Title:
The Liberator, Volume 1, Number 1
Abstract:
Based in Minnesota, the Men’s Rights Association ("MRA") published the Liberator from 1975 until at least 2004. Founded in 1972 by activist opponent of gender equality Richard F. Doyle, the MRA (it later became the Men’s Defense Association, which remains active) sought to expose through this newsletter what it thought was "anti-male discrimination in divorce, child custody and support, alimony, property settlement, employment, criminal court actions, imprisonment, retirement benefits, etc." Its first issue, pictured here, featured stories about child support for divorced couples, the input of the father in abortion cases, the rationale of no-fault divorce laws, and several updates about the media outreach and legal activism of the MRA. The triumphal fist raising the symbol of Mars appearing here on the masthead emphasized the assertive stand the MRA advocated in defense of men.
