Watch Brave Personal Stories of Domestic Abuse

Simply put, domestic violence is an epidemic: one in four women will experience violence at the hands of an intimate partner at some point during her lifetime. It knows no social, economic, ethnic, or racial boundaries. But domestic violence is not a one-size-fits-all issue. The following four Ted Talks discuss domestic violence from multiple perspectives, helping us to better understand this complex issue.

Leslie Morgan Steiner, Why Don’t Domestic Violence Victims Leave?



Leslie Morgan Steiner is a businesswoman, author, and domestic violence survivor. Her relationship started with adoration and love, but moved to isolation, manipulation, and violence. In this talk, Leslie seeks to answer the question many people ask about women who are being abused: "Why does she stay?"


Jackson Katz, Violence Against Women – It’s a Men’s Issue


Jackson Katz is an author and educator. He was the first man to minor in women's studies at his alma mater and believes that one of the biggest issues facing women – domestic violence – is a men’s issue as much as it is a women’s issue. In this talk, Jackson calls on men to help combat gender violence by challenging the social norms that lead to it.


Pamela Taylor, Creating a Safe Space for the Empowerment of Women


Pamela Taylor is best known as the co-founder of Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that helps disadvantaged women build the skills they need to get jobs. In this talk, Pamela discusses her abusive relationship and how it motivated her to start her organization.


Tony Porter, A Call to Men


Tony Porter is co-founder of the nonprofit organization A Call to Men: The National Association of Men and Women Committed to Ending Violence Against Women. In this talk, Tony explains how certain ideas of what it means “to be a man” impacts and influences how men view and treat women, specifically leading to violence.
