Women’s grants winners

By johnboy 28 June 2013 31

Joy Burch has announced the winners of this year’s Women’s Grants Program:

“Ensuring women and girls in the ACT reach their full potential and are able to fully contribute in our community is fundamental in creating an inclusive ACT,” Ms Burch said.

A project to support women who are involved in the building and construction industry, or looking to get into it, is among this year’s recipients.

“I am particularly excited about this project because there are wonderful opportunities for women to have very fulfilling and rewarding careers in the construction sector.

Ms Burch said it was pleasing to see such an innovative and diverse range of applications for this year’s grants round and that all successful projects would improve the status of women and girls in the ACT.

Other recipients include the Women’s Legal Centre, Domestic Violence Crisis Service, Canberra Rape Crisis, ACT Mental Health Foundation, YWCA of Canberra, ACT Shelter, ACT Women and Prisons Group, Toora Women and Women with Disability ACT.

There are numerous men only social services in the ACT.

Start with the Mens Centre:

http://www.menscentre.org.au/

That website won’t load for me. Must have a built-in testosterone sniffer or something…

Men only: No wimmin allowed! 🙂

LIke most mens programs its directed at blaming the man for the problems.

Anger management etc.

If you read any material on domestic violence for men, its how to stop your violence.

Its pathetic. Plenty of innocent kids are the victims of domestic violence by both genders. However the acts of one gender are ignored.

Truth is that both genders have the same mental flaws, its just that men are taught not to complain when a woman is beating them up and women are taught that everything is domestic violence.

I don’t see how offering any service to a single gender is a step towards equality, offer services to both genders and if 80% of the clients are women so be it. Not offering services to men is just wrong.

Its true.
A few weeks back my mrs and I were having a blue. It was loud so one of our neighbours must have called the police because about 5 cars showed up. It must have been a quiet day.
The police questioned us seperately. The male officer asked me if she will be pressing charges. I said what for? He said for domestic violence. I explained to him that my shirt being torn and the scratched on my face are from self defence and I was not instigating any violence. My wife was laying into me so much that the only way i could stop her was to lie on top of her on the ground. I am talking about full punches and kicking etc.
I was not asked once if i wanted to press charges. Makes me think I would have had a really good chance in court if things ever went that way.
Men are just expected to be immune to domestic violence, this was demonstrated by our fantastic AFP.

Gross.

I thought that was a gay club?

I’ve used some of the ‘Women’s services’ (one of the grant recipients too) and I must admit that I found that environment strangely comforting and it made a fairly big difference to my mental state at the time.

So to the men whingeing about not having the equivalent “Men only” services: get off your arses and lobby to get them. Or do you think the women’s services “just happened”.

Feminism; the desire for equality, (but with special treatment/services/status etc for women.)
