The Ripple Effect – Iris’ Story

It took years before I could share my story with others but when I did I discovered I was not alone. My main goal in sharing my story was to let other women who had been raped to know they were not alone either. Every 107 seconds, another American is sexually assaulted in our country 44% of those assaulted are under the age of 18 About 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the ...


Attitude Reflects Leadership- Moving Forward

Attitude Reflects Leadership   The election is over, the results are in and the people have spoken. President Obama won the electoral vote by a distinct margin as well as the popular vote- although, admittedly by a lesser margin. The people also made their voices heard in several key Senate races, rejecting the misogynistic, xenophobic attitudes of the Todd Akins and Joe Walsh’s of the ...


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...


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...

How Dare They!

May I please ask what in the hell is going on in this country? It seems to me that batshit crazy has spread like a virus and infected not only some politicians but a large portion of the general population as well. I am used to crazy. We southerners keep our crazy relatives in the home. That way when visitors stay too long we just parade crazy Aunt Lula out and let her have a go at them. This...


Dear Todd

  I am a woman, a survivor of rape, and a registered Republican. You have issued an apology for the uneducated “off the cuff” remark you made where you stated “from what I understand from doctors, pregnancy [ as a result of rape] is really rare. If it is a legitimate rape, the female body has a ways to try shut that whole thing down.” Todd, I do not accept your apology! The ...


Soldiers Needed for the War on Rape

  The problem of rape still plagues the United States. Why? Because rape mainly affects women: 9 out of 10 reported rape victims in the United States are female.[1] Under the leadership of a predominantly male government, rape receives little attention (the House is comprised of 362 men and 76 women; the Senate 17 women and 83 men).[2] As an example of the general disinterest our governm...
