Changing The Rape Culture – One Voice At A Time

Anger is often the catalyst that compels us to do things.  It was anger that compelled two women to start “Unite Against the War on Women” last year.   Again, it was anger that compelled us to embark on the “Unite Against Rape” campaign. Alexandria Goddard, the Steubenville blogger, drew the world’s attention to the rape of Jane Doe. People were outraged that a human being could be...


Shedding Shame – A Personal Journey through Unite Against Rape

As the National Director of Public Relations for UniteWomen.org, I have been extremely proud of our Unite Against Rape campaign. From the first time we discussed it, I sensed this campaign would be bigger than the sum of its parts. We were faced with an opportunity to use our social media platform to spread awareness of the epidemic of rape in our culture. By enlisting a large variety of participa...

Reality Bites – Lessons From November 6th

Democrats had an amazing election night, so much so one would think Republicans would be doing some serious soul searching. Instead what are we hearing? • We lost our momentum due to Sandy • Our country is made up of more “takers” than “makers” with those takers just wanting free stuff. • We weren’t anti-abortion enough • The liberal media is in the bag for Obama • D...


Good-Bye GOP

Last Presidential election it was about making history. I cried that night because finally America cast aside its prejudice and racism and voted for a man, not based on his skin color, but on who he was as a man. I was so proud, so grateful that in my lifetime I saw the struggles of my parent’s generation fighting for civil rights and equality come to fruition. On Nov. 6th I know there will...


a cranky theory on Paul Ryan’s jobs plan, and why I have trouble sleeping at night

  Reflecting on the religion/abortion question from the VP debate, Ryan said that (flip flop alert!) he WOULD allow abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother. Note that he said life of the mother, not health of the mother, which are two different things-- if the fetus isn't definitely going to kill the woman, there's a chance she won't get the abortion she still needs, or w...

Women have not been treated as full citizens of these United States from the inception of this country, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution through the amendment process, did not remedy these deficiencies, our lives have been restricted unduly because of false information and invalid ideas which depicted women as inferior human beings in mind and body incapable of self determi...
