Earl Silverman (1948-2013) was the founder of Men’s Alternative Safe House[w4m] (MASH) in Calgary, believed to be the only men's domestic violence shelter in Canada at the time.[1] In 2013, Silverman took his own life shortly after his efforts to keep MASH funded failed and he was forced to close its doors due to lack of funding.

Earl Silverman's Gravestone[3]

Earl Silverman came to Calgary, from Montreal by way of Miami, FL and Vancouver, B.C. in 1978. Earl's most notable accomplishment was his formation and development of the socially innovative "Family of Men" support society in 1999.[4]

Quote: «When I went into the community looking for some support services, I couldn't find any. There were a lot for women, and the only programs for men were for anger management. As a victim, I was re-victimized by having these services telling me that I wasn't a victim, but I was a perpetrator - Earl Silverman[5]

Earl Silverman says:

"In Canada, they're stuck with a Marxist gender model and that’s never going to change", explaining that the current system defines "male and female relationships where men are the bourgeois group with the power and women as the proletariat with no power." [5]

Earl Silverman's will directed that the funds from his estate should be dispersed so as to create an educational scholarship for male victims of female perpetrated domestic violence. Courts in Alberta directed that the funds should be dispersed to the Mount Royal University Foundation for this purpose.
