Episode 9 – Courageous Conversations (Violence in the Media)

20182377_10213432843596644_988814784_oCourageous Conversations is a round-table approach to having those difficult conversations.  Dr. Katharine Campbell, Dr. Laura Finley, Kris Drum (Owner of A Healing Space), and I (Amy Daumit, your host) sat down to discuss how violence in the media influences a culture of abuse and violence against women.

Our conversation began with a focus on the media but quickly took us down a path of how society perceives violence, how gender roles affect our outlook and healing, and how we can change the cultural perspective on violence against individuals and groups.  It is apparent to all of us how this issue of violence is far-reaching and broader than we often give it credit for.

Take Away:  Violence against women is violence against everyone.
