organizations highlighted in bold text):
Who are COMAB?
The Coalition on Men and Boys is a new UK organisation that aims to:
- explore the problems that men and boys face and the problems they create
- harness the huge potential that men and boys have to contribute to the well-being of society.
- identify how policy and practice – in relation to issues such as work, fatherhood, education, health, and violence – can engage more effectively with men and boys in the UK.
Current members are Action for Children, Bradford University’s Research Unit on Men and Masculinities, the Fatherhood Institute, the Men’s Health Forum, Relate, Respect (the national association for domestic violence perpetrator programmes), and the White Ribbon Campaign.
COMAB must have sunk without trace some time ago, I hadn’t previously heard of them. We can expect the Men and Boys Coalition to sink without trace too, given its feminist ideological orientation. A virtual ‘coalition’ with nobody admitting to leadership, built on sand.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
