Men's Rights focuses on specific issues, such as bias in family courts regarding child custody and paternity, domestic violence where often men take the sole blame, boy's declining performance in education, elevated male suicide rates. Men's problems are taken less seriously. Feminist ideology promotes the idea that we live in a patriarchy, where men are a privileged group, women are oppressed and men are the oppressors. In general, the concept of patriarchy is not disputed by MRAs. However, they would say that patriarchy developed from the allocation of gender roles and not vice versa. It was not a deliberate attempt by men to control women. Nonetheless, it is evident that the upper strata of society is still male dominated. Men still lead in business and politics. The greatest social changes have taken place in the middle and lower rungs. But it's difficult to argue that men are a privileged group when they make up only 38% of all university graduates.
I had to watch it two or three times.There is so much material and there was a difficulty in grasping opinions that seemed to be at odds with our basic assumptions. Cassie Jaye has given us much to consider.
In the fall of 2016, once The Red Pill movie itself was released for its initial viewings, some leading entertainment newspapers and reviewers published articles which misrepresented the movie and the film-maker. Based on these false reviews, people who hadn't seen the film protested it and shut down some screenings by threatening venues where the film had been scheduled to be shown. These protesters falsely claimed that the film promoted rape culture and would harm women!. Despite the bad press and protests, the film and the film-makers won numerous awards at several film festivals.
In March of 2017 The Red Pill movie became available for public purchase and, amazingly, its sales soared. It became a best-selling documentary, it was very highly rated by the vast majority of its purchasers, and Amazon.com labelled it "Amazon's Choice". Clearly the movie struck a nerve.
Based on interviews, as well as independent research which the director, Cassie Jaye, cites in the movie, The Red Pill presents a number of issues which uniquely, or overwhelmingly, affect boys and men. While some men had tried to bring these issues to public attention in the past, they had been largely ignored, dismissed or silenced. Given the climate of gender politics these days, perhaps this is a movie that only a woman (and a feminist at that) could have made.
I believe that The Red Pill movie has created an opening for a long-needed dialogue. It is thought-provoking, and is a movie that everyone should see.
I really hope Cassie and others like her create more products like this... A MUST WATCH!!!
Technically the documentary follows a good narrative. I would have liked to see more feminist-side interviews since they are so easily refuted.

This isn't a movie about sides. This is a movie about humanity. It's about working together toward a better tomorrow.
I was annoyed that she held the answer to why Elam wrote his abusive article on women until the end of the documentary. It was apparently written as a satirical response to a woman's article where she interviewed female co-workers and discovered many of them hit their male partners and felt they deserved it or thought it was funny. She had done this after seeing the statistic that 70% of non-reciprocal violence was caused by women.
I'd recommend watching some her post documentary videos for some clarification and to hear her perception of the response.
Cassie Jaye, you are incredibly brave, and yes....your bravery will get you hurt financially and socially at the very least. But, you have stood up for the oppressed, downtrodden, sacrificed and abused. We are eternally thankful. Thank you God that Cassie Jaye was brave enough to make this movie for those who are verbally abused, physically abused, and oppressed.
I will have your DVD in my pocket the next time I go to visit my mother's friends who claim all men are evil. They thought the Woman's March was a good thing, but can't seem to explain to me why the Woman's March didn't march to shut down the Oscars over Hollywood sexual abuse scandals, or against the DNC for Bill Clinton's sexual abuse scandals.
I will ask if we can watch The Red Pill together, or can they admit that they are speaking only for one side, and are willingly blind.
Thank you for making a wonderfully informative and effective movie.
I found her presentation to be unassuming, unbiased, open, honest, thoughtful, heartfelt and warmly engaging - intelligent. This is someone I wish I could have been on a Navy pho-jo assignment with - I’d have learned to be more natural with my questioning - Jaye is so real. (I’m gushing... tut-tut.) Anyhow, after watching the movie this afternoon, I find myself overwhelmed with appreciation for the massive effort and accomplishment she has made in producing such a polished, yet humbly powerful expose of certain truths that our society and legislators willingly allow to be dismissed and downright suppressed. Watch it only if you have an honest mind and a desire to understand. 5 out of 5 stars!
