“1933 Men’s Association” – London

The following newspaper clippings provide evidence of a men’s advocacy organization formed in 1933. The organization was concerned with the “pampering” of women to the detriment of men, in what the organization considered the increasing gynocentric culture of England.

    I had to google M. Bennell and found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Bennell
    I wonder if it is the same woman? Sounds like it was. Rather than being a pariah among women considering her views at the time it would appear she had plenty of supporters. What’s more she was no shrinking violet, obviously, and well in charge of her own life. This doesn’t sound like some sort of brainwashed mouthpiece to me:

    “Margaret Bennel was described as tall, of distinguished appearance with an athletic figure. In her younger years she had represented her country in fencing tournaments, later instructing keen pupils in the art. Both her voice and exceptional command of the English language were a delight to listen to and she was highly respected by both students and colleagues. Yet if the need arose, she might be found on her knees scrubbing the kitchen floor.”

    Perhaps the feminists “quailed” before her!

      LOL! She died 23 July 1966. I’ve known a few women who would fit that description however none of them both straight and single at the moment. Sorry.
