Errin Pizzey is a giant because she opend the first refuges in the UK. THese refuges were places where women who had experienced domestic violence could move to with their children. She is a contoversial figure to feminists but she did a whole load of good.
Now when you realise that the refuges do not allow any men in then you will realise she is part of the movement against male violence or was at the time. The entire issue of feminism for her was immaterial to me simply because she highlighted male violence against women.
Perhaps this trumps your arguement
"I don't think anybody foresaw that what a freedom of choice would do is imprison many."
she was constantly in court for helping women to take their children abroad and evading custody rulings
Misandry (pronounced /mɪˈsændri/) is hatred (or contempt) of men or boys. Misandry comes from Greek misos (μῖσος, "hatred") and anēr, andros (ἀνήρ, gen. ἀνδρός; "man"). It is not to be confused with the term misogyny, the hatred of women or girls. Misandry is also comparable with (but not the same as) misanthropy, which is the hatred of humanity in general. The prefix miso- (meaning "hate") applies in many other words, such as misocapny, misogamy, misarchy, and misoxeny. Misandry is the antonym of philandry, the fondness towards men, love, or admiration of them.

Wouldn't this be more appropriate?
Billy Joel - She's Always A Woman To Me
So provocative (not really)! Feminists hate this song because it's a man talking about a woman... how dare he!
