Frequently Asked Questions
Is CSMMD a Men’s Rights organization?
No. Men’s Rights organizations are motivated by the belief that men are declining due to women and the advances of the women’s movements and they seek to roll back many of these advances for the benefit of men. We don’t believe that for one group to prosper another has to suffer. Equality is not a zero sum game. Much of our understanding of gender inequities comes from feminist theories. Unlike the Men’s Rights movement, we are a pro-feminist organization. While we agree that men are in crisis and often overlooked due to men’s role in patriarchy, we don’t believe that women and the advances of the feminist movement need to be rolled back in order to address these issues. Quite the contrary; we believe we need to build on these advances for the benefit of all genders.
