Ben Atherton-Zeman returns to Men…Women…and Other Truths in this special broadcas to share his “life-altering” experience: A 23-day tour of India and Nepal, presenting stories, and comedic – yes, comedic - presentations on eliminating violence against women, and transforming centuries old beliefs.
But it wasn’t just what Ben was teaching that altered his life, it was the people, their stories and their courage to continue standing up in the face of heinous abuse. This is a journey you won’t want to miss!
Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men against Sexism (www.nomas.org), and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He visited India and Nepal on behalf of the U.S. State Department Speakers Bureau. He identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes that every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world, and in themselves.
Jeff Hendler hosts this special broadcast.
Over the last couple of months the spotlight has been on the NFL to address the numerous past and current reports involving violence against women from NFL players. While this is not a new conversation or dynamic, it has risen to a level that is demanding an immediate and appropriate response.
Recognizing that nearly 70% of the NFL players are Black and the face of this reoccurring violence is portrayed as representing the also disproportional intimate partner violence that is experience in the Black community over all, we will convene a discussion to address the role of the Black community and particularly Black women in helping to frame a culturally competent response from the NFL? We will also discuss the Black community perception of "whooping," our children and the need for this punishment?

We women are the weavers of the social fabric of life. Love is the bottom line of our lives. Relationship is of prime importance to us. Yet, in our tormented world we are cut off from this core value and suffer in our relationships with our mates, children, friends, and work colleagues. It is time to come together, drop our guard, reconnect in sacred sisterhood, acknowledge what we all share as common heritage as women and learn how to truly support ourselves and one another for our personal and planetary healing and transformation. By sharing our vulnerable truth and being witnessed by one another with compassion, empathy and care we can create the culture of love that is our birthright as women. Join Iris and Priya in intimate and open conversations about what we women face as we go through the unique portal after menopause into our sixties - the entrance into our wisdom years.

You’ve seen the ads- a bruised and bloodied woman looks plaintively at the camera. Or a movie star plays the role of a battered woman being degraded and beaten. Or even a picture of a cemetery and mourners. All the images and audio are designed to let the watcher understand the seriousness of domestic violence. The ads can be shocking, even gut-wrenching. But what do those ads really do to help victims of domestic violence? Is the image being conveyed effective in either educating the public, or helping the victims? All good questions, and one academic has done studies to find out.
Courtney Welton-Mitchell is the director of the Humanitarian Assistance Applied Research Group at the University of Denver. She earned her Ph.D. in Social Psychology in 2012, holds two M.A. degrees, in social psychology and mental health counseling, and is a licensed clinician
She will join us Saturday to talk about what her research showed when it comes to effective messages about DV. What is the message ads give about DV, what outcomes do the current approaches have, and is there a better way to educate, protect, and fund raise to help abused women?
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about violence advertising messages and effects.
