Happy Women Entrepreneurship Day
Mothers who conceived in rape are being blackmailed by rapist-"drop the charges or I'll file for parental rights." Our legal system is failing victims by not believing mothers, treating them like criminals and giving rapists rights instead of jail time. Hear the truth from the victims themselves.

Rape is a crime that is improperly addressed and handled all the time because of the catch-22 mentality of society. Mixed signals and distorted interpretations of what "real men do" and the purpose of women are the damaged pipelines that lie beneath the murky waters of what is now a rape culture. Reality TV shows, political minimzing, idiotic candidates making controversial misguided remarks, and even some doctors coming up with "facts about the truly raped body" send damaging messages that rape is not in fact an existing crime at all...it is just the victim not being able to let go. Join in tonight as we discuss the contributing factors to the manifestation of th rape culture.

Rape is not funny: Why the Black community can't stay neutral on Bill Cosby.....

Things to consider:
Why is it that many see these allegations of rape as nothing more than an attempt to destroy the legacy of a man of influence?
When we discuss issues of sexual violence against women should we only be talking about allegations surrounding Bill Cosby or the issue of sexual violence in general?
Has Bill Cosby become the face of rape and made it easier to discuss issues of sexual assault?
Rape culture is a concept in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. Behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm of some forms of sexual violence, or some combination of these. There is evidence to suggest that rape culture is correlated with other social factors and behaviors. Rape myths, victim blaming, and trivialization of rape have been found to be positively correlated with racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, classism, religious intolerance and other forms of discrimination.
The most recent case with Bill Cosby has sparked the need to have this discussion. Both men and women, can be raped. Both men AND women can be blamed for rape. I want to have an open, adult discussion about it.

About The Year After
With unflinching honesty and unsinkable spirit, The Year After offers a rare and intimate portrait of author Ashley Warner’s emotional journey following a rape at the age of 24. Beginning with a candid account of the rape itself, the book accompanies Warner as the devastating effects of shock and trauma as well as the arduous experience of participating in criminal prosecution after the rapist is identified in a lineup take hold of her daily life, altering it -- and her -- irrevocably.
The Year After received the 2014 Reviewers Choice Award for Best Memoir, and was a finalist in the 2014 International Book Awards’ Best Non-Fiction Narrative category.
Kirkus Reviews calls it “An honest, moving and inspirational memoir of recovery.”

RAPE KITS BACKLOGGED ON SHELVES, RAPISTS FREE AS BIRDS. WHO’S DOING SOMETHING?
We've all heard about the backlog of rape kits at crime facilities and police labs all across the country, and all the information locked in those kits that could be used to prosecute rapists and prevent them from raping again. The good news is that some states are actually tackling that backlog and making headway in those DNA tests - AND finding a lot of criminals. The bad news – huge backlogs still exist; it takes money to process this evidence; and some states are actually charging victims for processing and investigating via rape kits.
Erika Teschke, Founder of RapeKitWA.org, started out as your everyday citizen until she read about the nationwide issue with untested rape kits. Since then she has talked with leaders at all levels of the rape kit chain of custody in Wa State and with national organizations such as the Joyful Heart’s End The Backlog in order to help bring victim centered rape kit reform to her home state. RapeKitWA. org began as an educational tool and has morphed into a community based grassroots lobbying effort that helped to both educate the public about rape kits and steer legislation through the WA State Legislature.
Join us as we talk with Erika to find out what's going on with rape kits around the country with rape kits and the victims they represent.
