|Become a Supporter
Thank you for your interest in becoming a supporter of Manhood Online. The site no longer needs your money, unless you are wanting to be very generous but it does need your participation.
Manhood Online's long term survival is dependent on the sites use by supporters. Supporters are users who make a contribution to the site by either posting to forums or keeping the site upto date with new details about the men's work that you know about.
Every bit that you can do to contribute makes a difference in giving the site a picture of men's work that's need in the world at the moment.
But, perhaps most important of all, by becoming a supporter you will join with us to foster men's better understanding of themselves and each other so they can direct their energies towards a better world. And in doing this, you will help shape a better world for our children.
If you would like to know anything more, please contact us by email or call Paul Whyte on 02-9879 4979. And in case you need further reassurance, here's a few words from Steve Biddulph seeking your support.

Every now and then in history, the human race shows a sudden surge of common sense! These upwellings seem to arise spontaneously, involve large numbers of people changing their opinions and behaviour, and are so-called “movements”. In 200 years we've had the anti-slavery movement, women's suffragette movement, the peace movement that ended the Vietnam War, and the green movement. All of these have somewhat improved our lives and our chances of survival.
The biggest problems facing us today centre around the MALE OF THE SPECIES. We males do the most damage, die earlier and have all kinds of trouble with health and well-being. We have a lot of trouble keeping our families intact, and giving our lives with any meaning beyond paying the mortgage.
In 1994 I wrote a book about this called Manhood. Manhood was a SOLUTIONS book, and it tackled all kinds of practical areas for men. Manhood became a cult book in Australia; after two years it is still selling around 3,000 copies a month, making it number 12 on the bestseller list. It has been the subject of more than 200 media interviews and has proved to be a significant and life-changing book for many men and women. I've lectured on Manhood to 30,000 people in nine countries, and it's starting to get through! There are now “men's movements” worldwide with a positive and mainstream following. It is beginning to bring changes in the corporate, political, and personal worlds. Now, we are going online, and we need your help…

then you can help promote the men's movements by supporting Manhood Online. This interactive website is a world first, an Australian project that will link positive programs in prisons, schools, for parents, workplaces, families, and men and women interested in positive development for MEN. Manhood Online has a team of 16 top specialists in their field, who are donating their time free of charge. It was integrated by HotHouse Interactive Productions, one of Australia's leading website design houses, and seeded by Microsoft to allow initial development. This work is now all done. Your help is needed to contribute to its continued success…
- helping men be better fathers;
- helping men stay married and in respectful and equal relationships with women;
