Watch A Movie About My Daughter – Then Write a Letter on Behalf of Yours

My name is Nacole and I am the mother of one of the girls featured in the movie “I am Jane Doe,” which chronicles the battle that my daughter and I are waging against Backpage.com, the adult classifieds site that for years was part of the Village Voice. My daughter was 15 years old when she made the teenage decision to leave home. What she didn’t choose was what happened next. Which I can...


A Survivor Who Once Said “I would never …”

It started as a push in the heat of an argument. To this day I don’t remember what the argument was about. He apologized immediately and all was forgiven. I had no idea that over the next year things would escalate. How could this happen to me? It was such a gradual process. Day-to-day life was for the most part normal...at first. By the time I realized he was an abuser it was too late - I wa...


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

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!

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...


2013 – A Year of Collaboration, Success and Learning

I was recently asked what the most memorable moment of 2013 was for me as President/CEO of UniteWomen.org.  In contemplating my answer, I realized there were countless memorable moments this year. We’ve had some fantastic successes that brought us great joy, and we also made some mistakes that brought about some heartache, but lessons were learned throughout – and the good far outweighed the ...


UniteWomen.org – Taking Action in 2014

As we are engulfed in the hectic pace of the holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to share the status of our many projects and campaigns with the UniteWomen.org community. We are going to need to really gather our focus in January and prepare to engage in several important women’s rights efforts in 2014. I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for all of your hard work...


Everyone Hates Rape…Right?

UNITEWOMEN.ORG and RAINN would like to be able to say, “Yes!” “Isn't it a given that everyone hates rape?” is something we hear quite often when inviting people to submit a statement for UniteWomen.org’s Unite Against Rape campaign.  Tragically, this question is not as rhetorical as it would seem.  A significant portion of our population is either unaware of, or indifferent to, the in...


Confessions of a Child Abuse Survivor

Part I It has been a decade now. A decade without abuse being a regular part of my life. It might not seem like a lot of time. But I guess if you spent your whole childhood with it, then it seems like a lot of time. A lot of time to let it grow into you, flow out of you, time to heal, to embrace yourself and to become your own person. I confess already that I am not over it – I still have ...


Not Completely Emotionally Damaged, Just Enough To Be Normal

For the past few days, I have sat in front of my computer, trying to decide what I would write for this blog post; staring at a blank screen, wondering where to even begin.  I start this story in the middle, not for convenience, but for you to understand my current thought process; the thoughts that seem to roll through my head as if to taunt my sanity.  Issues that I have felt since I can remem...
