Dads dance for divorce rights

Dancers lead fight for fathers' rightsBailey, a member of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, was living in Mt. Pleasant when his ex-girlfriend moved the children to Canada with the court's permission, according to his aunt, Maren Bailey.

Members of the group use the traditional dances to bring attention to their cause, which asserts that mothers get preference over fathers in too many divorce situations.

What Thomas, the Baileys and others want people to be aware of is the alleged "inequality" in rights between mothers and fathers.

Derek Bailey founded Dance4Equality to promote advocacy for awareness and change.
