Women’s Rights in the Workplace A weekly conversation about workplace discrimination and the state of labor and employment law with Women’s Rights in the Workplace lawyer Jack Tuckner and his guests.

October 21, 2014  

Domestic violence has long been categorized as a women’s issue that the occasional “good man” gets involved with, and probably only because he was forced into it. To make matters worse, popular culture diminishes the seriousness of the problem. If 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and 1 in 3 women experience intimate partner violence on college campuses, how is it we haven’t declared on war on domestic violence yet?  How did we get to this woeful place where 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year, and how do we create a cultural shift in how domestic violence is perceived? Domestic violence will not stop until we engage men and youth in the conversation.

Join women’s workplace rights advocates Jack Tuckner and Deborah O’Rell as they are joined by their special guests Quentin Walcott and Sara Gonzalez. Quentin is an anti-violence activist and educator, and as a Co-Executive Director of CONNECT  he has spent years transforming the distorted perception of bystanders, male youth, and even batterers about the seriousness of this crime. Sara is the  Community Educator at Day One  where she works with youth to address intimate partner violence and issues of consent, and she also provides trainings for adults who work with youth, so that they’re better prepared to deal with the issue of Teen Dating Violence.  It is critical that men, mothers, brothers, sisters and friends unite to effect meaningful change to the culture of violence against women. Listen the their incisive, warm and authentic voices as they describe the massive value they add to addressing the root causes of domestic violence.
