Calgary Domestic Violence Committee

Membership List – September 2007

There are 20 seats at the CDVC table;

  • 1 representative from Older Persons
  • 1 representative from mental health
  • 1 representative from Aboriginal Communities
  • 1 representative from Faith Communities
  • 1 representative from women shelters
  • 1 representative from Research (?)
  • 2 representatives from Addictions
  • 2 representatives from Ethnocultural communities
  • 3 representatives from other domestic violence agencies
  • 3 representatives from law services
  • 2 representatives from GLBT Communities
  • 2 representatives from abusive men’s treatment

Consider this; while the GLBT national population, according to StatsCan, may be only 1.3% they are represented by 2 seats at CDVC table. Whereas men represent 49% of the national population and 7% of the male population (StatsCan 2005) in Alberta have been abused by their female partner in the past 5 years have no seats and no representation.

Male victims of female perpetrated domestic violence population in Alberta represent 5 times the total number of the total GLBT population, but have no seat at the table.

But male perpetrators of domestic violence, treatment, are represented by two seats.

The process is autocratic and not democratically expressive of the community diversity.

Can it be stated any clearer? NO MEN ALLOWED
