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.

The act provides some $660 million in funding over five years for programs ranging from protecting victims of domestic violence and community violence prevention to legal aid for survivors of violence. With the fiscal cliff looming, congress seeks drastic cuts to the program. This would prove detrimental to African American families, as African Americans are 3x likely to suffer domestic abuse, depression, and other mental illnesses related to violence against women. This episode we'll explore..Congress' dirty little secret to avoid taxing the rich, as well as take a look at how mental illness/violence is impacting our community, and it's political connotations.
If you’ve ever experienced family court, you know how wrenching it can be. In difficult cases it’s hard to find a lawyer to tackle the issues, and if you’re broke, good luck getting legal advice. In the brotherhood/sisterhood of lawyers, one particular woman stands out – REALLY stands out. Elizabeth Kates has practice law for 34 years with impressive qualifications like a J.D. and LLM degrees from University of Florida, plus psychology training. She has practiced in the areas of finance, taxation and gender issues affecting women in the IRS and other federal laws. But she is so much more.
Liz founded lizlibrary.org to focus on women’s issues and history, which is probably the most comprehensive site about divorce, custody, news, and so much more. She believes that there is an abrogation of the rule of law in family law that has led to more and more problems for women in divorce and child custody, even as the changes in the laws in other areas have purported to equalize women's rights.
And to top it off, Liz is outspoken and controversial even among her peers. One lawyer wrote on his website that people should “stay away” from her as an attorney. She can be just as fierce in her opinions as she can be supportive of the issues she supports.

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.

"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?
