Mothers losing custody – United Nations Complaint

Safe Kids International

Claim Submitted Today to UN by The Women’s Coalition with Forms & Pictures from Women around the World: Human Rights Crisis

“On behalf of thousands of women, The Women’s Coalition, along with its sister organization, Safe Kids International, hereby submit this complaint detailing an international pattern of human rights violations being committed against women resulting in the loss of their children and/or inability to protect them from abusive fathers.

We are requesting the UN Commission on the Status of Women, UN Women and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon officially recognize the pervasive pattern of injustice and discriminatory practices detailed herein and appoint a committee to investigate, formulate policy, and develop strategies to end this prevalent discrimination against, and severe oppression of, women.


Now that women in developed countries are financially independent and can separate from and divorce men (and not be relegated to the streets or dead), they are, for the first time in written history, in the vulnerable position of losing their children to a man who decides he wants them—for whatever reason.

Unbeknownst to most women, the 1970’s women’s liberation movement did not liberate women completely. Men can, and too often do, use “their” children to maintain control over “their” women who have left them or have not lived up to their standards of a wife or partner. Women, who believe their rights and equality have already been fought for and won decades ago, are shocked, when, one by one, they are discredited, degraded, disempowered, and emotionally and financially devastated in the process of being stripped of their precious children.

There is a systematic and methodical pattern being implemented worldwide which accomplishes this theft of children from perfectly good mothers: poor investigations/evaluations by law enforcement, social services and/or family court professionals; biased opinions and recommendations given by court-appointed attorneys and psychologists; disregard or concealment of evidence the father is unfit, abusive or out for revenge or financial motives; false judicial findings that women are lying, alienating, mentally ill or emotionally abusive; the use of those findings to switch custody from a primary-caretaker mother to the father; silencing of mothers with threats of complete loss of their children and/or jail for bogus charges of “contempt”; silencing of children by sophisticated methods of psychological coercion carried out by court-appointed psychologists.

In the end, women are emotionally, physically, socially and financially devastated….”

  1. I think your losing focus on the issue which is Parental Alienation , its gender neutral isn’t it ? however with mothers getting custody 80 % + in all divorces then they are the majority of the abusers and fathers the minority and children the main victims of abusive mothers . I’m really disappointed you’ve turned this into man bad women good which you know is untrue .

    1. I cannot agree or dispute your statistics re: gender that receives custody of children most of the time, but, I would venture to say that these stats were widely used many years ago and are likely off but that is just my opinion. As far as gender issue, I just read quote of Barry Goldstein I would like to borrow in reply: “I am excited about my new article which is the first in a series of articles about the custody court bias to place children at risk. We know abusers claim their is a bias against men and there is substantial research about the bias against women, but I believe focusing on the bias that undermines children’s health and safety can change a conversation that is going badly.” Courts vs Kids | Stop Abuse Campaign, STOPABUSECAMPAIGN.COM

      i, personally, continue to advocate that which is best for the child and call out for unification between mothers and fathers, grandparents, educators, mental health professionals, and all members of society who find themselves in positions of helping children.

      The abrupt severing of a child from a loving and protective parent, and especially the child’s primary caregiver, mother or father, is a blatant act of abuse inflicted upon the child by the child’s other parent, surely no argument there. And the act of it is committed by a severely disturbed parent, and further, the act of covering it up or ignoring this on the part of “professionals” is a further violation and abusive act against the child, and, the severed parent.

      I continue to steer away from use of the term “alienation” as it was derived from Gardner’s theories and I wish to have absolutely nothing to do with Richard Gardner or any seed of any theory he formulated. Stockholmed, severing bonds, detachment, all are alternate, viable terms for what has been previously touted as “alientation” … it is, inarguably, blatant and horrific abuse inflicted upon a child and upon the child’s parent, extended families, loved ones. I hope we all continue to expose, research, offer aid to those who have suffered from the acts of this abuse.

      Again, I do not offer sole allegiance to mothers only as I am fully aware fathers have suffered from the actions of abusers, untrained or unethical court professionals, inept or dangerous mental health providers, and so on. I do, however, feel that much more unification among mothers and by mothers is necessary and overdue, in order that good and protective mothers become a force to reckon with, politically and publicly, and that mothers unite and support one anothers causes just as fathers have previously and herefofor accomplished in previous decades which fathers formed out of great oppression, discrimination and loss of basic human rights, all of which a great number of mothers are being disabused of today, and have been for many years past. It is my personal opinion that then, and only then, can mothers and fathers unite in order to restore family rights, protect children, prosecute abusers and expose, and cure the base corruption that is so prevalent in the divorce and custody industry.
