Women around the world are being brutalized in the name of "culture." Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation seeks to end all practices that violate women - that includes domestic violence, sex trafficking, rape and female genital mutilation. Education and economic empowerment will enable women to eradicate the culture of violence against women. Many women unknowingly perpetuate such a culture, out of wrong beliefs that they have no choice but to submit to cruelty. Today's guest, Angela Peabody, head of Global Woman PEACE Foundation, will discuss the organization's work in empowering women worldwide. As we look ahead to the year 2020, the 100th year of the 19th Amendment that gave U.S. women the right to vote, we look at how women can use their collective power to organize globally to end war and violence everywhere.
By now you have heard that Spike Lee's controversial film about Chicago gun violence, "Chiraq" is a take off from the old Greek play "Lysistrata" in which the women unite to withhold sex from the men until they agree to a truce and end the war. A special premier of the film is scheduled for the Chicago Theater this Sunday at 7pm. Today's guests, some of whom participated in the filming of Chiraq here in Chicago, will look at the film's message - women who unite to withhold sex from their gangbanging men to stop the killing on Chicago's streets. With all of the latest tragic shootings, taking the lives of innocent young people, is this a strategy women ought to consider? City officials have accused Spike Lee of making light of the situation with his film, but what do film participants think? What do you think of the idea? Could women stop violence with a sex boycott?

This show continues our purpose to bring awareness to the ever growing epidemic of domestic violence in our country and around the world.
Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.
Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

There's been a push for years to have doctors, nurses, and health care folks to become more involved in screening and treating victims of intimate partner violence.

But what are we really doing, is this the appropriate response, and what can we do better?

This program will focus on the often overlooked cases of police brutality again African American women. We will discuss what the larger underlining motivation and politics of such violence is and its derivation of chattel slavery and the middle passage where women of color were often beaten, raped and forced into miscarriage, sometimes in the presence of their husbands and children. This was done and is clearly still being done to demoralize all African Americans and destroy the culture and family of people of African descent.
