Profeminist Men's Group have decided that we would like to start a brand
new gender discussion group open to people of all genders. For us, the
men-only experience has been very positive, especially in terms of
deconstructing our role in patriarchy as oppressors, understanding how we
got to become men, mutual support and raising our consciousness. At this
point we feel we'd like to create:
· A constructive dialogue between people of all genders which has a
clearly feminist perspective.
· A group which takes the feminist principle "the personal is political"
seriously and aims to create a space where we can talk openly about our
own experiences of gender, of perpetuating oppression and of being
oppressed, and not be afraid to be ourselves.
· An opportunity to learn from each other's lives and to support each
The possibilities for this group are pretty much endless, so why not get
involved and help shape what the group will do and how it will work.
Please do get in contact if you're interested ( firstname.lastname@example.org) and come along to our first meeting at the London Action Resource Centre (LARC, 62 Fieldgate Street, E1 1ES) on Sunday 19th October at 3pm. Oh, and tell all your friends!
The men's group will continue to meet, probably on the weeks in between the gender
inclusive meetings. The group can be contacted on email@example.com, or check out the blog, londonprofeministmensgroup.blogspot.com
