On this edition of Your Call, we welcome back Rachel Louise Snyder, author of No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us. We’ll discuss anti-violence programs for men, including one called Resolve to Stop the Violence, which began in a San Bruno jail. 

  On this edition of Your Call, Rachel Louise Snyder discusses her new book, No Visible Bruises —What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us. 

Every single minute in the US, 20 people are assaulted by their partners. Globally, 50,000 women were killed by family members in 2017, according to the UN. The same report called home, “the most dangerous place for women.” Snyder reveals how many solutions are based on false assumptions and are not protecting women. What still needs to change?

  On the December 30th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation about digital hate speech. Women are overwhelmingly the targets of cyber harassment. Some have even been chased out of their homes by the barrage of threats against their lives and families, while others have quit communicating online altogether. Is online harassment a civil rights issue? When is harassment illegal? And how should social media corporations and our legal system respond to threats online? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
