SORT BY Relevancy
About 60% of Americans know someone who has been the victim of domestic violence or sexual assault, but only about 15% have ever had a discussion about it with friends, according to a new study by the Avon Foundation. Why the big gap? Are people afraid to discuss the topic? Is it still a shameful secret like it was 50 years ago? More than half those surveyed who experience assault said they didn't get help from anyone they told about their victimization, but nearly 75% of the people surveyed said they would give a hand to a victim they knew. So do people lie on surveys? Maybe. But maybe they just don't realize how to recognize or help those who are victimized. Join us when Merril Cousins, executive director of King County Coalition against Domestic Violence in Seattle, WA, as we discuss the Avon report, Saturday, 11 am, at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/3women3ways.

Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago over the July 4th weekend. Fourteen of those people died. Most of the victims were Black and Latino men.
Dr. Roger A. Mitchell has made it his personal crusade to put an end to the senseless violence that consumes far too many sons and brothers, daughters and sisters, and that lays waste to entire communities. Named by Mayor Vincent Gray in Washington, DC as Chief Medical Examiner earlier this year after a stint as Regional Medical Examiner in New Jersey, Dr. Mitchell is breathing life into his unique profession of forensic pathology by sharing vital information with communities and invigorating a movement that had lost its focus. He talks to us about his heavy charge as Chief Medical Examiner, about his mission to save Black lives, and about his forthcoming memoir, The Price of Freedom: A Son's Journey.

From the days of your fathers you have TURNED ASIDE FROM MY STATUTES (Commandments of God not man) and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you," says the LORD of hosts. (Yeshua Elohim)
'I (Yeshua Melech) will set My face against you so that you will be STRUCK DOWN before your enemies.Those who hate you WILL RULE OVER YOU, AND YOU WILL FLEE when no one is pursuing you.
"Moreover, I will deliver the Egyptians (The world) into the hand of a cruel master, (AntiChrist) And a mighty king will rule over them," declares the Lord GOD of hosts.
Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to TAKE PEACE FROM THE EARTH AND TO MAKE PEOPLE KILL EACH OTHER. To him was given a LARGE SWORD. (Prophetic symbol of WAR)
And there shall be SIGNS UPON THE EARTH; DISTRESS OF NATIONS WITH PERPLEXITY.
TERROR (Terrorism) will seize them, PAIN and ANGUISH will grip them. They will writhe like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame.
People will faint from TERROR, apprehensive of what is coming on the world.
And if a KINGDOM be divided against itself, that KINGDOM cannot stand.
For ALL THESE THINGS must come to pass, BUT THE END IS NOT YET. (end of this church age)

DO RELIGIONS HELP OR HINDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS?
Popular televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a child who wrote in asking what to do when his father waves a gun around the mother when they fight. With all apparent concern and sincerity, the TV preacher told the child, “you don’t want to get your father busted,” and that instead of calling the police, the child should tell his mother to tell the father to get help. Huh?? This man clearly has no business giving out advice about domestic violence when he so clearly has no grasp of what it is nor how to handle it. Unfortunately, the young listener isn’t the only one who is getting dicey and dangerous advice about DV.
So is Robertson typical of the religious stance on domestic violence? Are women being given advice by their clergy that is wrong, harmful, lacking in understanding of what DV is? Unfortunately, some women are. The good news is that some clergy have the knowledge, understanding and common sense to really help in these situations.

The news article covers the latest woman murdered by her husband, and quotes a neighbor saying, “I can’t believe it, he was such a nice guy!” The TV reporter leers happily at the woman wearing a swimsuit while doing a story about a swimming pool. Beauty pageants…er, make that “scholarship pageants,” hang onto the bikini competition while pretending to ask each candidate a tough, intellectual question. How many headlines have screamed, “Grandfather elected to city council,” when the headline about a woman announcing she is a grandmother precedes all other information about her accomplishments? And how can we forget the scantily clad Paris Hilton slithering around the top of a luxury car and being sprayed into her ecstatic face with spouting water, all to sell a hamburger?
We are surrounded by media messages regardless of how they portray women, and how does that affect us?

Life's Issues with Lloyd Rosen with Special Guest Regina Rowley
Regina Rowley began taking Tae-kwon-do years ago with my son. Although he discontinued, I found the demanding mental and physical exercise highly beneficial and continued. Spring 2008 afforded me the opportunity to achieve my Black Belt. While researching self defense programs I came across several including Hikuta and have high regards for it. Krav Maga, the official self-defense and fighting system of the Israeli Defense Forces is the foundation for Commando Krav Maga. Smartsafe, aka: Women’s Commando Krav Maga, is the program I have chosen to teach, receiving my first certification in NYC March 2010.
It is my dream to change the violent statistics against women. I move closer to this each time I teach and speak. I love to speak to women’s groups on Awareness, Prevention, Empowerment, and Women’s Self Defense. Together, we will make a positive difference in the lives of women every where; one woman at a time.
“Oh that every woman knew how to defend herself and would!”

"Gender-based violence" it's been called. Basically it means beating up women. Misusing women. Oppressing women. It's a global problem and every race of people has been guilty of it. As the world expresses outrage at yet another kidnapping of girls in Nigeria by the group Boko Haram, group members brag that they have "converted" the girls to Islam. There is nothing Divine or God inspired about misusing females, yet every religion has teachings that have been misconstrued to condone it. Why is this such a crisis among human beings? Women raise sons, why are they not able to raise their boys to treat women with dignity and respect? What kind of men are they choosing to father their sons, are they choosing men who set a bad example? Bad behavior is not genetic, it is learned in ones own culture and society. When do boys learn to be violent against women? How do we break the cycle and change this culture of contempt for women?
Today we are going to talk about domestic violence and how dangerous they can be. Many women and men are victims of domestic violence or intimate partner violence everyday. Over this past weekend a popular youtube fashion blogger was murdered allegedly by her ex boyfriend. She finally moved away from him in hopes of starting a new life and was sadly found by him and gunned down, despite having a restraining order. This stuff has to end. So call in and give your thoughts.
