The International Conference on Men’s Issues (ICMI) is a series of annual conferences presented by AVfM, Justice For Men and Boys, and the Honey Badger Brigade dealing with social and legal issues that disproportionately affect men and boys.
This year’s conference is being held in the City of the Big Shoulders, Chicago Illinois, and features thought leaders from across the world.
Hosted by Honey Badger Brigade and scheduled for August 16 thru 18, the event will feature an international slate of speakers and panelists who will unpack the constellation of areas in law and culture where men and boys are at a disadvantage.
Since the first ICMI, held in St Clair Shores MI in 2014, the conference has sought to educate and generate public awareness of issues as diverse as fraudulent abuse of dowry and rape laws in India, to ideological witch hunts in British universities, to the treatment of veterans by family courts in the United States, to discrimination against boys in primary schools across the western world.
This year’s expanded program will also take on the broader topic of the social justice “culture wars,” which frequently overlap with men’s issues and which pose a significant threat to freedom of speech, academic freedom, and our hard-won and once treasured, but now apparently “inconvenient,” due process protections.
Honey Badger Brigade is a female-founded multimedia platform providing education, entertainment, commentary and critique on gender ideology and men’s issues via discussion of current events, pop and nerd culture, and mainstream media spin.
