Save the Males
Save the Males is a book by Richard F. Doyle about the men's movement in America which attempts to counter some of the radical feminist errors of the women's movement.
- The legitimate men’s/fathers’ movement grew from early efforts at divorce reform. While early fathers groups organized in opposition to mistreatment in divorce, several activists came to recognize divorce discrimination as part of a broader pattern of discrimination against men per-se. Nevertheless, the movement’s largest constituency remains in the divorce and fathers’ rights field.
- In America, organized reform began in the 1800s with small groups scattered about. The National Sociological League was perhaps the earliest large organization. In 1931 its Executive Director, Dr. Alexander Dallek, claimed 25,000 members, from every state in the union. They attacked shotgun marriages and unreasonable child support. In 1932 an organization called The Family Protection League lobbied state legislatures. No details of its demise are recorded.
