My son’s life was destroyed by false accusations

Mothers of Sons is a group of ordinary women whose sons have faced extraordinary ordeals in our unjust, anti-male legal systems and workplaces.

MOS offers advice and support for other mothers and fights for fair treatment for all.

Mothers of Sons is launching a new campaign – to stop the shaming of boys in schools.


Shaming boys has been in the news with two Victorian schools exposed for making boys apologize for being male. Many people seemed shocked this is happening yet school programs presenting males as toxic, violent and dangerous are commonplace, and part of the curriculum in many states. 

Mothers of Sons is calling for parents concerned about their boys being exposed to this material. Many parents are afraid of speaking out for fear your boys might be targeted.

That’s where MOS comes in. Use the form below to contact our school campaign team and make a report. We’ll help you put together evidence of the shaming and present that to local media. You can remain totally anonymous. 

Print off the flyer to put up on community noticeboards or hand out at kids’ sports events.

My son lost his reputation and access to his child when his wife was trained by domestic violence workers to make false allegations of violence and child sexual abuse.

As a grandmother, I was shocked to discover that AVOs are being used as an effective tool by some mothers to push fathers and grandparents out children's lives.

When the rape accusations against my 18 year-old son Toby fell apart in court and he was found not guilty, there were tears in the eyes of female jurists.

Finally. It took seven years for our son to convince the Family Court that his children were at risk from their mentally-ill mother who’d threatened to kill them.

They don't speak for me.
