Men on Strike American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going “on strike.” They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this “man-child” phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility simply because they can. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?

As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren’t dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development. They are instead acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century. Men are starting to fight back against the backlash. Men on Strike explains their battle cry.


  • Repetition over substance

    By ReallySmartFella
    What a simple premise rich with material, facts, and peer reviewed data to back up its stance! This work, however, could have been far, far better than it is. Dr. Smith disappointingly resorted to the tried-and-true propaganda tactics that have found their home within the #TruthDecay climate of 2018 America. Yes, she throws a bunch of statistics at the reader along with a little data here and there. The bulk of the book, however is repetitive rhetoric which is obviously aimed at reinforcing the ideas that already got the reader interested in the first place. This material DOES NOT need to be oversold! Men are marrying less and voluntarily not having families because of a multitude of different factors. Dr. Smith’s readers know this, and would like to know why. Couldn’t she have presented those answers without the condescending mini-reviews of her opposition’s books...or without the same broken-record illustrations over and over again? I was hoping for an academic, unbiased analysis about why it is not in a man’s best interest anymore to marry or have kids. Instead, we got an elementary level bludgeoning peppered with enough data to lend it cursory credibility. She’s right, fellas, but skip this book and find the information for yourselves. Your brain cells will thank you for it.
  • Enjoyable and Straightforward

    By KaradiKid
    This book easily and directly represents arguments that show part of why Western society is self-destructing. God help us all.

    I am in my mid 30s, and this book articulates better than I can why I have no serious interest in getting married.
  • Perfect book in Men's Rights!

    By Horrible please update
    This book is written by a WOMAN...yet she nails it spot on. No bias, nothing. Spoken as if a male had written it. I'm very impressed, it was very informative, and I will use the links provided at the end of the book. (Thank you for providing them) I will be reading more of her books. Very well written. True talent.

    Without even reading the book, the title and the author says it all. Why is this book written by a woman and not a man? Because the man who would have, could have written it is "on strike"???
