An organized backlash to feminism among men has increasingly made itself
visible in Canada and among most Western capitalist countries. Organized
anti-feminist groups of men tend to organize specifically on the basis
of their position as fathers. Hazy regulations concerning the web make
for a comfortable world where websites, e-mail, and on-line discussion
groups have become powerful recruiting, fund-raising, and indoctrinating
tools for hate.
Present hate laws play an important role in Canadian society, but their
adaptation for regulating cyber-hate will prove difficult. Education and
self-regulation will be imperative in handling use of ICTs by father’s
rights networks and other anti-feminist movements.
