Wednesday, April 6, 3 pm ET The Halli Casser-Jayne Show takes a hard look at women and violence internationally and domestically with the founder of FUTURES WITHOUT VIOLENCE Esta Soler and with author of MILE 46: FACE TO FACE IN MAASAILAND, Joni Binder.
Esta Soler is an expert on violence against women and children. She founded Futures Without Violence over 30 years ago and transformed it into one of the world’s leading violence prevention agencies. Under Soler’s direction, Futures Without Violence was a driving force behind passage of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994. She is committed to passage of the International Violence Against Women Act to prevent gender-based violence on a global scale. Soler’s many awards include a Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Fellowship, a Koret Israel Prize, and a University of California Public Health Heroes Award.
Joni Binder’s new book MILE 46: FACE TO FACE IN MAASAILAND is a fascinating photographic and literary memoir about her time in Kenya living with the Maasai that underscores the urgent need for global community awareness and support for women who are disenfranchised by their own cultures. A wife and mother of two, Binder has served as president of the Modern Art Council at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and has become a strong advocate of arts education as a Fine Arts Committee member and Education Committee co-chair for the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the U.S. Department of State. She is currently helping to lead an international arts-driven campaign with Futures Without Violence and The Representation Project to raise awareness about healthy masculinity and its role in eliminating domestic violence.
