Episode Description

When Golda Meir was the Prime Minister of Israel, back in the early '70s, an outbreak of nighttime assaults against women occurred. A curfew on all women was suggested but Golda refused. Since it’s the men who are attacking the women, she stated, let the MEN stay home at night. That's right, Baby! Put the responsibility where it belongs and then address the source of the problem. Today, Susan Bartelstone interviews Stephen Glaude, the Executive Director of a remarkable national organization called Men Can Stop Rape which is doing just that by mobilizing young boys (ages 10 and up) to prevent violence against women. Their programs challenge the harmful aspects of traditional masculinity, teach boys to value alternative visions of male strength, and show them how to foster healthy relationships and alliances with women. And, they're changing the attitude of millions of young boys. If you've ever wondered what can be done to stop rape, you don't want to miss this important show.
