Good men aren’t hard to find. They’ve just given up.
That’s the opinion of Helen Smith, a psychologist who has had it with society’s anti-male bias.
In Men on Strike, Smith traces the history of how men in Western society have been chased out of public and private life. She sees harmful stereotypes everywhere she looks. If men aren’t dangerous predators, they’re goofy dads.
The stakes are high: one wrong move can land a guy in prison, or at least lead to his trial in the court of public opinion.
And the results are staggering: marriage rates have dropped by 40 percent, to their lowest level ever. Smith sees this statistic as a direct result of gender inequity in the U.S. family court system. What should our response plan be? Smith details the legal, educational, and cultural war on men and suggests how we can remedy it. Learn more in our Instaread on Men on Strike.
