toxic masculinity

  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?
