    Parliamentary Petition

    Men and boys denied domestic abuse services. As the domestic abuse bill moves through its parliamentary process, while women’s agencies and individual survivors have been included in consultation men have been denied their equal rights. As the government followed their legal guidance and released a public announcement for groups, charities and individuals who had experienced or were supporting survivors of domestic abuse to be available for consultation, it then denied every single application from men. Seven women’s aid groups and individual female survivors gave evidence filmed by parliamentary TV that influenced how the government needed to deliver services to continue to support the hundreds of millions of pounds spent on female services. When reviewing or creating legislation, policy or the strategies that dictate who should receive services and funding the government has responsibility to ensure it includes all members of society who are affected by issues relating to the legislation. While current figures are showing one in three domestic abuse victims as being men, less than 1% of government and trustee managed funding goes to male services. The consistent neglect by the government in serving men and boys is being met by a growing movement within the UK and internationally. Split the Difference is a not for profit agency connecting countries while challenging the United Nations to actively hold governments to account. It is evident that through generations governments have systematically excluded men and boys from equal rights in having their voices heard and from being included in desperately needed services. Equality in services never hurt anyone, give them a chance to have a voice and their needs met. Please sign our UK petition.
  • London March For Men - 12/09/2020

    London March For Men – 12/09/2020

    Men and boys forced to bow down to female sexism in parliament On the 12th September 2020 in London, Split the Difference held the first of a series of marches raising awareness on the lack of equality in the UK for men and boys. While all areas of society continue to push women and girls forward, men and boys are becoming so marginalised that the UK is seeing a rise in suicide, domestic abuse, homelessness, education dropout and more. Split the Difference CEO Sally-Anne Burris says: ”Our research shows a massive difference in the experiences of men and boys when they present to services for help. “Any politician or civil servant who tells you equality is alive and guiding our services is delusional, sexist or just plain ignorant. “We have seen how men’s rights to equality are being actively blocked by extreme feminist forces within parliament. “Key areas like domestic abuse is a prime example, holding a portfolio of evidence showing that consultation of men in the shaping of services has been completely blocked.” While the domestic abuse bill enters its final stages within parliament Sally says: “As part of our researched we have watched hours of parliamentary TV, listened to witness statements from 7 women’s projects and individual female survivors. “We know that a number of men’s groups in the community and individual survivors completed the consultation application offering attendance, but none were accepted. “Currently 1 in 3 victims of domestic abuse are men, it is a direct attack on equality and human rights for the government to completely exclude male representation in the shaping of services. “Over three hundred million pound is spent on domestic abuse services in the UK, less than 1% of that is made available for men. “There is no place in democracy to exclude half the population from public services.”

    MRAdio Discussing The March Part 5

    In recent years the UK has seen the development of men’s support groups within the community, answering the needs of men and boys who are struggling in different areas of life. Men who have been unable to access support in areas like suicide, domestic abuse, education, mental health and well-being, are attempting to support each other by setting up groups that men or boys can access in the community. While some of these organisations have been active for over 10 years, across the country a network of support groups designed to attempt to assist men and boys in having safe spaces to connect with while they attempt to gain specialist support. Split the Difference has a target aim to raise awareness for men and boys and the lack of equality. MRAdio is a new organisation building followers on social media who invited our CEO to talk about what motivated split the difference to become a national and international campaign for men and boys. As an organisation Split the Difference has been created to bring voices together and raise awareness which includes demonstrations. Sally-Anne Burris as the lead talks about the success of the London march in September and the next event in Edinburgh on 12 December.

    Domestic Abuse Bill UK – More Info.

    Men refused the right to be consulted on the new Domestic Abuse Bill In the last year 786,000 men have experienced domestic abuse, but the UK government are continuingly excluding men from the right to be consulted and supported within the new domestic abuse Bill. Charities across the UK have repeatedly campaigned and shown their concerns over the lack of equality in the consultation process of the domestic abuse Bill. With the Domestic Abuse Bill coming to the final stages before it becomes law it is evident that the government has not followed his own directives in consulting with all members of society who will be affected by the new law. Gender equality within domestic abuse services has been seriously lacking for men and in some cases boys. There has been a long-standing history of consistently high numbers of men experiencing domestic abuse. Without men’s needs being included and supported while the consultation process in the UK is still active the UK government is continuing to open itself to be challenged on gender inequality and the UN directives for human rights.
