This respected social commentator is renowned for tackling unmentionable topics. A former clinical psychologist and one of Australia’s first sex therapists, she first became well-known for breaking down taboos about talking about sex.
Now it is men’s lives we aren’t allowed to speak about – the very real problems confronting men and boys in our male-bashing society. #MenToo breaks the silence about what it means to be a man in Australia today.
For decades Bettina has been telling it how it is. She writes about sex-starved husbands, the politics of cleavage, fathers losing contact with children after divorce, false domestic violence allegations, men’s soaring suicide rates, the scary grip of feminism.
Bettina sees #MeToo as simply the latest salvo in a long crusade by feminists to crush male sexuality. She finds most women are appalled by unproven allegations are being used to destroy men's careers and fed up with trivial issues being blown up as sexism. Read her powerful arguments about why feminism has gone off the rails – tilting laws, practises and regulations to unfairly advantage women at the expense of men.
This year she faced hostile protesters on university campuses as she spoke out against the fake rape crisis, the myth that our universities are unsafe for young women. Her campus tour prompted a government inquiry seeking to support campus free speech.
#MenToo – collected wisdom from decades of Bettina’s passionate advocacy for men and boys.
