Under both “patriarchal” and feminist cultures, the presumption of equal custody has never existed. Tom James examines the historical records.

For single dads receiving visits from their kids on limited occasions only, the leftover evidence from the visit becomes a special reminder – the unfinished drink on the table, the toy they were playing with in the garden, a dirty handprint on the wall, the indents in their pillows…. these are sacred keepsakes to be cherished until the next visit.
The social problem called “parental child abduction” began to get a great deal of media attention beginning in the 1980s.

Philip Chain is the earliest known example of a father who used picketing to attract attention to his plight as a parent who had been denied access to his child by a malicious mother.

Gonzo Historian, Robert St. Estephe has returned with a story that will seem very familiar to many fathers today. In 1936 William H. W.
