Prevention Connection‘s latest newsletter is pretty fantastic. It includes audio recordings from the 4th Annual A Call to Men conference (PDF), held last spring in NYC. If you’re not familiar with the project, A Call to Men “challenges men to reconsider their long held beliefs about women, in an effort to create a more just society. We achieve this by encouraging change in the behaviors of men through a re-education and training process that challenges sexism.”
OVC is hosting a web forum November 4th from 2-3pm ET: Serving Elder Abuse Victims in Indian Country.

Time once again for a run down of some of the new and noteworthy articles in the current literature. All of these are from the August/September issues. As always, please keep in mind this in no way a comprehensive list; simply items that have caught my attention from a selection of peer-reviewed journals. All links lead to PubMed abstracts; from there you can choose what’s worth a.) paying for; b.) a pilgrimage to your nearest medical library; or c.) downloading via the full-text access you possibly have at your disposal. The list is alphabetical by journal.

HRSA‘s Maternal and Child Health Bureau has an archived webcast, Domestic Violence Among Women of Color. It’s a 90 minute session and is presented by an esteeemed panel that includes Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell of Johns Hopkins University. The site gives you multiple options for accessing the webcast, including audio, PowerPoint slides, and written transcripts. Truthfully, it feels like the surface is only skimmed on this issue; any portion of the presentation could be its own 90+ minute program. Nevertheless, there are few offerings available on the distinct issues facing abused women of color, so I’m pleased this is available in an archived edition.
Over at The Hub, they are featuring a page on Violence Against Native Women in North America. Aside from multiple short videos about the scope of the problem, there are also several good links. One of those is to Amnesty International‘s recent report, Maze of Injustice. Follow that link for even more (heartbreaking, disturbing, enraging, _______ your adjective here) information on the issue.
