Episode 14: Ben Atherton-Zeman of Voices of Men, a one-may play to end violence against women

On today’s episode, our guest is Ben Atherton-Zeman, a public speaker and comedic performer on issues of violence prevention.  His one man show, “Voices of Men” has been performed in over 46 states and around the world, including four continents.  Ben has spoken and performed at military installations, colleges, high schools, public theatres, conferences, houses of worship and juvenile detention facilities.  For almost thirty years, Ben has worked as a prevention education for rape crisis centers, domestic violence programs and state coalitions.  He is an advisory board member for the White Ribbon Campaign in the United Kingdom and a blogger for Ms. Magazine.

Ben will speak with us today about what it means to be a “recovering sexist” and how he uses his comedy and performance art to help every man recognize and challenge violence and sexism in the world and in themselves.  He will also speak with us about his hashtag, #menlistentowomen and how he envisions we can use it as a starting point to create meaningful dialogue about issues of male privilege, sexism, misogyny, and healthy relationships amongst the sexes and across the gender spectrum.
