This Week On â€˜Global Currents’â€¦
â€œDads Who Fought Backâ€
Saturday, October 14th at 7 p.m. ET/PT (60 mins.)
DADS WHO FOUGHT BACK profiles a wide range of issuesâ€¦.from the emotional child custody battles of two desperate fathers facing a system they feel has developed a deep gender bias against men, to the progress of activist groups including â€œFathers for Justiceâ€ using guerrilla-like tactics to draw attention to this widespread problem. Along with a startling examination of the Canadian family court system, the documentary provides perspective from both its supporters, and those calling for a change to current divorce laws governing paternal access.
