Rape Culture’s Collective “Ah Ha” Moment

Ah-Ha!

I'm having an ah ha moment while reading an article posted by a man explaining the phrase "rape culture" to other men. Truth is, I've had this same ah-ha moment before. You see, I'm again remembering that in addition to ALL the rape attempts I remember in my life and that I speak about readily, there's also a rape attempt I never really talk about. Because it was my boss. Every time I think ...

What Did She Do to Make IT Happen? I Was Walking to My Car

new-orleans-storm-debra-hurd

New Orleans is a city of beauty, culture, and diversity. There is a dark side to it though. Amidst the crowds of tourists and locals there are those predators who wander the street. In a Rape Culture some always ask “what was she doing to cause IT to happen?” Well, these women weren’t doing anything. Some were walking down the street, some stopped in a local watering hole and met what seemed...


Feminists, Mujeristas and Womanists, It’s Time To Unite!

Women of all races working together

Unless you are one of the few charmed women in the world that has been spared any struggle, it is time to recognize that we women are facing battles that our mothers and grandmothers fought years ago and policies being written by privileged white males. Most of us are in the process of living a full and well rounded life. In some cases you will be acknowledged for those experiences and in others...


My Country is on Life Support and the Prognosis Is Not Good

Resuscitating Uncle Sam

Yesterday was one of the most emotionally charged days for me that I have had in a long time. I sat here behind my laptop screen crying and enraged about the SCOTUS ruling inviting corporations and the 1% to take over more of our government and elected officials. Make no mistake about it - this has been coming and in the plans for decades. These corporations don't care one damn about the PEOPLE of...

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary

  I am coming upon my one year anniversary with UniteWomen.org and have been reflecting on what has happened for me in that year.  It started at work when I ran across a news blurb about Paul Ryan’s fight to grant zygotes personhood rights under the United States Constitution.  I snorted out loud at my desk.  How incredibly ridiculous!  As a women’s studies minor in college, I had re...


I Have A PHD From the School of Hard Knocks

I first met this incredible woman in 2013. Our friendship was not a long one but she touched my life in many ways. She sent me a friend request at the first of the year, and as I went to look at her page before accepting that friend request, I knew this woman was someone special. Her smile on her profile pic was one of the friendliest smiles I had seen in a long time. What really made me think she...


No Time for Reflection – A Game Plan for 2014

UniteWomen.org-Stand+Up+Be+Heard

An anniversary is a great time to reflect on one’s past. I wrote a piece last month that reflects on our accomplishments of 2013:   The goals of 2014 are far too critical to dwell on our past.  Legislation and rhetoric against our rights is occurring at an increasing rate already this year.  How do we stop this momentum?   Consider that mid-term election funding for Republican ...
