You are not alone. Together we can de-stigmatize speaking out about our experiences with sexual harassment, assault, and more.

    Another Perspective

    Another Perspective

    Although much is written on the subject of violence against women, on any given day one can search the Internet to find a myriad of stories regarding Domestic Violence from Academic Research from students and those working as professional advocates to thousands of blog, magazine, and news articles directed toward general readership audiences of all age ranges. However, there is very little written from the first-hand perspective of a formerly battered woman as told by the woman herself without speaking through professional advocates or journalists.

    What the World Is like After You’ve Been Raped

    What the World Is like After You’ve Been Raped

    When we are young, most people won’t see the world as it is. I can remember the world when I was young, was full of bustle and life, empty of responsibility and solely about meeting friends and having a good time. I couldn’t see much past primary school or secondary school, I knew that they were ahead of me, but between a group of friends at school, and a room for me at home, I could never have imagined what growing older would be—the people I’d meet and who I’d become.

    Coping Mechanisms for Survivors

    Coping Mechanisms for Survivors

    What specific coping mechanisms helped you the most when you were in a crisis due to sexual violence? I asked other survivors from around the world this exact question. I wanted to offer those options to someone in need and not just what helped me. Talking about it was the last on the list. Create art Counseling or support groups Rearrange your room and/or your surroundings Journal Practice meditation Play with animals Pray Deep breathing exercises (Box breathing was highly recommended) Take some time off for you Play a sport Talk

    The Day I Lost Respect

    The Day I Lost Respect

    *Sigh* It has taken my mind and heart so long to finally come to the world and share this story. Before I start I do want to state one very important thing. I still love my stepmom, but I do not agree with how she spoke and handled this situation, even though my dumb self put myself there. However, the word no. STILL. MEANS. NO!

    Noises

    Noises

    The ordeal started in grade school. Post summertime, new school year and I was already feeling the "first-day" jitters creep up on me. That's typical every school year. Growing up in a ghetto neighborhood had always been a struggle for women like me. If you acted different (non-black), you were basically treated... like a lame and a nobody.

    An Open Letter

    An Open Letter

    My first week of college, I was raped. For the longest time, I could not bring myself to say that I was raped. I started off by denying that it had ever happened to me. Yet when I finally did begin to accept that it had happened, I could only call it sexual assault. I denied myself the reality of what had happened in order to protect myself, but it only hurt me more.
