Call in to speak with the host
Join hosts Suparna Malhotra & Jeff Hendler. Join them as they welcome their first guest, Ben Atherton-Zeman. Jeff and Suparna believe deeply in the Gentle World and know that it is in our hands to create a Gentle World around us by being 'Gentle' Individuals. Through Openness they look at what we don't understand (e.g. the opposite sex) with curiosity, respect and a desire for better communication.
Ben identifies as a "recovering sexist" and believes that every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world and in themselves. 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 has given performances and presentations in 44 states, Canada, China, England, Turkey, South Africa and Czech Republic. He has spoken at military bases, colleges, high schools, public theatres, conferences, houses of worship and juvenile detention facilities. For the past seventeen years, Ben has worked as a prevention educator for rape crisis centers, domestic violence programs, and state coalitions. He is an advisory board member for the White Ribbon Campaign in the United Kingdom.
It's good to talk.
