great talk about violence against women.

a lot of this talk has always been fairly obvious to me (which is one of the big reasons why although i have no issues with curse words, i very consciously try to avoid using the word "pussy" to imply weakness or "balls" to imply strong because those are gender biased), but it's nice for the issue and its potential long-range solution to be articulated so well.  Here's one of my favorite quotes that happens in the last couple of minutes:

"we know so much about how to prevent domestic and sexual violence.  There's no excuse for a college or university to not have domestic and sexual violence training mandated for all student athletes, coaches, and administrators as a part of their educational process.  We know enough that we can easily do that, but you know what's missing?  The leadership.  But not the leadership of student athletes, it's the leadership of the athletic director, the president of the university, the people in charge who make decisions about resources."
