Frequent guest, Anna Doroghazi of (CONNSACS) Connecticut Sexual Assault Crisis Services, Inc. returns to Shattered Lives to update listeners on what her organization is doing to proactively stem the tide of sexual assault.
Legislatively Anna will bring the audience news of bills in this session that concern disability, restraining orders, and lease laws for victims of abuse.
She will also talk about CONNSAC’S collaboration with Men Can Stop Rape and the joint campaign titled, “Where Do You Stand Connecticut?” based on the primary prevention of sexual assault and how society can change and behave differently. Engaging men in the issue requires them to be more actively involved in the behavior changes and accountability for their actions. Already a full plate of topics, we will turn to military sexual violence and the variety of factors that contribute to why service members are experiencing elevated rates of sexual assault. The military culture makes it difficult for victims to speak out and prosecution is rare.
Tune in for this hour packed with information that will make a difference! Also be sure to listen to the podcasts of previous shows with Anna Doroghazi on other topics related to sexual assault and its prevention. www.donnagore.com
Sexaul Assault Panel Discussion, Tonight we will be focusing on the stories from survivors. Janice & Jerome speaking the truth! One is a survivor of Adult Rape another is a survivor of Child Rape. It is important to hear the voices of those who have survived the horrifying trauma of these crimes. We often hear of victims being revictimed by the system and throughout society. How would you react to these crimes? What would your surviving days and night be filled with as you tried to pretend nothing is wrong?
Sexual Assault occurs across all genders and all ages. Remember these crimes are about POWER!! This is not about having sex with that child; that teen boy; or that 20 year old woman. This is a crime about having control in the most personal way over another being. How is this not wrong in the eyes of society? How is it that what we've learned through generations before us how deadly silence can be for the victims?
A child living with this once a week, or maybe once a day, is a terrified and trapped child. A woman or man who cannot go out for dinner, drinks, movie, shopping without fearing and protecting themselves from someone attacking them; this too is a trapped human being. Our courts are getting a bit better on prosecuting these crimes, but until society accepts their job to prevent and report these attacks, NONE OF US WILL EVER BE SAFE FROM A RAPIST!!

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month (http://www.sapr.mil/index.php/saam) so CJ and I are dedicating tonight’s show to the topic of Military Sexual Trauma. Sexual Assault in the military is a rising problem and is something we want to make America aware about. It is a taboo sort of topic that does not get a lot of coverage in the news so this is out attempt at getting the word out there. It is one that is both embarrassing for the victim and the military as a whole. We would love to think that every service member is honorable and has values and morals but the truth is, just like in our society, that is not always the case. The convicted have ranged from lower enlisted to Drill Sergeants to senior leaders. There is even an ongoing trial right now where a One-star General is accused of such acts.
We have several guests on who have been victims of sexual assault during their military service. These guests are both female and male, which is important because this is not just a female problem. We are hoping other people will listen to the show, and if motivated to do so, call in if they have personal stories that they would feel comfortable sharing. It may not be something they were directly involved in, but maybe a connection they have to a case. We will be talking about the impact these acts have on the victim, their loved ones, the unit and the military as a whole. This is a tough topic but one that needs to be covered. We hope that by covering this topic tonight on Top Talk, it will encourage other victims who may have stayed silent and are still fighting with demons today to come forward and seek help and move beyond such horrific events.
Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy was recently on Amy Goodman's Demockery Now championing the call to ban "assault clips." What are "assault clips," you ask? "Assault clips" (or "magazines," as the gun people at the RNA call them) are the thingies that go in the bottom of the thing that goes BAM BAM BAM!!! If you can put a whole bunch of bullet-holders in the clip thingy, THAT'S AWFUL!!! http://www.democracynow.org/2012/12/19/we_ha
WnT Board Member and Vice President Rebecca Balog will join President Billie Fidlin to discuss domestic violence and sexual assault & recovery in Indian Country.
APRIL IS SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH
It is estimated that 1 of every 6 women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime, according to the Rape Abuse Incest National Network (RAINN). This number is about 1 in 33 for American men. Approximately 15% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 12. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injuries to women age fifteen to forty-four, more common than auto accidents, mugging, and cancer combined.
All Americans can play a role in changing the culture that enables sexual violence. Each of us can take action by lifting up survivors we know and breaking the silence surrounding rape and sexual assault. Together, our Nation is moving forward in the fight against sexual assault. This month, let us keep working to prevent violence in every corner of America, and let us rededicate ourselves to giving survivors the bright future they deserve.
