Today on Your Call: How can we break the cycle of violence against women and girls?



    On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about solutions to gender violence.  February 14th is V-Day, a coordinated day of action including a dance flash mob designed to empower women and girls. The Violence Against Women Act is also currently up for reauthorization by Congress.  But what is the socialization that leads to this violence?  And how can honest conversations with young people help to break this cycle?  Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and You.
