The Reasons FOR a Ministry for Men….getting to the heart of it…

Sat 15th June 2019:

We have talked about this, and we need to keep talking about it. If a Ministry were to exist, what information could we supply this Ministry for our Men. There has been some negativity for the idea,, but what would the positives actually be.

A Warren Farrell debate

I have a problem with the unqualified promotion of Warren Farrell. I read a couple of his books around the turn of the century when he came to New Zealand. First let’s have a look at his history; lives in the US, got married, didn’t have any children. Went through a separation. Did a bit […]
