NCFM Vice President Marc Angelucci invited guest speaker about domestic violence at El Camino College

March 25, 2013

2012 FTF Marc

On 3/25/13, NCFM’s Vice President, Marc Angelucci, was an invited guest speaker before a Sociology class of about 30-40 students at El Camino Community College near Redondo Beach, California.  The Professor had invited Angelucci to speak about male victims of domestic violence and particularly NCFM’s legal victory in Woods v. Horton (2008) 167 Cal.App.4th 648, which held it is unconstitutional to exclude male victims the statutory funding provisions or from state-funded services.  Before the lecture the Professor displayed a PowerPoint image of NCFM’s street rally against Verizon’s anti-father domestic violence ad.  The presentation lasted about 40 minutes.  Angelucci began by talking about NCFM and how he got involved as a laws student back in 1998.  Then he discussed the events that led up to the Woods case, including the discrimination against male victims and their children in state-funded DV programs, how the late Patricia Overberg, director of Valley Oasis shelter in Lancaster, was mistreated by other shelters for helping battered men, the statistics, and how the issue has been neglected.  He then talked about the plaintiffs in the Woods case, the steps involve in the lawsuit, and the ultimate victory.  He then discussed the aftermath, such as the media coverage, as well as the post Woods activism taking place today in an effort to enforce Woods.  The students were very receptive and asked good questions.  Angelucci left his email address on the board for anyone to contact him.  The Professor sent a thank you email and called it a wonderful presentation.

    When I attended El Camino College in 1975-78 we had a feminist attorney guest speaker lecturing our Poly Sci class on how veteran’s preference points were “unfair to women” – this to a class with DRAFTED Vietnam combat veterans! I remember timidly raising my hand and asking “What about me? I’m a woman…and a Veteran.” The feminist Attorney speaker smiled triumphantly at me and snorted “Everyone knows women join the military just to find a husband”. That was the day feminism and I went our separate ways. I’m glad to see El Camino College supporting men’s rights after all these years. El Camino was where I was taught The Rule Of Thumb and The World Would Be A Better Place If Women Ran It, while marveling at all the middle aged female professors imbued with campus rape hysterics.

    Bravo !!! That’s it Harry ! That’s it ,we have to take one state at the time . One country at the time. It will take time but its ok . Men’s rights are still a big taboo everywhere. Not just in US. Just the other day ,one of my foremen’s was shooing his mouth about ‘ Be a man ! Work like a man ‘ ?! He was lecturing one of my young co workers. And I corrected him . In a nice way . Only me . He is a old school . Stupid .
