Somebody Must Say These Things

19-04-2024 • 35 mins

In this episode of Somebody Must Say These Things, we explore the importance of building a future free of violence against women, focusing on proactive measures to educate and empower our children, the next generation. Expert guests like Rhonda Fraser, Safety Outcome Advisor at the Nova Scotia Highest Risk Domestic Violence Table, Professor Suzie Dunn, and Dr. Katie Mendez, highlight the role of technology in perpetuating gender-based violence and the challenges parents face in monitoring online content. Toxic online influencers are identified as exacerbating harmful ideologies, particularly among young males. Initiatives like the Roots of Empathy Program and Domestic Violence Leave policies are praised for fostering empathy and awareness. The importance of establishing trusting relationships with children and engaging in open dialogue about online safety is emphasized. As a society, we must continue to recognize the transformative impact of support systems on children affected by domestic violence, highlighting the collective responsibility to ensure safety and opportunity for all.

This podcast was made possible by the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia. THANS exists to eliminate violence against women in Nova Scotia. Their organizations provide a full range of support services to women and their children in a safe, supportive environment and provide survivors of violence with opportunities to learn about available resources, and alternatives to facilitate informed personal choices and decisions.


THANS is not 100% government-funded by the provincial or federal government. This needs to change. Go to thans.ca to learn how you can help.


This podcast is narrated by Ginger MacPhee, Executive Director at Chrysalis House Association.
