Apparently nothing but unfortunately nothing in the sense that the latest post I could find on there was dated February of this year i.e. around the time of his leaving. The board appointed Rita Fuerst Adams as their new Executive Director, she seems to have a fairly impressive CV:-

Rita has been an invaluable behind-the-scenes advisor to Fathers and Families since 2003. She knows our operations, personnel, and issues backwards and forwards. She has already proven herself a hard-driving, tireless leader, a relentless organizer, and an inspiring motivator. Now she makes the transition to Executive Director.

A native of Ohio and current resident of Boston, Rita has more than twenty-five years' experience in not-for-profit management, organizational development, and fundraising. She has served many charitable and philanthropic organizations, created and built affiliates of national organizations, and established fundraising programs. Rita also teaches a course on Entrepreneurship for Nonprofits at Wheelock College in Boston. She is the author of several articles and the editor of a book on fundraising regulations and laws. She holds an MBA from Capital University and a BS in Journalism from Ohio University.

Rita has had the opportunity to work with our Directors, affiliates, contributors, and members. Rita said, "Fathers and Families has the most committed and dedicated volunteers I have ever had the honor to work with and serve. I look forward to working even more closely with them."

However since her appointment there has either been zilch happening under her stewardship or there has been activity but for some mysterious reason no one has bothered to update the website on what that activity might be!
Don't get me wrong I am not singling out Rita Fuerst Adams the new exec. director for criticism as the Chairman and the rest of the board must have some responsibility also for what does transpire there or not.
In reality I am totally baffled  :dontknow: and somewhat concerned that a once highly effective organisation for positive change in family matters has gone utterly silent without any explanations.
If anyone has any hard knowledge (i.e. not speculation) on what has being going on - I'm sure I'm far from the only one who would like to know about it.

There is nothing on the F & F website as far as I can see but nevertheless as an email subscriber I received an email yesterday containing this news:-

A Message from Ned Holstein, M.D., M.S., Chairman of the Board


Ned Holstein
It is with equal measures of regret and optimism that I announce Glenn Sacks’ decision to resign his post as Executive Director of Fathers and Families. Fathers and Families grew faster during the past three years under Glenn’s leadership than it has at any point since I helped found it 14 years ago. To my personal regret, Glenn has decided to move on. (see Glenn’s statement below).

Beginning five years ago, I sat with Glenn and his family in his California back yard, trying to cajole him into joining Fathers and Families. I knew I was talking to a special talent. As a journalist and blogger, Glenn had amassed the biggest audience in the world on gender-related issues as seen from the male point of view, including reform of the family courts. He wrote and spoke with precision, a solid grasp of the facts, balance, and with respect for both men and women.

It was a wonderful day for Fathers and Families when he eventually agreed to become Executive Director. With Glenn at the helm, we were able to develop a two-pronged attack on gender bias and injustice in the family courts: 1) the “air war,” using the media to create an identifiable national brand-name organization for family court reform; and 2) the “ground war,” working with volunteers and financial contributors to develop chapters in as many states as possible. As a result, we now have affiliated chapters in Massachusetts, Ohio, and California, and Working Groups in half a dozen other states, with more on the drawing boards.

Glenn, this organization will miss you, as will I. We still have a long way to go, but you have helped build the engine that will get us there.


Rita Fuerst Adams
I also approach this transition with optimism. The Board of Directors has appointed Rita Fuerst Adams as our new Executive Director. Rita has been an invaluable behind-the-scenes advisor to Fathers and Families since 2003. She knows our operations, personnel, and issues backwards and forwards. She has already proven herself a hard-driving, tireless leader, a relentless organizer, and an inspiring motivator. Now she makes the transition to Executive Director.

A native of Ohio and current resident of Boston, Rita has more than twenty-five years’ experience in not-for-profit management, organizational development, and fundraising. She has served many charitable and philanthropic organizations, created and built affiliates of national organizations, and established fundraising programs. Rita also teaches a course on Entrepreneurship for Nonprofits at Wheelock College in Boston. She is the author of several articles and the editor of a book on fundraising regulations and laws. She holds an MBA from Capital University and a BS in Journalism from Ohio University.

Rita has had the opportunity to work with our Directors, affiliates, contributors, and members. Rita said, “Fathers and Families has the most committed and dedicated volunteers I have ever had the honor to work with and serve. I look forward to working even more closely with them.”

She said that one of the sweetest phrases she has heard after speaking with many people who contact Fathers and Families is “I finally saw my children.” She hopes to hear this more often.

When asked why she accepted the position as ExecutiveDirector, Rita responded, “I believe Fathers and Families is poised to bring about fundamental social change.  We are opening doors with our simple message of shared parenting and gender equality, with equal rights and responsibilities for fathers and mothers.  We will make this the norm and the expectation in every state. I believe anything less penalizes innocent children.”

As we make this transition, we wish Glenn the very best in all future endeavors, while we step forward into a promising future with Rita.

