5 Books About Men's Rights, Written By Women

Special thanks to the ladies who wrote the following books and created that film. Most, if not all of them, went through hell to get the truth out there.

Christina Hoff Sommers -- author of The War Against Boys -- is one of the most well-known allies of the men's rights movement. This book was famously seen in a series of pictures that showcase a smiling girl tearing out pages and burning the book in a fireplace. Christina frequently speaks in universities about misandry, radical feminism, and men's rights. Fortunately, she knows how to handle hecklers and protesters who are apparently fine with how badly their sons are treated.

Men on Strike is a great examination on why men avoid lifestyles that used to be treasured life goals, namely marriage, parenthood, and college. Author Helen Smith pulls no punches in crushing the man-child stereotype that people would rather believe, with true stories and statistics on how men get the raw deal in those choices.

It was this book that taught me about paternity fraud, which is how men like Carnell Alexander end up owing tens of thousands of dollars in child support for kids that aren't theirs. It taught me that underaged boys can be forced by the courts to pay child support to their adult rapist if they end up impregnating her. Helen was interviewed on Fox & Friends about men leaving marriage, and even the two men were combating her message.

​Esther Vilar, who wrote The Manipulated Man in 1971, stated in the 1998 revised edition that she received death threats over it, which continue to this day. At one point, she was beaten in a Munich State Library bathroom by four women over what she wrote. Unless you understand German, you'll need a browser translator for that source. In Norway, female militants invaded the office of her publisher, destroying furniture and painting anti-Vilar slogans on the walls.

​In 1990, Shahrazad Ali appeared on The Phil Donahue Show to promote The Blackman's Guide to Understanding the Blackwoman. Yes, you can look it up on YouTube. The vitriol from the audience was disgusting. Especially knowing how well her book from freakin' 1990 predicted the state of the black community today.

In the book, Shahrazad talks about the dysfunction between black couples, mainly the woman's role in these battles of the sexes. For instance, the women who "don't need no man," and the wives who hate the word "submission." She also examines the systematic removal of the black man from black families, households, and the community, and how that void hurts our race.

Dr. Tara J. Palmatier, aka A Shrink for Men, specializes in helping men who are going through toxic relationships. She teamed up with Paul Elam, the founder of A Voice for Men, to write a book of advice for those men. Whether you want to know the red flags of dating, or how to deal with false abuse allegations, Dr. Palmatier will help you "Say Goodbye to Crazy." Not only is her book full of solutions, so is her amazing blog and Facebook page. Her site also shows stories of and solutions for her clients, proving that male victims of domestic abuse and such who are viewing her page are not alone.

Last but not least, this may not be a book, but it would be a crime to leave out the most controversial documentary of the past 2 years: The Red Pill. Cassie Jaye was a rare breed of feminist, in that she actually sat down and had open-minded chats with men's rights activists. In her own words, "It wasn't learning about men's issues that made me part with feminism. It was actually learning about feminism that made me leave feminism."

The result was the film that got MRA a much-needed spotlight. Mainly due to the attempts to sweep it under the rug. Netflix refused to play it. It was banned throughout Australia. Several theaters that had planned to screen it, suddenly had it canceled. Cinema owners even received death threats for supporting it.
