The National Organization for Women, the largest body of feminists on the planet, as well as one of the most influential gender-issues lobbying groups in the nation, has consistently opposed practically every Father's Rights or Men's Rights bill introduced in the nation during its existence.
To achieve their goal of killing programs to help fathers they have declared any bill that focuses on helping the male gender is unconstitutional. In 1999 they opposed the Father's Count Bill which they admitted would help fathers in a variety of ways but because the bill singled out poor fathers for help, they declared the program illegal. They also immediately asked "what about the moms"?
"The ostensible goals of H.R. 3073 are to teach parenting skills to poor, non-custodial fathers and to enhance their employability so they may obtain jobs and meet child support obligations. Other services offered would include: anger management training, family planning information, tips on relationship skills and money management techniques, plus encouragment for fathers to spend more time visiting their children."
The Chicago Tribune reported on the incident and rightfully exposed NOW's "no men agenda" and revealed the fact that the organization was successful in forcing the Government to include mothers in the program. Still they were not satisfied. The article also reveals NOW's feminist hypocrisy by showing how they had no problem pushing for the Violence Against Women Act even though the funds from the program were not to be used to help men.
This is the feminist movement's track record and it highlights why they are the enemies of true equality and why the men's rights movement has been targeted by them. For more on the subject check out my recent article at A Voice for Men
