SORT BY Relevancy
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.

The Save Wiyabi Project: As an advocacy group, the project aims to address violence against Native American women, as well as develop community based solutions for Native women, in both tribal and urban areas.
In addition to addressing violence, we want to provide a space for open and respectful dialogue, sharing of stories, and positive and accurate images of Indigenous women. We want to dismantle systems of oppression and address the root causes of violence and culture that allows it to continue.
Wiyabi is Assiniboine for "women". This project was created as a social media campaign to assist in the Violence Against Women Act reauthorization with full tribal provisions.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Joe Hackman interviews Kathrina Rashid, M.A., Ph.D. an active board member of Bay Area Women Against Rape or BAWAR. BAWAR, the nation's first rape crisis center, was formed in 1971 to provide 24-hour comprehensive services for survivors of sexual assault and their significant others. Guest Bio. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Kathrina Lambright Rashid received a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University in 1998, and a doctorate in psychology from Saybrook University in 2009. For her doctoral research, she conducted a psychometric analysis of a psychological test instrument for cultural, socioeconomic and educational bias against Latinos. For that study, she worked with approximately 200 Latino former gang members to adapt the instrument and make it applicable for use among that population.
Kathrina’a interests include cultural issues in psychology and research, and she specializes in providing psychotherapeutic services to individuals and families across a range of cultural and ethnic groups. She has provided consultation to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office regarding cross-cultural aspects of sexual assault and domestic violence, and worked with local private attorneys on the cultural aspects of their cases.
In addition to writing many papers on cross-cultural clinical applications, Kathrina is currently co-writing a book on the subject. She is a member of the American Psychological Association, the International Association of Cross-Cultural Psychology, the Association of Psychological Science, and the North Carolina Coalition against Domestic Violence, and serves on the board of Bay Area Women Against Rape, and her own community outreach program. She is bilingual in English and Spanish.
Every 2 minutes in the U.S. someone becomes a victim of sexual assault.

As we continue to discuss awareness we will check on how the process is going for you. Are you using the tools? Where can we support you more? For that please leave us a message either on our website or Facebook page. Because now that you are becoming more aware of what needs to change for you to move forward, you will also become more responsible for it. Responsibility can be a scary word sometimes. We will talk about how taking responsibiltiy for our own change will give us power and motivate us forward. We look forward to hearing from you and our time together next Monday at 9pm pst. Thank you!
Our last show focused on women and bi-sexuality. This week we want to focus on men who identify as bi-sexual and women who have experienced relationships where men were on "the down low."
Is there such a thing as a "bi-sexual" male? If a man sleeps with another man but still enjoy the company of a woman...gay? Why isn't it socially acceptable for a male to be bisexual? Even in the LGBT community? Is there such a thing as gay male privilege?
Women...have you experienced a relationship with a male whom you later found was on "the down low" or bisexual? If so, how did you handle it? Did you stay or leave? Did you blame yourself? Were there signs you missed along the way? How do you talk to a man about his sexual preferences without it being an offensive conversation? Should we actually discuss a man's sexual preference during the first date...or is that something we should even discuss at all?
I want us to discuss this. Join us and share your thoughts!
