Picture shot at the Norweigian Parliament: Warren Farrell a leading figure of the American Men’s Rights Movement and chairman Simon Simonsen. Both Farrell and Simonsen – like hundreds of millions of other men – have turned away from a pro-feminist stance in their youth, and now see current feminism as the core problem in our society.
Manderådet (known in English as The Danish Men’s Council), was established in 2019 as the Danish arm of the International Men’s movement. It acts as an organization for the interests of Danish boys, men and fathers. It’s working in the areas of Boys’ and Men’s rights as well as social, professional and economic interests of boys, men and fathers.
The Danish Men’s Council is a group working to politically speak truth to power on behalf of boys and men, as well as to build support and assist existing initiatives and support men, boys and fathers by increasing their political voice and standing together to effect political change in Denmark. One concern is to politically support reputable Danish boys’, men’s and fathers’ organisations so they can gain funding and for their important work.
Today they are greatly underfunded.
