The Infectious Myth - Justin Trottier, Do Men Need More Support? - 12.05.17
David interviews Justin Trottier of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CAFE), about support for men, most controversially for men who are victims of domestic violence, either at the hands of a woman, or a gay male partner. There are many shelters for abused women but, in Toronto, there is not yet a shelter for men (let alone their children), but that is about to change if Justin’s organization is successful in their fundraising. Although some women’s organizations have been very negative about this work, others are quietly working with his organization, recognizing that sometimes men need support for what have traditionally been seen as women’s problems.
