Fabulous women are coming to town
For a start there’s the brave young filmmaker, Cassie Jaye whose movie, The Red Pill has been causing such a stir. See the latest Fan-Force screenings of the movie that we’ve organised across Australia.
Cassie is speaking at the International Conference on Men’s Issues (ICMI) being held at the Gold Coast, June 9-11 and then she will be in Sydney for a few days. I’ll be posting her media schedule on this site soon.
We’ll also be seeing the amazing Karen Straughan. Karen, also known as GirlWritesWhat, is one of the most popular women working for the men’s movement. She has more than 160,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel and her 2011 vlog on "Feminism and the Disposable Male" video has almost 1.5 million views. Karen is extraordinary – totally brilliant, well-informed and an incisive, ferocious debater. See her demolishing Naomi Wolf on a televised panel discussion.
Karen will be in Sydney for the week prior to the conference. She’ll be doing an hour long interview with Rowan Dean and Ross Cameron on the Sky News’ The Outsiders at 10 am on Sunday June 4. I’m sure that will be well worth watching.
Then on the night of Tuesday June 6, Karen is doing a Q&A with viewers of Mark Latham’s Facebook. Live streaming from 8.00 pm. You can send in short video questions or written questions/comments or wait until that evening and post them on the facebook page for Karen to answer. It should be great fun.
Finally for our Sydney people – Karen is speaking on Wednesday June 7 at The Sydney Institute on Why Marriage is Too Risky for Men. The event starts at 5.30 pm, level 40, Governor Phillip Tower, 1 Farrer Place, Sydney. Anyone can come along – you don’t need to be members. It’s important Sydneysiders show that we welcome a fresh voice on topics too long dominated by a feminist perspective.

I've long admired the way Mark Latham is speaking out about men's issues, particularly exposing the distorted statistics aimed at giving the impression that we face an epidemic of domestic violence. He managed to extract data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showing that only 1.06 per cent of women are actually...more»
I’ve long been amazed by the willingness of the Australian media to buy into using crazy terminology for the gay community, like LGBTIQ or “alphabet soup” as some call it. It is nonsense to suggest the ever-growing Rainbow Coalition is a unified group, lobbying for cohesive, recognised goals. The reality is that...more»
There's an interesting new academic in town. Roy Baumeister is an eminent professor of psychology who has recently moved to Brisbane. I've been in touch with him for many years because he is a world expert on gender differences in sexual desire. I quoted him in my recent books and he's...more»
I wish I had a dollar for every letter I have received from an Australian man congratulating me for daring to write about what’s happening to men in this country. I’ve written about issue after issue where men are being done over: the denial of women’s role in domestic violence;...more»
