International Men's Network.
www.mens-network.org The IMN is non-profit, nor political nor sexist. Our aims can be seen in the International Men's Manifesto but in brief we support family values, masculinity, and yes, MEN'S rights. Whilst supporting equal opportunities we are anti-feminist, for the term "femi-nazism" is an apt description of todays deliberate persecution and slander of MEN. The principal purpose of the IMN is to help bring together various men's groups, local and national, into a global coalition.
WikiMANNia: Share knowledge without feminist lies. That's our aim.
This Wiki is a knowledge base covering the topic of the discrimination of boys and men. Evidence for this kind of discrimination is scattered throughout the internet. Hence, the sheer amount of information can be overwhelming at times and different accounts of the same problem can be very confusing. This is why information about the discrimination of boys and men is collected, structured and inter-linked on this wiki. WikiMANNia is the antithesis of the feminist victim culture and hate ideology.

Men Against Discriminationwww.MADMenUnited.org
M.A.D. is an incorporated non-profit, 501 C-3 tax exempt organization dedicated to bring organization and awareness to issues concerning men. Issues where men are not getting fair representation in the media or the courts. Issues that we believe are so discriminatory as to be actually against the law. Issues that when looked at in depth are not just injustices against men, but also to society as a whole. These issues are contributing to the destruction of marriage and the traditional family. This is contributing to children in our society being raised fatherless.

Families Need Fathers
www.fnf.org.uk All who access this site have one thing in common. Be they FNF members or supporters, politicians, journalists, lawyers or other professionals, they will all have an interest - either personal or work-related - in the making, interpretation or effect of some aspect of family law. FNF is a charity which represents those on the receiving end, rather than the vested interests of the practitioners. It was founded by people who had direct experience of the way the law actually affects families. They understood, in a way which even the most respected judge, barrister, legislator or social worker can only imagine, what it is like to be one of the 'ordinary people' whose lives are determined by the decisions of family law professionals - in the case of the average FNF member, the decision to restrict or terminate his contact with his own children.
