Gender-Based Violence, a Conversation with Veronique Church-Duplessis of White Ribbon, pt.1
In March, we had a conversation about gender-based violence and sexually predatory behaviour, particularly in the music industry. After we posted the episode, we received a lot of very thoughtful, helpful, and critically insightful feedback. As a result of the interview and the responses, we made a commitment to have more conversations about gender-based violence and ways of responding to violence. This episode is part-one of a two-part interview with Veronique Church-Duplessis from White Ribbon. “White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement of men and boys working to end violence against women and girls, promote gender equity, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity” (taken from their website).
Given the response from the listeners to our last episode. We have decided to post part-two of this conversation next week (May 2) rather than waiting a full month.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to listen and reach out to us after the last episode. To see our initial response to comments we received, please visit our Facebook page facebook.com/CYCpodcast
