We have a holiday weekend here in the UK, and I’m off visiting friends. I leave you with this question: do men need their own liberation movement?
Fr Richard Rohr has worked in the field of men and spirituality for many years in his vision of Men as Learners and Elders (MALEs) programme. This seems to fill an important space in social and spiritual work with men.
Now David Benatar, head of philosophy at Cape Town University, is making headlines with his book The Second Sexism, in which he argues that men and boys are routinely discriminated against. There’s an interesting article about it here.
Is he right? Is a men’s movement overdue? Or is this another reaction to women becoming stronger and more successful?
What do you think?
