Fathers and Equality - 2015-16

4455793558_b3fecf50e7The equality4men campaign is concerned with the inequalities that impact men and boys of all backgrounds at every stage of life. The years when boys first enter adulthood are the most vulnerable years of most men’s lives. 

The following list of 10 reasons we need equality for young men is drawn from our eBook Equality For Men which you can buy today. 

1. Life Expectancy ~  In England and Wales, boys and young men aged 15 to 24 are two and a half times more likely to die than women and girls of the same age. 

2. Premature Death ~  Compared with women of the same age, young men are four times more likely to die in an accident, four times more likely to kill themselves and three times more likely to be murdered. On average, five young men die prematurely every single day and most of these deaths are avoidable.

3. Murder ~  Young men are three times more likely to be murdered than young women with 3 young men being murdered every week in England & Wales.Violence and Crime linked to fatherlessness - 2015

Goals of the Fathers' Rights Movement The fathers' rights movement arose in response to the perception that fathers were not being given equal treatment in child custody litigation. Fathers' advocacy groups typically to focus upon some or all of the following beliefs: A "traditional" division of parental roles during a marriage should not of itself mean that the father should not be considered as a custodian following divorce; Children are best served by being in the care of both parents, and thus there should be a legal presumption of joint physical custody and equal parenting time following divorce; Fathers are at a disadvantage throughout the entire custody litigation process. Fathers' rights groups assert that changes of this nature will create a family court environment where both parents are treated fairly and equally, and diminish the effects of legislation and, in some cases, of judicial bias which favors the mother. Fathers' rights groups also typically point to studies which show that the absence of a father from a child's life can lead to a wide variety of negative behavioral and educational consequences.
