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...


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 ...

cranky confession: why I’m fighting the War on Women

"Why are you so passionate about women's rights, sexual victim's rights, and reproductive rights? You've never been raped or assaulted, you've never had an abortion, you've never been abused."

President Obama won the electoral vote by a distinct margin as well as the popular vote- although, admittedly by a lesser margin.

The Truth About Me

Her abuse started when I was three. Full of fury and rage, She’d beat the shit out of me. My saving grace (despite that it was “All My Fault!”) was I knew I was too little to be responsible for something this big. It was this little piece of me She could never beat away no matter how much She tried. I was very smart so I never repeated the behavior that elicited Her abuse, but it didn’t ma...
