Book Launch for David Shackleton

Please join the Ottawa branch of the Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE) for their inaugural event on June 3rd, 2015. CAFE is an educational charity focused on the health and well being of boys, men, fathers and families.CAFE President David Shackleton will be launching his new book, The Hand That Rocks The World: An Inquiry into Truth, Power and Gender. David will also be selling copies of his book and this is your chance to get an autographed copy!David will be discussing why, and how, feminism has been so powerful in the world, all of which is done under a banner of powerlessness. Men and women enjoy different kinds of power, although one is acknowledged and the other ignored. Many people are completely unconscious of this power since it operates under a cover story of male power and female victimhood.

This will also be your chance to meet the executives of CAFE-Ottawa and to discuss our plans for the future of the organization here in Ottawa. We look forward to seeing you on June 3rd.

About CAFE

The Canadian Association for Equality is committed to achieving equality for all Canadians, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, family status, race, ethnicity, creed, age or disability.

In particular, we are interested in gender equality, that is on achieving equality for all men, women, girls and boys. While we support all efforts at achieving gender equality, we will work for balance and fairness within this societal project by focusing our limited resources on those areas of gender which are understudied in contemporary culture.

This has led us to a current focus on the status, health and well-being of boys and men, where attention, investment and support for educational and social programs stands at a level that is far from equal to the seriousness of the problem, while also being significantly underdeveloped compared to the resources in other important areas of social improvement.

We provide current evidence-based research and balanced information. We also provide opportunities to engage in furthering this cause by participating in discussions, events and family-friendly activities. We sincerely believe the goal of true equality and human rights is best served by conducting inclusive conversations based on facts and evidence, not by promoting ideology or special interest agendas.
