Ending Men’s Violence Against Women with this Generation
The event was organized in recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of all Violence Against Women, as recognized by the United Nations.
The forum was moderated by Denice Traina, the immediate past co-chair of the Georgia Green Party, with panelists including: Vednita Carter, Robert Jensen and Hilla Kerner.
Vednita Carter is the founder of Breaking Free, a Minneapolis based program providing exit services for women victimized by commercial sexual exploitation, including its John’s School for men arrested for pandering.
Robert Jensen is a professor retired from the University of Texas and the author of multiple books including: the 2007 examination of pornography called “Getting Off: The End of Masculinity” and the 2017 book, “The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men”.
Hilla Kerner is a long time member of the Vancouver Rape Relief Collective who serves as their spokesperson working with their public education efforts.
In an hour and a half, the panelists discussed a range of issues including the popular narratives which have cast sexual exploitation as female empowerment, the role of trauma as a predictor for participation in prostitution, the role pornography plays in men’s violence, the role that law enforcement and our schools should be playing to address men’s violence, whether and how perpetrators of men’s violence against women can be rehabilitated, the Moment of Truth Statement on mass incarceration, the misogyny of the political left, the role of race in efforts to protect women from men’s violence, public policy responses by the epidemic of violence and more.
In recognition of this year’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the Sixteen Days of Action we are called upon to take towards that goal, the Georgia Green Party is now proud to release for the first time, a series of video episodes derived from the recording of our December 2020 event.
