    NFL and Violence Against Women

    in Family

    Over the last couple of months the spotlight has been on the NFL to address the numerous past and current reports involving violence against women from NFL players.  While this is not a new conversation or dynamic, it has risen to a level that is demanding an immediate and appropriate response.  


    Recognizing that nearly 70% of the NFL players are Black and the face of this reoccurring violence is portrayed as representing the also disproportional intimate partner violence that is experience in the Black community over all, we will convene a discussion to address the role of the Black community and particularly Black women in helping to frame a culturally competent response from the NFL?  We will also discuss the Black community perception of  "whooping," our children and the need for this punishment?  


    Please join us and express your opinion.

    Avon Foundation Report on Violence against Women

    in Current Events

    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.  You can listen at any time by accessing the archived shows at that location, or call in live at 646-378-0430.

    The Violence Against Women Act: Legislative Scapegoating

    in Politics

    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.

    IS THIS WHAT WE CAN DO TO ELIMINATE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

    in Current Events

    IS THIS WHAT WE CAN DO TO ELIMINATE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?


    We are always asking ourselves what we can do to prevent or eliminate domestic violence (DV).  Could the Quincy Solution be the answer?


    It makes sense that ending DV requires a legal system that women can use readily to get help, and that takes full legal measures against abusers, right?  Seems reasonable, but for whatever reasons, it doesn’t often work that way.  The Quincy Solution comes from a 1987 study by a suburban Boston judicial district that actually researched what could help eliminate DV, and they based the Quincy Solution upon that research.  They found that in order to be effective against DV, the system had to empower victims and control abusers.  Easy to say, but how do we do that?


    Barry Goldstein, a nationally recognized domestic violence author, speaker and advocate will join us Saturday to talk about the Quincy Solution.  He has written several of the leading domestic violence books including Domestic Violence, Abuse and Child Custody co-edited with Dr. Mo Therese Hannah, Representing the Domestic Violence Survivor, co-authored with Elizabeth Liu and Scared to Leave Afraid to Stay.  His newest book is The Quincy Solution: Stop Domestic Violence and Save $500 Billion.


    Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about the Quincy Plan and domestic violence.

    WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE WITNESS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

    in Current Events

    You’ve probably wondered what to do if you know someone in a domestic violence situation.  What if you are confronted with domestic violence with a stranger or acquaintance?  What’s a bystander supposed to do in that situation?  Intercede? Yell at the abuser?  Offer to take the victim away? All those actions can be dangerous and ultimately not useful.  So what DO you do?


    Saturday’s guest is Barbara Paradiso, MPA, who has Paradiso has worked on behalf of victims of domestic and sexual violence and their children for more than thirty years as an advocate, administrator and activist.  She is the founder and Director of the Center on Domestic Violence at the School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver).  In that capacity, Ms. Paradiso is responsible for the development and maintenance of a groundbreaking Center for original research, service and graduate level educational programming - the first of its kind in the nation.


    So who better to talk with us about what to do as a bystander when we witness domestic violence?


    Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more bystander behavior and domestic violence.

    Domestic Violence against Women, "how coward boys react"

    in Family

    Living free from violence is a human right, yet millions of women and girls suffer disproportionately from violence both in peace and in war, at the hands of the state, in the home and community. Across the globe, women are beaten, raped, mutilated, and killed with impunity. Gender-based violence stems from the failure of governments and societies to recognize the human rights of women. It is rooted in a global culture of discrimination which denies women equal rights with men and which legitimizes the appropriation of women's bodies for individual gratification or political ends. Everyday, all over the world, women face gender-specific persecution including genital mutilation, sexual slavery, forced prostitution, and domestic violence. At least one out of every three women worldwide has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. 


    Violence against women feeds off discrimination and serves to reinforce it. When women are abused in custody, raped by armed forces as "spoils of war," or terrorized by violence in the home, unequal power relations between men and women are both manifested and enforced. Violence against women is compounded by discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnicity, sexual identity, social status, class, and age. Such multiple forms of discrimination further restrict women's choices, increase their vulnerability to violence, and make it even harder for women to obtain justice.


    States have the obligation to prevent, protect against, and punish violence against women whether perpetrated by private or public actors. States have a responsibility to uphold standards of due diligence and take steps to fulfill their responsibility to protect individuals from human rights abuses. Yet such violence is often ignored and rarely punished. Too often no one is held accountable for these crimes.
