Rape and sexual assault, a convenient tale to sweep under the rug. Tonight's show discusses the current allegations made of Bill Cosby. Should we believe the victims or should we allow Bill Cosby to keep his father of America image?
We will talk about what drives people to rape, What victims can do after being raped, and how we should be helping those who have been victimized.
As a victim/survivor of sexual assault, you may have some of the following feelings...
Anger, Fear, Guilt, Loss of control, Powerlessness, Embarrassment, Depression, Isolation, Denial, Shame, Disbelief, Self-blame, Emotional shock
You may experience some or all of the above feelings. This is natural and every victim/survivor of sexual assault responds differently. (http://www.connsacs.org/seeksupport/assaulted.htm)
Remember, you are not alone and you are not to blame for what happened.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are." - Rachel Naomi Remen

Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault.
Join us as we use this platform to educate and bring awareness to you about sexual violence.
