Racism in America: The Trayvon Martin Case

The National Organization for Men Against Sexism (NOMAS) is outraged by the tragic homicide of Trayvon Martin and subsequent failure of criminal justice officials to charge the man who admits to killing Martin, George Zimmerman.  This is an injustice to Martin and his family, and epitomizes the racial injustice that continues to permeate our society.

Men for Women’s Choice

Like an ever-growing number of men around the world, we think that women should control their own bodies. We hold these truths as deep moral beliefs. All humans should have the right to autonomy and bodily integrity. For women and men, this often means the same thing, but for women it has an additional meaning: the ability to make choices regarding whether she will bear a child.

We believe that no man should be able to force a woman to bear a child she does not want.

NOMAS Joins with NY- NOW to Celebrate the Legacy of Betty Freidan

Just over 50 years ago, in a house near here where we stand, a woman in her mid-30’s, Betty Goldstein Freidan, struggled in isolation, against impossible, ancient, even invisible glass-ceiling barriers, to write a book which in turn would ignite a blaze, that would finally change the world. But in the beginning, in this beautiful spot beside the Hudson, her path was steep, lonely, and up-hill.

Gay Bashing is About Masculinity

The tragic suicide of Rutgers University first year student Tyler Clementi last fall led to a wave of national hand-wringing anguish about the daily torture and humiliations suffered by young gays and lesbians. An article in The New York Times expanded the conversation to include the stories of several other gay teens who recently committed suicide, such as Seth Walsh of Fresno, Calif., who endured a “relentless barrage of taunting, bullying and other abuse at the hands of his peers.” Walsh hanged himself in September at age 13.

Yet, in our collective search for explanations and solutions we’ve missed one salient fact.
