A neo-masculine online group - which believes women should be controlled by men - is instructing members to meet in centres around the world including New Zealand.

Meetings of the Return of Kings group are being held in 44 international locations on February 6, and Auckland, Wellington, and Dunedin are on the list.

American group leader Daryush "Roosh" Valizadeh, reportedly believes rape should be legalised on private property.

On the group's website, a list of beliefs includes a woman's value depends on her fertility and beauty, and their emancipation has destroyed the family unit.

Women and gay men are barred from attending the international meet up day, and if a "pretty girl" turns up and tries to get in, members are told to "get her number and then tell her to buzz off".

Mr Valizadeh posted on Twitter yesterday that he was headed to Australia - drawing the wrath of fellow Twitter users.

"To all attractive Australian girls in age range of 18-22. I'm coming to your country and am free to meet for drinks," he posted.

An online petition to stop the group meeting in Australia reached over 20,000 signatures overnight.
