The film Red Pill, which follows a feminist’s journey researching the men’s rights movement, was screened by the Canadian Association for Equality in Calgary recently.
The men in this movement are often accused of promoting violence, being misogynists and promoting hatred of women so the film is an eye opening story of a group that has been unnecessarily demonized by the feminist movement.
While I was there, I took the opportunity to ask fellow movie goers why they wanted to see the film, what they expected from it and if they think equality exists between men and women.
Watch my video for their reactions!
When it comes to equality, a lot of emphasis has been put on females and not enough on men and there’s a conversation to be had regarding the effects this has had.
For example, men have high suicide rates, higher rates of death from work accidents and courts do tend to favour females when it comes to parental rights.
The Red Pill addresses these issues and much more and I think it has the potential to change that conversation for those with an open mind.
CAFE is hosting more screenings of the film in the near future and you can keep an eye on their website at www.equalitycanada.com for new details.
