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.

We need to talk about false allegations.

Come to our historic conference on Restoring the Presumption of Innocence. August 31, in Rushcutters Bay, Sydney.

Learn the truth about how our justice system has been tilted to favour “victims”, denying accused men fair treatment under the law.
