    WOMEN, PROTECTION ORDERS, AND THE REAL COSTS TO VICTIMS


    You’ve experienced violence from your partner, and everyone is telling you to get a protection order. Sounds right. The legal aid representative tells you how to proceed, it might help, and it doesn’t cost anything. Or does it? 


            Two researchers looked at whether getting a protection order had any impact on women’s earnings, and their findings may be a shock. And those findings covered six years of women’s earnings. Free to get a protection order? Think again.


    Melanie M. Hughes and Lisa D. Brush join us to look at their research and what it told them about women’s financial picture after getting a protection order. Hughes is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. She uses quantitative approaches to study women’s empowerment, often focusing on groups of women who are particularly marginalized. She is coauthor of Women, Politics, and Power: A Global Perspective (3rd Edition forthcoming with CQ Press). Her research has been published in journals such as American Sociological Review, American Political Science Review, and Social Forces. 


    Brush is Professor of Sociology and of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Her first book was Gender and Governance (Rowman and Littlefield 2003), and her second book was Poverty, Battered Women, and Work in U.S. Public Policy (Oxford University Press 2011). Her current research looks at preventing adolescent relationship abuse and teen dating violence by engaging high school and middle school boys in coached athletic programs to change masculinities.

    The Empowered Whistleblower with Dawn Westmoreland

    in Spirituality

    The Empowered Whistleblower with Dawn Westmoreland


    When you land in the Mental Health ward you get to choose—do I want to remain a “victim” of my circumstances or do I want to be a “victor” of my life? Dawn chose to check herself out of the Mental Health ward after three days and take charge of her life! The traumas we face in our lives can disempower us OR we can overcome them and thrive! “The Empowered Whistleblower” is Dawn's raw and transparent story of going through childhood sexual molestation, childhood/adult bullying, an alcoholic marriage and landing in the Veterans Affairs Mental Health ward after two years of horrific bullying in the Veteran Affairs for being a “whistle-blower”.


    In life, each negative experience can be a “gift” in ugly wrapping paper if you can find the lesson or growth in each opportunity. Dawn blew the “whistle” on disempowerment in its various forms and I am now teaching others as a Personal Power Coach, how to step up and “break their own chains” that hold them back from their personal triumphs. Today, she teaches others to push through their fears so they can also be empowered and experience more fulfilling professional and personal lives.


    Dawn experienced workplace bullying because she acted as a whistleblower in the Veteran Affairs, which is an agency designed to take care of military veterans – she stood up to practices that were prohibited personnel practices.

  • Do you remember the UN ACT 21?

    in Politics

    When the UN put Act 21 in play the UN is trying to bring about a communist one world government whereby socail justice is the only law and if you recall reading the Book by Karl Marks the Communist Manafesto the term and word socail Justice is used a lot and the meaning is government control over all human beings whereby the redistribution of wealth whereby there will be more taxes is to be made. 


    Now the UN wants to even have every human being live in an urban all in the name of the myth and biggest lie called "global warning" which is what the liberals and democrats and those republicans are say in which there is no proof of that even happening at all.


    Thge UN does want to remove all fredoms and liberties that we have and are entitled to by our Creator. 


    This the agenda and plain that the UN wantes to do.
