I’ve been sent a collection of stories and poems that an Australian group – Australian Coalition for children’s rights to equal parenting – is using to try to raise awareness into ALIENATION AND CHILDREN’S RIGHTS. Here’s a poem, which the organisation has included:
“As a woman, I know I have much more than equal rights.
I know that the system is set up to help me abuse, lie, punish and even murder with no consequences.
As a woman, married to a wonderful, trusting man, I can betray that trust and easily replace him with another.
As a woman, I know now that when he has been replaced, I can claim our home that my wonderful trusting husband has worked hard for, so I can continue my new life and share that home with the new other.
As a woman, I know that I can erase my husband out of his children’s lives, because I don’t want him in mine.
As a woman, I know I can abuse my husband, but then lie and claim to be abused by him to gain a DVO to put obstacles and hinder any prospect of my husband continuing to have a loving caring relationship with his own children.
As a woman, I know that if he wants to fight for his rights, it will cost him lots of money that he hasn’t got since I got most of it in the settlement, but still I haven’t got to worry because I get all legal representation for free.
YAY FOR EQUAL RIGHTS!”
