WOMEN, PROTECTION ORDERS, AND THE REAL COSTS TO VICTIMS
You’ve experienced violence from your partner, and everyone is telling you to get a protection order. Sounds right. The legal aid representative tells you how to proceed, it might help, and it doesn’t cost anything. Or does it?
Two researchers looked at whether getting a protection order had any impact on women’s earnings, and their findings may be a shock. And those findings covered six years of women’s earnings. Free to get a protection order? Think again.
Melanie M. Hughes and Lisa D. Brush join us to look at their research and what it told them about women’s financial picture after getting a protection order. Hughes is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. She uses quantitative approaches to study women’s empowerment, often focusing on groups of women who are particularly marginalized. She is coauthor of Women, Politics, and Power: A Global Perspective (3rd Edition forthcoming with CQ Press). Her research has been published in journals such as American Sociological Review, American Political Science Review, and Social Forces.
Brush is Professor of Sociology and of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her first book was Gender and Governance (Rowman and Littlefield 2003), and her second book was Poverty, Battered Women, and Work in U.S. Public Policy (Oxford University Press 2011). Her current research looks at preventing adolescent relationship abuse and teen dating violence by engaging high school and middle school boys in coached athletic programs to change masculinities.

Women of Yesterday for Women of Today 29 August 2015
We women today need to understand what God's plan is for us in today's society. God is NOT difficult. We need to understand the women of the Bible, their trials and the understanding of the Virtuous Woman in Proverbs. God is real and we are his tangible testimonies. Let's prepare ourselves to live according to the scriptures of God's Holy Word.
The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together.
This is the backstory of The Frazer Center- The life of a young couple is often the stuff of dreams: the places they may live, the journeys they may take, the children they may have. In 1948, this was the story for one of our founding families, the Lanes.
Their lives took an unexpected turn, however, when their daughter was born with cerebral palsy. Together with their dear friends the Frazers, the Lanes searched for a program for their daughter. Feeling frustrated and saddened by what they saw, they created the Cerebral Palsy School for six children at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in 1949. Two years later, the Frazers and Lanes were able to acquire the former estate of Cator Woolford (founder of the Retail Credit Company, now Equifax), thirty-nine acres located in the heart of Druid Hills. Renamed REACH in 1989 and The Frazer Center in 1999, our historic mission to offer research-based education, vocational support, and therapeutic intervention to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families is still the heart of our work today.

"ReAddressing The Urgent Clarification of Women."
A discussion about gender, classifications for being a woman, and the aspects that the define the originals.
- from one woman's perspective.
This will be a debative topic, I am sure, as it will confront the lines that are drawn out there these days, and where we, women fall within them. I'll raise the question...
Where do we each ourselves see our selves as 'true' women these days... admist the misty, mysterious and musty camoflagues (and sometimes cartoonish displays) of womenhood?
Between Caitland and fakeland it is up for debate and...

*Due to the Last Show's Tech Issues and being cut short.....Let's try THIS again! Same topics (and More) REWIND!...sort of:
Howdy, folks. We're back after an understandable pre-emption due to last weekend's legendary Afropunk Festival held at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park. Check out our impressions of the event during the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse Mixtape airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. Join your hosts, Dburt, Daryll B and Capt. Kirk as they discuss the following issues: Dburt's thoughts on the escalation (and evolution) of the other Black experience commonly refered to as Afropunk; a St. Louis mother's empassioned rant critiquing the Black Lives Matter movement goes viral; futurist and entrepreneur, Elon Musk's vacuum travel project might be gaining more traction and viability; a belated hat tip to Shadow and Act for their highlighting of an upcoming film project about African American women who were NASA mathematicians during the Civil Rights era; and while films about Black genius are in development, memetic minstrelsy may get rewarded (again) with Straight Outta Compton garnering Oscar buzz (do they ever give awards that show AA communities in a good light?); DC's Vixen gets her animated closeup. And lastly, famed director, Steve McQueen with the assistance of Hollywood iconic actor/activist, Harry Belafonte may be gearing up to make a Paul Robeson biopic (Oscar, anyone?). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
In fact, because of this deep desire for peace, the ruling class leaders of this land, from 1945 on, stepped up the hysteria and propaganda to drive into American minds the false notion that danger threatened them from the East.-Paul Robeson
