The Memeification of Domestic Violence with Beverly Gooden

Content Warning: This episode contains discussions about domestic violence/IPV.


This week, author and advocate Beverly Gooden joins the show. Beverly is the creator of the hashtag #WhyIStayed, which highlighted the stories of domestic-violence survivors and her memoir, Surviving: Why We Stay & How We Leave Abusive Relationships. We brought Beverly on the show to shed light on the conversations around domestic violence happening in pop culture. From the new Mike Tyson biopic on Hulu to Megan thee Stallion’s ongoing battle with public opinion - we’ve been inundated with narratives that favor the alleged abuser. We thought it best to amplify the experience of those who are at the receiving end of that harm.