For those of you who wish to communicate with Glenn or thank him for his service, the email address [email protected] will no longer reach him. He should be emailed at [email protected]

Moving On

Glen Sacks
After three years of serving as Executive Director of Fathers and Families and 11 years of working to correct the injustices of our family court system, I have decided to move on.

I am proud of what Fathers and Families has accomplished. When I became Executive Director in January of 2009, Fathers and Families was primarily a Massachusetts organization. Since then we have become a national force, with tens of thousands of supporters throughout the US and abroad.

Our accomplishments during these three years include:

    Helping pass 11 family court reform bills in six states, and helping block numerous harmful ones
    Garnering 350 separate media mentions, including three dozen opinion columns and placements in numerous major media outlets
    Waging 15 protest campaigns or campaigns in support of legislation, the overwhelming majority of them successful
    Working in the face of a terrible economy to make our 2009 and 2010 revenues greatly exceed those of 2008, and make 2011 our best fundraising year ever.

Fathers and Families is stronger than ever, and I urge all of you to continue to support its growth.

The email address [email protected] will no longer reach me — my current email address is [email protected]

Together with you in the love of our children,
Glenn Sacks, MA
National Executive Director,
Fathers and Families (January 2009-January 2012)

==================================
There is no explanation offered on his blog @ http://www.glennsacks.com which I think is somewhat odd given the good work he did @ F & F and the suddenness of his departure. If anyone knows more about why he left perhaps they could post details to this thrread.

Main / Meet the Female Paedophile
Nov 14, 2011, 08:15 PM
From youtube and another excellent video uploaded by manwomanmyth ...

Although we like to think that children are always safe in the hands of women, female child sexual abuse is very common, very damaging and very hidden.

Michele Elliott of Kidscape, tells it how it is.

Meet the Female Paedophile

Full film: Child Abuse - http://youtu.be/biLsTmmmZYs

This film is part of a Bitesize series of short clips that looks at individual elements of Feminism, Equality and Misandry in society.

"Rightsformothers.com" is a campaigning blog run by hardline feminists against fathers rights and against equity in the family courts - to boost their ratings I have now discovered that they are using a traffic generating site called alphainventions.com - this was set up by a cool dude called Cheru Jackson  about 18months ago and started of as a free service for generating traffic for blogs. It quickly became very popular (because it works!) that soon he introduced a premier service whereby for around a mere $10 a month your blog will stay in the reading cycle a lot longer and thereby increase traffic dramatically.  Looking at their website it is clear that they are closed minded feminists with some very nasty axes to grind and they are advertising and promoting links with well known opponents of fathers rights including the infamous Liz Kates pages and "Glens Cult" who specifically are targeting Glen Sacks.
This is a 'know thy enemy post' and some of you here who are involved in other groups for equity and fathers rights may well want to check out what they are up to - esp. if your group is one of those they are targeting either directly or through their networking.

Some time ago I left this forum in a huff after i thought that another poster was being treated too harshly - that poster was Andrew Usher.
Since then I looked at more postings by Andrew and found him rather intolerant of other views also. In short I have come to regret my position and I now discover that although *I* SYG - SYG to tis credit never blocked or terminated my account.
Right that said  - here is a story that will piss off the female supremacists around the globe..girl gunman overpowered by boy

I've been unhappy with this forum for a while now - hence my fewer posts etc. To me we should be OUT there taking the argument to the wider world not sat in here 'preaching to the converted' etc. I now post in pretty hostile forums and in the comment sections of some major online Newspapers where the feminist 'perspective' is the one that is predominant. That is where the 'coal face' is - not in this goldfish bowl or 'right wing rules' in MRA politics etc. Now I know some of you DO get out there and I have known some of you longer than this forum has been  in existence - I admire your patience for putting up with much of the small minded bickering that goes on in here when someone arrives whose 'politics' don't fit.
Well the treatment given to Andrew Usher in here has finally disillusioned me - it smacks too much of bullying to be frank and one thing I cannot abide is BULLIES.
Bye all.

The sheer misandry and sexism in this article has to be read to be believed - quite a few CIF'ers (comment is free posters) have been doing their best to point out the blatant flaws in this article but it seems the sistahs have called in some reinforcements - anyone who wants to ensure the voice of reason is not drowned out should come on down and have at it. Of course you would have to register to comment but it is free and doesn't ask for too many details.
Here is a taster quote but be warned it gets worse as the article goes on:
Quote
In pay, pensions, politics and promotion, the gender gap is a disgrace. But in justice, women face a national scandal. A report published today by the Fawcett Society reveals a justice system that is "institutionally sexist". This is of no surprise to organisations such as the Howard League, which have long campaigned against the hopeless situation of women rotting in our prisons.

A comment is free poster called 'LenFirewood' has posted a request in the "What do you want to talk about?" thread for Glen Sacks to write a piece about the war on fatherhood in the west.  This is the thread that posters can request articles about be covered in the comment is free section of the newspaper.
To quote from Len's post :

LenFirewood

I would like to see someone write about the current war on fatherhood that is raging almost throughout the western world. I know of a very well respected and eloquent writer in this field - he is called Glen Sacks. Here is some info from his own blog:

    Glenn Sacks is the Executive Director of Fathers & Families, the nation's largest family court reform organization.

