    Evan Stark on "Coercive Control" as a gendered liberty crime

    Evan Stark on "Coercive Control" as a gendered liberty crime

    On this episode, our guest is Evan Stark, a sociologist and forensic social worker who has been working at the interface of feminist activism, child welfare, health research and justice reform since he and his wife Anne Flitcraft, MD helped found one of the earliest Shelters for battered women in l970's. His prize winning book Coercive Control: How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life (Oxford, 2007) helped stimulate the new crime of "coercive and controlling behavior" throughout the United Kingdom and helped broaden the conversation in the United States.  
    His new book "What about the Children?" documents the many ways that abusive partners coercively control children and how children respond, holding that it is imperative to treat coercive control as a spectrum.  We will be speaking with Evan about domestic violence and coercive control and unpack some of the myths of domestic abuse and how batterers harm. We hope you will find this helpful in understanding those in your who may be engaging in these tactics and how best to respond and to stay safe.
    You can read more about Evan's background here and download a summary of his work on coercive control here.

    On this episode, our guest is Phyllis B. Frank, the Senior Director of VCS, a mental health counseling and family service agency located in Rockland County, with an anti-racist, social justice mission.  Phyllis has dedicated herself to the battered women’s movement for the past 40 plus years, starting the first NY Model for Batterer Programs.
    Phyllis shares with us her journey over the past four and a half decades from volunteer counselor to battered women's activist to social justice legend.  She is here to talk to us about the program and its impact, shortcomings of the program, and other ways in which we can strengthen our systems to hold abusers accountable to their actions and keep survivors and their children safe.
    During our show, Phyllis and I spoke about a variety of topics and thought it would be helpful to share links to those references and resources:

    Ruth Glenn, CEO and President of the NCADV on national priorities in fighting gender-based violence

    Ruth Glenn, CEO and President of the NCADV on national priorities in fighting gender-based violence

    On our show today, our guest is Ruth M. Glenn, the CEO and President of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).  Previously Ms. Glenn was employed by the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years.  Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for over 25 years and holds a Masters’ in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Colorado Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a BA in Communications.
    Ms. Glenn has served on many domestic violence program and funding boards, provided hundreds of presentations on domestic violence victimization and survival, testified before the Colorado state legislature and the United States Congress, and provided consultation, training and technical assistance on a local and national level on victim/survivor issues as they relate to domestic violence.  As a survivor, Ruth also often shares her experience to bring awareness about the dynamics of domestic violence.
    She is here with us on this episode to talk to us about the work she does at the NCADV and to debunk commonly held myths of survivors and abusers and how survivors and advocates like herself can play a vital role in the crafting of a national narrative in this work that is inclusive, empowering and impactful.  We will be speaking with Ruth about the NCADV’s role in the creation of the DisarmDV website and partnership which will address gun violence prevention and reform in America, the role of the media in reporting on domestic violence and in particular, its role in gun violence, and her thoughts on the intersection of race, class and gender as it has played out in the NFL’s DV and kneeling policies.
    Here are links to some of the references we discussed in the course of our conversation:
    LA Times headline for the Santa Fe Shooting
    And here is a tweeter commenting on the #genderbias in the reporting of the incident:

    ...and the media's downplaying of the shooter's abusive childhood, which is often minimized or erased as part of #massshooter media coverage.

     
    Here is the letter that Ruth wrote to Sarah Palin when her son, Track, was arrested on domestic violence charges and Ms. Palin blamed President Obama and mental illness as the reason for his behavior.

