Women's Advocates Issues "A Call To Men"
June 19, 2014
Forty years ago, there were few resources to help women who faced domestic abuse. A new nonprofit organization called Women’s Advocates was formed here in the Twin Cities, and its organizers quickly learned that one of the most urgent unmet needs was simply to have a safe place to stay.
As a result, Women’s Advocates created the nation’s first shelter for battered women and their children.
That organization continues its work today, and as part of the observance of its anniversary, Women’s Advocates has invited Ted Bunch to come to Minnesota for a program that will be held at the Penumbra Theater. Ted Bunch is a co-founder of the group “A Call To Men: A National Association of Men and Women Committed to Ending Violence Against Women.” He talked with KFAI's Paul Brohaugh on The Morning Blend.
