About the Author
Divorced in l957, and now happily re-married, Doyle was shocked by the anti-male prejudice pervasive throughout the court system. He formed the Men’s Rights Association (now Men’s Defense Association) in l972 and was a founding member of Men’s Equality Now (M.E.N.) International, an international coalition of similar organizations, in l977. For over 30 years, he edited and published The Liberator, foremost newspaper in the men’s movement. The National Coalition of Free Men NCFM awarded Doyle a plaque bearing this inscription: “With sincere gratitude for a lifetime of selfless service to the men’s and fathers’ rights movement…” “To Dick Doyle, who for years has been the backbone—& brain & muscle—of the Men’s Rights Movement… Dan Amneus” (This from Amneus’ autograph in Doyle’s copy of the Amneus book Back to Patriarchy). New York writer Max Freedman dubbed Doyle a “mensch,” a high honor among those of Jewish persuasion. Honorary Life Member in American Legion Post 225, Forest Lake, Minnesota.
