SORT BY Relevancy
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?

Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago over the July 4th weekend. Fourteen of those people died. Most of the victims were Black and Latino men.
Dr. Roger A. Mitchell has made it his personal crusade to put an end to the senseless violence that consumes far too many sons and brothers, daughters and sisters, and that lays waste to entire communities. Named by Mayor Vincent Gray in Washington, DC as Chief Medical Examiner earlier this year after a stint as Regional Medical Examiner in New Jersey, Dr. Mitchell is breathing life into his unique profession of forensic pathology by sharing vital information with communities and invigorating a movement that had lost its focus. He talks to us about his heavy charge as Chief Medical Examiner, about his mission to save Black lives, and about his forthcoming memoir, The Price of Freedom: A Son's Journey.

Ben Atherton-Zeman returns to Men…Women…and Other Truths in this special broadcas to share his “life-altering” experience: A 23-day tour of India and Nepal, presenting stories, and comedic – yes, comedic - presentations on eliminating violence against women, and transforming centuries old beliefs.
But it wasn’t just what Ben was teaching that altered his life, it was the people, their stories and their courage to continue standing up in the face of heinous abuse. This is a journey you won’t want to miss!
Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men against Sexism (www.nomas.org), and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He visited India and Nepal on behalf of the U.S. State Department Speakers Bureau. He identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes that every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world, and in themselves.

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.

While we have clear data on murders from gun violence, no one seems to know how many Americans are shot – and survive – every year. In fact, the government’s own numbers seem to conflict on the matter.
How can this be? And why has no one tried to resolve the difference?
Lois Beckett explains that doctors and researchers have been pushing for clear numbers on gun injuries since 1989. “But what’s happened over that time is the politics of gun research, the politics of guns in America, are so divided and so fierce that even the effort to count the number of people injured by guns is incredibly political,” she says.
Welcome to Women Making Sense of Sex (and everything else) at 60! In this episode, join my co-host Iris Bieri and in a lively conversation about the changes that we women face after menopause and as we enter into our 60's. What makes this time unique for us?
Our bodies are changing radically and we are no longer oriented towards having children and being in relationship. We are also facing the loss of our roles as mothers, sexual partners (for some of us) wives, and for some of us we are facing retirement and or the loss of our careers. We are entering into a time when many things that we have hooked our identity on to are changing and we are faced with "now what?" and "who am I?".
Many of us feel alone in this and isolated. That is why we're talking about this! So, join us and other women in this candid open conversation about what goes on beneath the surface and feel connected to the rhythme of your natural blueprint. Nothing is wrong with you! It is just time to step fully into your changes and embrace your authenticity.
This show is also great for you younger women wondering what you have to look forward to as you move through into maturity!
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.

GENDER VIOLENCE: IS IT REALLY THAT DIFFERENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST?
The news gives us shocking reports of violence against women in the Middle East – stoning, brutality, punishment for being sexually assaulted—it has to be worse than the US, right? It turns out there are vast differences in gender violence, but there also are a surprising number of similarities.
