every where in the world.

That shouldn't be surprising.

Only a very small percentage of females can compete with men on a physical level.  There are thousands of jobs available to men due to this that females cannot do.  These jobs can pay really well.  But if you are female with no education - your earning potential is 60% that of a male counterpart.

I could not support my kids before I had an education.  We lived below the poverty level.  But their father, could make a decent living as a welder in a factory.  I choose to get an education where he did not.  He was already making enough money to live.

Is this an Australia thing?

The laws are pro female, Australia is classed as a feminist country

I am a little suspicious of this.  Kind of hard to believe.

If you are talking about custody cases, I'm not sure how it goes in australia, but here, shared parenting is now the norm.

This only came about because men collectively stood up and have taken more responsibility in the day to day care of their children.

When I divorced, it was pretty unheard of for the father to miss work and stay home with a sick child - or to take a child to the doctor.  Fathers wouldn't bring snacks into school or give their children a bath.

Today its different.  Fathers do all that stuff.  And because of that, laws have changed.

The laws and some government agencies are very pro female, an example is children are verbaled in court and dad goes to prision as a pedafile when in fact mum is the pedafile not dad. You gotta love the Child Protection Agency.
