What would you do if you suspected a friend was a victim of domestic violence? What would you do if you saw someone being threatened or abused in a DV situation? That's what we talked about on The Call To True Beauty on WCLK Wednesday, July 2.
The Call To True Beauty asks some hard questions this month. Do jokes and images of domestic violence in popular culture pave the way for tolerance of abusers? Just what do women 'owe' men? Do popular videos and music and images filled with misogyny and women as objects make it easier for men to abuse women?
Host Daphne Walker, President and CEO of Atlanta's Partnership Against Domestic Violence, will be joined by Tomeka Daniel, Senior Attorney supervising Domestic Violence for Georgia Legal Services, Macon Division. They will talk about it, and take your phone calls live.
