163: #SilenceisNotSpiritual: Breaking the Silence on Violence Against Women and Girls

Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak discuss the power of the #SilenceisNotSpiritual movement and the best ways to implement changes in our own communities.

Key Points

  • #SilenceisNotSpiritual is different than most movement hashtags because it requires people to sign a commitment that they will stand with women and for women.
  • 75% of harassment victims experience retaliation.
  • If you are going to help a women escape a violent situation or file a sexual harassment lawsuit then you also need to be willing to stand by them during the fallout.
  • If community and political leadership are heavily populated by men, does that affect its response to harassment of women?
  • Many churches that have policies that allow women in leadership don’t actually have any women in those positions.
