Note: A previous divorce article discussed How Feminism Has Affected the Divorce and Child Custody Process.
It wasn't only the women's movement that has changed the way that child custody is granted. The men's rights movement took off after fathers got tired of being relegated to the role of part-time dad and cash cow.
They joined forces and brought about positive change for men's rights. No longer did the ex-wife have all the power. Men empowered themselves and began insisting on equity in divorce and child custody matters.
Though this was a step in the right direction, the feminists fought back, which brings us to where we are today – polarized. The feminists' attempt to masculinize women and feminize men has brought about the disaster that is modern society.
