Dr. Margaret Fulton's speech to the C-4 Conference: The Dominant Male Culture: Spinning Out of Control Dr. Margaret Fulton's speech was titled "The Dominant Male Culture: Spinning Out of Control". For over an hour Dr Fulton reviewed the traditional hierarchical structures and then proposed changes to those systems that would aid everyone and in particular, women. Doctor Fulton urged the audience to focus on the points of light, to take heart and not be discouraged by the seemingly overwhelming obstacles. The Confidence Competence and Community Cooperation Conference was held May 22-24, 1998 at Selkirk College Castlegar campus. The Conference opened on the Friday evening with a speech by Mary Woo Sims who was Chairperson of the BC Human Rights Commission at the time. Saturday morning workshops were followed by a speech by Dr. Margaret Fulton, Order of Canada recipient, ex Dean of Women at UBC and education consultant. Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning there were more workshops and then Audrey Moore, at the time, Chairperson of the Selkirk College Board, and former Mayor of Castlegar, gave the closing plenary speech. In 1998 women were earning 67% of what men earned. The need for more women to get involved in the decision making bodies of their communities was readily apparent. By-in-large, the 1998 stats illustrated the inequality of representation between women and men: members of municipal councils 253 women 962 men; members of the House of Commons 60 women 240 men; members of the BC Cabinet 7 women 12 men; members of the Supreme Court 2 women 7 men; members of BC agencies boards and commissions 1528 women 1891 men; chairpersons of those agencies, boards & commissions 173 women 342 men. by: 1998 2010 reflections on the c 4 conference jane burton http://www.kootenayfeminism.com/timel...