    Fathers and Families, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, improves the lives of children and strengthens society by protecting the child's right to the love and care of both parents after separation or divorce.

    Glenn's columns have appeared in dozens of the largest newspapers in the United States. He regularly appears on radio and TV, and is often quoted in major publications.

    GlennSacks.com was founded in 2001 and is by far the largest men's and fathers' issues blog in the world.

His email address is [email protected] - he doesn't know I have suggested him but he is sure to respect the coverage that the Guardian could give to the issues he finds so important.
I'm feel confident that when you see Glenn's writings you will be assured that you would be getting a piece of excellent thought provoking material that also fulfils high journalistic standards.

If you agree with LenFirewood's request please visit the link given and recommend the suggestion.
Thanks.

Main / Men become richer after divorce??
Apr 07, 2009, 05:36 AM
You have to hand it to the Guardian because it does very little to discourage the opinion that they are anything but even handed when dealing with sexual politics!
There is so much wrong with the article below that I hardly know where to start! When you look at the findings more closely you quickly begin to see the smoke and mirrors but of course this won't stop feminists from quoting the 'headline findings' as if that was then last word on the matter!! Anyway I am posting this because it is almost certain that MRA's are going to get this b\s directed against them whenever discussing divorce and related topics.

Men become richer after divorce

Please click the above link to read the whole article - I have not quoted any part of the article here because there are so many shifts of position that a selective quote could mislead a reader into thinking that covered all the bases that the whole article does.
Anyway even in the examples given at the end of the article there are glaring omissions of information that would  radically alter the point being made. This is just an example of deliberate pandering and misinformation but it is good for us to be alerted to these new 'tricks' as they arise. I hate the whack a mole game after having had to play it for so long but if the moles aren't whacked they will proliferate and spawn even more unpleasant 'moles'!  :BangHead: :angryfire:

Main / Are fathers optional?
Feb 25, 2009, 04:41 PM
A very positive article by a brave lady who is sticking her head well above the parapets to get this important message out:-
Are fathers optional? - here is a brief extract:
Quote
Judging by their behavior, American women appear to think that fathers are optional. According to the recently published birth statistics (Births: Final Data for 2006), the proportion of births to unmarried women has reached 38.5%, the highest rate ever recorded.

... [T]he proportion changed relatively little during the years 1998-2002, but has since climbed sharply, reaching 38.5% compared with 34.0 in 2002. While the overwhelming majority of teenage births have long been nonmarital .., these proportions have risen very steeply for women aged 20 years and over. For example, among women aged 20-24 years, the proportion increased from 37% in 1990 to 58% in 2006. Similar increases are seen for other age groups ... The proportions of nonmarital births among population subgroups ranged widely: ... 26.6% for non-Hispanic white, 49.9% for Hispanic, ... and 70.7% for non-Hispanic black births.

  In other words, more than ľ of white children, Ĺ of Hispanic children, and almost ĺ of black children were born to mothers who did not feel that marriage was necessary. Since marriage reflects the commitment of mother and father to stay together permanently, it means that a large proportion of women chose to give birth without taking steps to make sure that the father would live with his child and be a permanent presence in his or her life.

Fathers are not optional, though. On almost every possible parameter of child well being, children with resident fathers are far better off than those with absentee fathers.

wikipedia Nuclear Family
Quote
Single-parent households are now considered "nuclear families" as of August 2008.[citation needed]

-----------------------------
You will note on the page that there is no explanation for this re-classification. This seems to me to be yet another example of radical feminist activism at work to undermine speech and thought on this important issue. I also looked into the discussion tab of the wiki and here again I found no discussion at all to even justify this important inclusion.
When discussing the societal impact of different family structures we need to have clearly understood terms of reference.Since traditional marriage and the nuclear family do just about represent the most successful and PROVEN form of family structure then it would certainly suit a radical feminist agenda if it could hijack the term to include much more sub optimal structures within it's umbrella (i.e. single parent families). At the very least this tactic could be used to bog down meaningful discussion of family structure in semantics - a tactic far from unknown to feminists whenever they know they are on shaky ground.
I don't know if this attempt undermine the definition of nuclear family is being used elsewhere - I suspect it is. This is where we need activists of special skills because I for one do not have a clue how Wiki entries are made nor influenced so this is a call for activism for those who do.

A husband was conned for 17 years by his wife into bringing up her lover's child as his own, a court heard yesterday.

Mark Webb only found out the truth from DNA tests conducted after the girl turned 18, it is alleged. He has tried to sue his ex-wife Lydia Chapman for deceiving him over the paternity of her daughter.

Despite the clear evidence that he had been deliberately defrauded by his wife - the appeal court judges did less than NOTHING because they also blocked him from making any firther appeals!!  :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire: :angryfire:
