  • Seeking Help as a Survivor of Sexual Violence

    Rape, abuse, and sexual assault are crimes that overwhelmingly target women, so I will be speaking primarily about women who have survived these things, and from my own experiences as a woman who has been assaulted.

    Stalkers, is a dangerous and frightening word. Instantly one pictures a man or woman in their mid-twenties to thirties, standing outside in the bushes late at night. In this picture the stalker is usually unkempt in appearance, with baggy clothes, and unwashed hair. They have some secret creepy shrine of their victims and a dangerous obsession. The frightening truth is that almost anyone you meet can become your stalker. At twenty-four, I learned this the hard way.

  • How “Teaching Men Not to Rape” Won't Prevent Another Steubenville

    Last week, Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond were sentenced for the rape of 16-year-old “Jane Doe” at an alcohol-fueled party in Steubenville, Ohio.

    Growing up, I was warned by many folks that there are situations we put ourselves in that can get us raped.

    Many people bring up the idea of requesting a father's signature before a woman can get an abortion. These people do not think of the consequences of such actions.

    Being pregnant is already a difficult thing. However in life, nothing is simple and abortion is possible.
