    LeadersatPlay Examine Sexual and Domestic Violence in the Media

    in Education

    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.)

    Ever heard of “partying with consent?”  If you hang around a college campus, that’s the buzz phrase that means you don’t have sex without permission. Sounds easy, right?  But some people (like rapists) just aren’t getting it.  What’s the deal?

    Jonathan Kalin, founder of “Party with Consent,” started the movement to help end sexual assault on college campuses and health masculinities.  He admits that most of the efforts to help curb campus rape has led to confusion and a lot of frustration, and he’s identified three barriers to solving that problem. The idea that sexual assault is simply the result of miscommunication; the fact that there is a real communication problem surrounding sexual consent; and the contradiction of athletics.

    Jonathan travels the US to promote and explain the philosophy behind the Party with Consent movement.

    There’s no denying there is a serious sexual assault issue on campuses. Even the president launched a major campaign last fall to address the problems. So does Jonathan have the answers?

    Tune in Saturday at 11 am Pacific time to hear what he has to say and to ask questions about the problem and what some people are doing about it.

    Call-in with your comments to (646) 378-0430.

    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.

    Carolyn Scott Brown, M.A., is the Director of Learning and Resources for FaithTrust Institute in Seattle. She helps faith and community organizations develop a combination of resources and training services to help prevent and intervene for domestic & sexual violence, child abuse, teen dating violence and ministerial misconduct. And she does it from a faith-based perspective. Scott-Brown, author, psychologist, and consultant, has an undergraduate degree from Brown University and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University. She is the author of The Black Woman’s Guide to Menopause: Doing Menopause with Heart and Soul. She joins us July 5th to talk about how faith and religion can be compatible with helping abused women stay safe.