    Michelle Carroll of the NYS Coalition Against Sexual Assault on campus rape, laws and guidelines

    Michelle Carroll of the NYS Coalition Against Sexual Assault on campus rape, laws and guidelines

    On this episode, our guest is Michelle Carroll, Director of Campus Projects at the NYS Coalition Against Sexual Assault.  In May 2017, Governor Cuomo signed into law New York's groundbreaking "Enough Is Enough" Law, NY Education Law Title 129-B,  and the guidance the law offers, which requires that all colleges and universities in New York adopt a set of comprehensive procedures and guidelines related to domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault, to ensure the safety of all students attending colleges in the state.
    Michelle speaks about her work implementing the law in college campuses across New York State, responses from advocates and its impact on students so far.  In our conversation, Michelle also addresses about Title IX, implications on its enforcement given Department of Education's interim guidelines under Secretary of Education, Betsy Devos, and responses from parents of accused sexual assault assailants.   Here is the "Dear Colleague Letter" that the Department of Education issued in September 2017, withdrew previous Obama-era issued guidance, effectively lowering the evidentiary standard for campus sexual assault investigations and rescinding the sixty day time limit to complete investigations.  Our conversation also included reflecting upon rape and sexual assault in general,  student protests of case mishandlings, #MeToo and the post by a woman who wrote about her date gone wrong with Aziz Ansari.
    During our conversation, we referenced some information and resources I am sharing with you below, including:
    Myths and actual rates of false reporting in sexual violence cases and the original research paper from a 10-year study by David Lisak et al. CUNY's Sexual Violence Campus Climate Survey, including rates at which intimate partner violence negatively impacts student persistence and success Finding your local NYS community rape crisis center, the NYS Office of Campus Safety, and the full audit result from the audit of 440 NYS universities (Note:  You can search by school name to see if your school was compliant) The NYS Trooper Campus Sexual Assault Unit Hotline:  (844) 845-7269 For immediate help in NYS, call the NYS Hotline for Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence at:  (800) 942-6906 Outside of NYS, the National Sexual Assault Hotline is:  (800) 656-4673 If you are experiencing an emergency, you should call 9-1-1, for immediate assistance.
    Also, if you are a college student (or graduate student!) in New York State and are interested in sharing the work that you are doing on campus or in your community, please join the New York State Campus Consent Consortium’s Student ONLY working group! Or, if you are interested in learning more about the working being done by the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault and the New York State Campus Consent Consortium, please join their free listserv!  If you want to get in touch with Michelle, you can find her on her blog, Michelle Carroll blog.

    #SurvivorStories Series Debut with "Elizabeth" on abuser tactics, signs of abuse and upstander tips

    #SurvivorStories Series Debut with "Elizabeth" on abuser tactics, signs of abuse and upstander tips

    On this first episode of the series we call #SurvivorStories, we introduce the hashtags #abusertactics, #signsofabuse and #upstandertips to shed light on the multitude of ways in which abuse, power and control, or coercive control dynamics can manifest in a relationship.  Our goal is to help develop a cultural literacy around recognizing abuse of power.
    A common vocabulary and language can help all of us act more effectively and more responsibly when survivors in our lives reveal themselves to us.  By understanding better the ways in which oppression is manifest in personal relationships, we can better recognize it when it shows up in our schools, in our workplaces, in our churches, in our popular culture and news, and in the rhetoric and practices that come from our elected officials and in law and in policy.   
    If we connect the dots, we can see the intersectionality and roots of all oppression, linked.  We can better recognize it in ourselves.  It will help us better parents, supervisors, daughters, sons, friends, and neighbors.  Hopefully, this greater awareness will create more compassion, more understanding, and deeper connectedness in our relationships.  It will, in turn, move us further into the light.  We will, then, become the solutions that we seek.

In my top 10 podcasts

Host Teri Yuan is a great new voice in podcasting that does a great job dismantling misconceptions, myths and intransigent thinking in all things gender. Her interviews are deeply empathetic and sharply insightful, using a light touch that doesn't underestimate her audience's ability to make their own conclusions. Teri's guest list is a who's who of authors, journalists, academics, researchers, advocates, and professionals in the gender justice realm and is an invaluable resource for anyone who has a personal or professional interest in these critical matters. She also feature survivors stories from different corners of the world who share their experiences in very powerful ways, real life reports from the on-going war on women - in the private realm, in the justice system, in reproductive rights, in health care, in the work environment - each story chockful of invaluable information and knowledge for all of us. en(gender)ed podcast really adds moral clarity and leadership to the gender conversation, something we need much more of in our culture.
