Tell me how

We live in a patriarchal society, created and lead by men for the benefit of men ahead of all others.

Yet fewer than 1.5% of men will every rise to a position of power and control, to lead a major corporation or organisation, become a military or political leader.

For the other 98.5% of men reality can be very different.

Look at the school dropout rates and tell me how our societies benefit men.

Look at our juvenile justice system, unemployment and redundancy figures and tell me how our societies benefit men.

Look at workplace accidents and workplace deaths. Alcohol abuse and drug addiction. Look at the road toll and tell me how our societies benefit men.

Look at our courts and prisons. Murders, the murdered and the murderers.

Look at suicide rates and the rows upon rows, upon rows of war graves all around the world. Look at the homeless, look at our reduced life expectancy and tell me how our societies benefit men.
