Public Talk: Men’s Issues Awareness Around The World: From Russia to Canada, A Global Comparison

CAFE is pleased to promote a unique and exciting talk hosted by the U of T Men’s Issues Awareness Society

Men’s Issues Awareness: A Global Comparison

​Join us for a public talk featuring Igor Serebryany, columnist, editor, a former Producer of BBC World Service and a former member of the Moscow Provincial Parliament, who founded an organization similar to ours in Russia called the All Russia Fathers’ Committee. Full bio below.

He’ll compare the issues faced by boys and men in Russia with those we experience in Canada and offer a comparative global analysis of the status of males in various parts of the world.

Igor is in Canada for a brief stay so don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear an international perspective on issues that matter to us.

Full Bio of Igor Serebryany

Born in 1965 in Moscow, Russia (then Soviet Union).

Graduated Moscow State University, major – journalism, in 1987; U.S. National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (Washington, DC), major – public relations, in 1997.

I’ve been working in various Russian, British, Canadian, Chinese mass media since 1987 to date. In 1993-1997, I was a member of Moscow Provincial Parliament.

I moved to Canada permanently in 2002, but had to come back to Moscow in 2008, after my newborn son was abducted by his Russian mother. (This is why and when my struggle started).

    These moron protestors have no shame. Rather than engage in debate and dialogue they try to shut down events, This is what University of Toronto has become. Nice image to give a so called world class education institution.

    Men’s Issues advocates lack a reliable and thorough published resource that explains the ideology (or, more properly, closely related, overlapping ideologies, plural) which stands behind the agenda and propaganda they combat. “Patriarchy” the core concept is far too frequently understood as anti-male. The term refers to the role of fatherhood, and all that the philosophers of anti-patriarchy infer that flows from the natural family with a father present. The knowledge is available. Yet never has anybody solicited writings from the best qualified people to assist people in mastering the history and structure of the well worked-out, well-established ideas, goals, agendas and future plans of the large and hugely influential network they woulk like to oppose. The qualified people are, by and large, humanities professors with at least three decades of experience in the university system. It would require a series of at least a dozen article (written by several authors) to get the job done (thoroughly summarizing the anti-patriarchy philosophy/ideology and the history of its dissemination and institutional deployment).

Misandry and anti-patriarchy absolutely must be seen as separate, though related issues. Of the two anti-Patriarchy is the more important, by far.

      That’s what I like about them. Fuck ideologies.
      Of course this is easier said than done, but most show no concern for an ideology movement and all about men’s rights that are lacking in comparison to female ones, or male rights that are lacking along with female ones.
