Statement Against Misogyny and Gendered Violence

__________________________________________

We, members of the Dalhousie University community, offer this public statement in response to recent reports of acts of misogyny and gendered violence by student members of the “Class of DDS 2015 Gentlemen” on Facebook and other offensive behaviour that has occurred at Dalhousie that contributes to a culture of gendered violence and discrimination.

First, we acknowledge that there is a problem of sexualized violence on Dalhousie campuses, on other university campuses in our province and across our country. It is important to name and own this culture of sexualized violence, only then can we address it effectively.

Second, we apologize for our failure in the past to respond effectively to the problem of sexualized violence on university campuses. For instance, when reports of sexualized violence emerged two years ago at Saint Mary’s University, UBC, and the University of Ottawa, we failed to stand up and demand action on our campus to address our culture of sexualized violence. We allowed events on other campuses to be perceived as someone else’s problem when it was our problem as well.

Third, we commit ourselves to the work required to make our campuses safe and supportive learning environments for women and members of other vulnerable groups. We also commit ourselves to ensuring that the Faculty of Dentistry (and all of our professional schools and academic units) deserve the public trust that has been placed in them as educators of individuals who, upon graduation, will hold professional positions of power and trust in society.

Fourth, we call for an integrated approach to the problem of sexualized violence on our campuses – an approach that (i) responds to the specific harms caused by incidents that have recently been reported that reflect a pervasive culture of misogyny and disrespect for women and sexual minorities and (ii) addresses the underlying systemic causes.

The response to the specific harms must include steps to ensure:

  • first and foremost, the safety and success of the female students currently in Fourth Year in the Faculty of Dentistry
  • the safety and success of all other students in the Faculty of Dentistry (including dental hygiene students) and the rest of Dalhousie
  • the safety and comfort of patients in the Faculty of Dentistry Clinic, many of whom are members of vulnerable groups
  • the safety of possible future patients of students found to have violated any of the following policies: Dalhousie University Sexual Harassment Policy; Dalhousie University Code of Student Conduct; Dalhousie University Faculty of Dentistry Student Code of Professional Conduct; all relevant professional Codes of Ethics; and The Competencies for a Beginning Dental Practitioner in Canada (if ever they are licensed)

The response to the systemic causes of sexualized violence must include the appointment of an Independent Committee of Inquiry composed entirely of external members to investigate, to consult with all relevant stakeholders, to issue a public report, and to make recommendations to all appropriate institutions and organizations. Only in this way might we be able to ensure the safety and success of students, faculty and staff, and begin to regain public trust in the Faculty of Dentistry and Dalhousie University.

We call on members of the Dalhousie community to join us in the project of working to create a safe and respectful learning environment for all students, and to earn back the public trust with respect to the training of future professionals.

You can do this by emailing DalhousieStatement@gmail.com and providing your name and Dalhousie affiliation. Names will be added to the list below, unless otherwise indicated in your email. 

Thank you to all who have endorsed the Statement. We are no longer accepting signatures.
