Erin set up the world's first ever domestic violence shelter, Chiswick Womens' Aid, in 1971. She recognised the tragedy of how domestic violence is passed on from generation to generation and saw, first hand, how both men and women are equally affected by it. She also saw her cause hijacked by radical feminists who, through the use of its emotive appeal and false statistics, used it to raise money and support for their gender war against men and boys. They also subjected Erin to a barrage of death threats, resulting her being given police protection and driving her from the country. Radical feminism now represents mainstream opinion and radical feminists now hold political power in the family courts courts and media.
Today, Erin, is a campaigner for the Men's Human Rights Movement and fights for true equality and fairness between men and women. Here, she writes to thank her well-wishers and all those who have supported her over the years. Ed

I thank all of you who sent best wishes for my 74th birthday.
It has been a hard year but very slowly I can see more and more people are beginning to realise that domestic violence is not and never has been a gender issue.

Western governments played their part in refusing to see quite clearly that the state has usurped the role of fathers.
Men as fathers are being forcibly made redundant.
The new family is now ‘woman and their children.’
It is up to all of us to join together to expose the lies that have been told that has caused such a rift.
Because at the end of the day the simple truth is that all of us need and want to love and to be loved in return.
Children need and want their fathers just as much they want and need their mothers.
Sadly we still live in a bully culture.
On my 74th birthday I promise you that I want to continue to fight for the right for all of us to love each other.
And let’s kick the government and the judiciary out of our lives!
