Special documentary, "Becoming Papa: Fathers Key to Gender Justice."
American women are much closer to gender parity than they were forty years ago. Some experts say the final obstacle in the path to equality requires getting men on board. But who ever thought soccer could curb domestic violence, rampant in Rio de Janeiro's favelas? "Becoming Papa" follows the journey of two men from backgrounds of violence as they make the decision to live their lives without violence, learning the strength of equality and the power of being loving caregivers of their children, partners and wives. The documentary follows the work of NGO Promundo, which offers free membership in an amateur soccer league as long as men attend regular workshops and/or therapy sessions. Host Bonnie Erbe calls their remarkable transformations to equal caregiving, "the final chapter in feminism." By watching "Becoming Papa" men & women in the U.S. and other countries can discover the secrets to beneficial and egalitarian relationships in which couples thrive. The story is set against the backdrop of Rio's hyper-masculine, hyper-violent culture. Children are exposed to violence, rampages and murders outside of the home, as well as constant fights inside the home.
