    PDF Mothers on Trial Í Phyllis Chesler Amazes me that back in the 19th and early 20th century fathers were given custody of their children regardless of the mothers wellbeing Also fathers would take everything away from the mother

review ´ Mothers on Trial review à eBook or Kindle ePUB Ø Phyllis Chesler download Mothers on Trial Passionate and perceptive the highly praised Mothers on Trial is both an indictment o. Not since slavery in the USA were mothers punished by having their children taken away from them Yet in family courts all across America judges and uasi judicial officers of the court do just that children who are abused or molested by their fathers are removed from their primary care good mothers and are placed in the hands of their molesting fathers How this scandal can go on for decades with hardly any change without any public outcry and without any protest from human rights activists is due to the fact that outsiders to the gutter of our family courts justice simply refuse to believe it In her revised and updated milestone fact filled book Mothers on Trial Phyllis Chesler fights to save thousands of children from becoming yet another generation of victims of a court system that betrays them time and again She points out that while adult women often recount childhood sexual molestation at home by close relatives and these women s stories are believed people tend to disbelieve when actually facing such cases as they happen in real time right in front of them It is a documented fact that when fathers fight for custody 70% of the time they obtain full or partial custody People often assume that the reason these men who in most part have not been fully involved in their children s lives sometimes have been absent for months or even years now gain custody is because the mothers are unfit The naked truth is that in most of these cases the father is emotionally and verbally abusive or outright violent The mother often the product of an abusive home often abused for years in her marriage to the father of her children now faces battle for which she is woefully uneuipped to wage Distraught terrified isolated alienated in a system that scrutinizes her with the same critical and belittling attitude she s encountered in her private lives panicked over the fate of her sexually molested children she seems emotional unreasonable and difficult Her refusal to share parenting or give access to a man who sexually molest her children is viewed as her being rigid and uncooperative Further with limited or no financial resources she comes to court either unrepresented by an attorney or by an incompetent lawyer with little interest in the complexity of such a case Or as is often the case she does not have the funds to keep the protracted legal battle a high conflict custody case reuires Filing fees transcripts payments to evaluators and her lawyer s hourly rate uickly rise to thousands of dollars In the 1990s I stumbled upon the phenomenon of protective mothers losing these battles in drove researched it for a few years and finally published a novel about one such fictional mother in 2002 Puppet Child Since then I became an activist trying to find ways to save thousands of children each year from family court s justice What amazes me is how little has changed in the over decade in which I ve witnessed mothers enter the nightmare of family court where they are discredited disenfranchised and disbelieved Dr Chesler has been at it a lot longer Twenty five years ago she published Mothers on Trial a book that starts with the history of men s ownership of their families and the lingering feudal notion of male supremacy as the head of the household She pointed then and continues to do so now in this excellent revised edition that society and court hold men to much lower parenting standards than they do women Mothers fail at every single check list Does the divorced mother have sex Is she overwrought with anxiety Is she poor while men can be cold disinterested dysfunctional or even violent and they will be excused In fact fathers are given new chances time and again to foster their relationships with their children regardless of their abhorrent personal histories while mothers contact with their children are not only curtailed or cut down to expensive supervised visitations but all too often are severed completely If a father poisons a child s mind against the mother it does not enter into the uestion of his parenting skills But all too often a child s fear of an abusive father is regarded as the mother s brainwashing the child rather than the father s own doing A judge will then chastise the mother for not encouraging enough the relationship with the father and actually transfer custody to that abusive father The notion of the best interest of the child and how much the child stands to suffer from cutting the bond with the primary caretaking mother while shuttling into a new life with a man the child fears does not enter into the euation A chapter on Fathers Supremacist Movement reports that fathers rights groups have also gathered steam in recent decades and have organized themselves in ways that mothers have failed to do Some leaders in fathers groups have a recorded history of battering their wives or girlfriends or are convicted pedophiles Others may have a legitimate concern about shared parenting but have been expressing strong misogynistic opinions Common to both ends of the spectrum is the way fathers have been presenting themselves as persecuted victims They have been receiving media attention and courtroom sympathy with bogus theories foremost is Parental Alienation Syndrome that is used almost exclusively against mothers and have been successful in passing legislation due in part to Federal funding under the uncritical assumption that children need eual contact with both parents Mothers do not have access to eual Federal funding In this revised edition after editing out six chapters and adding eight while updating the available research Dr Chesler examines closely many such cases of outright injustice that defy anything people know and believe possible in our society Phyllis Chesler s book is a must read for every judge court evaluation guardian ad litem social worker psychologist and lawyer But importantly it should be read by anyone who cares about human rights or about children because it is time we raise our collective indignation to stop and reverse the life sentence without parole our courts inflict upon children placed in the hands of their molesters
