Equality And Transparency
Men’s rights are often ignored and many in certain quarters believe that they should not exist at all. The mere concept of men’s rights are often ridiculed. Some believe it is an infringement on women’s rights if men also began actively campaigning for men’s rights. But we need to remember that human rights extends to all humans, irrespective of gender, race or age.
It is important to understand that campaigning for men’s rights is not about denying the importance of women’s rights. There are approximately 9,000 male victims of rape in England and Wales each year. SurvivorsUK is one of the few organisation’s helping male rape and sexual abuse victims by busting some of the myths around male rape and offering counselling and support to victims.
In particular within domestic violence cases, men’s rights are often ignored or disregarded, and no public support system exists for men to seek help from. The court system fails to acknowledge that the present system for identifying if a man is truly guilty is insufficient.
It is a fact that one third of all domestic violence cases brought forward against men are in fact falsified. Yet the justice system, the laws of the land and every law keeping institution in the UK fails to deliver a system that provides both parties with a fair and free and transparent opportunity to present their case in the court of law.
