Ken Wiebe – Suing the Status of Women Canada. Who’s defaming who? (Pendulum Effect Ep7 Available)

On today’s show I interview Ken Wiebe regarding his suing of the Status of Women Canada. Ken is from Fathers Canada, a coalition dedicated to working on behalf of fathers and children, advancing fathers’ rights and shared parenting while exposing the corruption and sexism rampant in the family law system. He was on the show on Episode 4 to discuss Father’s Canada.

Today we discuss something quite different. In 2008 Ken sued the Status of women Canada and the authors (Pierrette Bouchard, Isabelle Boily and Marie-Claude Proulx) of a report entitled “School success by gender: A catalyst for the masuclinist discourse” which sought to expose many, many men’s rights organizations for supposedly engaging in hate speech towards women. He sued them for defamation in listing his organization as one guilty of hate mongering and possibly inciting violence against women.

Plus, news and commentary in the fields of gender and equalism from our regular pundit Mark Overy, aka Argus Eyes, who runs the blog True-Equality.

Ken Wiebe is a father, a self employed business man and an independent contractor who has been a frequent independent contract consultant for government for approximately 19 years, in computer matters. He is the spokesman for B.C. Fathers, an unregistered support group for fathers and mothers in regard to access, custody and matrimonial disputes. He also assists in coordinating the coalition Fathers Canada. More info on Ken Wiebe and Fathers Canada can be found at www.fathers.ca

I’m really happy to have on the show today John Simpson. John is one of those unique guests that makes it such a pleasure to host the Pendulum Effect. He is an award winning creative film producer with over twenty years experience working in the performing arts.

John’s film productions have been screened at the Montreal International film festivals, the Palm Springs film festival, Sydney Film Fest, World of Woman Festival, Algarve Film Festival and Tropfest 2004.

John got involved recently with the film The Jammed, which explores human trafficking and illegal prostitution, helping to guarantee the film would be seen by a large public audience.

Turning from a film focusing on the lives of a group of women to one involving a group of men, he is the producer and co creator of the powerful new Australian film “Men’s Group” that was released in 2008. The film bears the tagline “All around the world men are gathering in groups to talk. What is going on?

This important film, which we’ll discuss with John shortly, received a plethora of awards, including official selection at 2008 film festivals in warsaw, Rotterdam, Copenhagen, Sydney and Melbourne as well as the winner of the prestigious Digispaa best film award. insidefilm awarded the movie best script, best actor and best film awards. It was the higest Scoring Australian Feature Film at the 2008 Sydney Film Festival (as voted by the audience)

The Herald sun said about this film “group gives a male community a chance to speak”, while infilm.com reported “With an emphasis on interesting characters and heartfelt performances, Men’s Group is a compelling drama that wields an emotional impact very few features this year – or any other year – can match.”

Ken Wiebe – Deadbeat Dads or a Deadbeat Family Law System? + Warren Farrell on Feminism and the Gender Transition Movement – Pendulum Effect Episode 4

On today’s show I interview Ken Wiebe of Fathers Canada, a coalition dedicated to working on behalf of fathers and children, advancing fathers’ rights and shared parenting while exposing the corruption and sexism rampant in the family law system.

We conclude a three part interview with Dr. Warren Farrell, men’s movement pioneer. We focus on gender history along with a discussion on historical and contemporary feminism, and the future of the gender transition movement and men’s activism.

Plus, news and commentary in the fields of gender and equalism from our regular pundit Mark aka Argus Eyes, who runs the blog True-Equality.

Ken Wiebe is a father, a self employed business man and an independent contractor who has been a frequent independent contract consultant for government for approximately 19 years, in computer matters. He is the spokesman for B.C. Fathers, an unregistered support group for fathers and mothers in regard to access, custody and matrimonial disputes. He also assists in coordinating the coalition Fathers Canada.

Dr. Warren Farrell is roundly regarded as a leading figure in the men’s movement, or better, the gender transition movement. His unique background and expertise give him a perfect vantage point from which to address men’s issues. Dr. Farrell has taught gender issues and psychology at several institutes, including Brooklyn College, Georgetown University, American University and the School of Medicine at the University of California at San Diego.

As a young graduate, Dr. Farrell was a major player in the feminist movement, especially in creating men’s groups across the US, then becoming the only man to be elected three times to the Board of Director of the National Organization for Women in New York City. Farrell was featured in media including the New York Times, the Today Show and the Phil Donahue Show, leading to his authorship of the pro-feminist book The Liberated Man.

As we discuss, in the late 80s, Farrell became increasingly convinced that feminism was rather one sided and that men’s issues were being neglected, leading to deep research on a variety of topics long taken for granted, and the publication of his landmark The Myth of Male Power, which touched on a diverse cross section of issues.

Farrell would go on to research each area in great depth, leading to the publication of 5 more books, including “Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say”, a couples communication book to address the rise in divorces, “Father and Child Reunion”, to address the issue of fatherless homes and present the optimal shared parenting solution, “Why Men Earn More” to address the pay gap, and “Does Feminism Discriminate Against Men” which, among other things, called for men’s studies in academia
