Gender-based violence effects more women than men though men are also sadly at the receiving end of this. We are here on the planet as a human race. Both men and women are in this together and we wont make a dent in finding a way to move away from violence. Today we are speaking to the marvelous and relentless Ben Atherton-Zeman and Joe Samalin of Breakthrough.
Both using creative means to influence and educate people to stop discrimination and violence against women and girls.
We are so fortunate to have them both on the show not long after they have just been at a conference in New Delhi all about how to get men involved.

Join the Gentle World Cafe in understanding what Gender-Based Violence really is.
Empowerment and Effects of Gender Based Violence: How to address this growing pandemic. Gender-based violence (GBV) is a violation of human rights and a form of discrimination. It is defined as violence that is directed against a person on the basis of gender. Gender-based violence reflects and reinforces inequalities between men and women.
Gender-based violence and violence against women are often used interchangeably as most gender-based violence is inflicted by men on women and girls.

Truth In Reality has created a signature event entitled “#99Seconds” that is an event that honors the experiences of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The event is named #99Seconds because every 90 seconds a woman is sexually assaulted in the U.S. and every 9 seconds a woman is battered. By combining these two statistics we are promoting the little known fact that in the United States a woman is a victim of gender-based violence every 99 seconds.
#99Seconds aims to break the silence on gender-based violence and to directly tie in how domestic violence and sexual violence are normalized through modern entertainment. #99Seconds gives survivors a space to publicly reframe their experience, moving from victim to survivor and using the event as an opportunity for them to begin Redefining HERstory for themselves. (Please note that male survivors are open to participate and share their stories as well.)
