In the era of Ms. Magazine, Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, there was a smaller, less-publicized men’s liberation movement. In the late 1970s, the movement split into two camps. A pro-feminist faction.  And the anti-feminist Men’s Rights Movement, which sees men as an oppressed group. Critics have accused them of creating a breeding ground for misogyny, internet trolling and violence against women. The father of the men’s rights movement is Warren Farrell, author of the core text of the movement, “The Myth of Male Power.” Steve Paulson sat down with Farrell for a candid talk about men’s rights and masculinity in America.
