From A Woman's Point of View | Listen to this entire show:
Sarah McMahon ,an assistant professor at the Center on Violence against women and children at the Rutgers School of Social Work,talks about the culture of violence against women and children in certain"communities" in this country. She explores the attitudes of entitlement and power that can contribute to the violence. She also talks about rape "myths" and the need to literally be clear just what rape is. She hopes that if the community is aware of the factors involved in this continuum they can be involved in the mitigation and prevention. She has done extensive research on bystanders who watch and do not intervene. For more information go to the center on Violence against Women at the Rutgers School of Social Work.
