Ending the Silence on Domestic Violence

This program is generously supported by Blue Shield of California Foundation.

1992 was triumphantly declared the Year of the Woman. But, in the 26 years since, how much have policies and perceptions changed in the pursuit of gender equality? Women and men are speaking out about the harassment, injustice and violence, which remains pervasive in our society. In order to generate long-term solutions with real change, many experts believe we must address the systemic causes of abuse. Join Representative Jackie Speier and Suzy Loftus, former San Francisco police commission president, as they discuss the cycle of abuse and how the women’s movement can help end domestic violence.
