This week, Shannon Fisher welcomes Angela Peabody, President and Founder of the Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that was formed to eradicate gender based violence and empower women and girls worldwide through education.
Female Genital Mutilation is internationally recognized as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. An estimated 230,000 women and girls are at risk for female genital mutilation in the U.S. annually. Around the world, 8000 girls are victims of FGM daily. Up to 140 million girls and women worldwide are currently living with the consequences of FGM.
Female genital mutilation has been illegal in the United States since 1996, and transporting girls out of the U.S. for FGM is now punishable by five years in jail, but the procedure is still performed in private, and it has gone largely underground.

Sharing the Word of God with the WORLD!,
Women around the world are being brutalized in the name of "culture." Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation seeks to end all practices that violate women - that includes domestic violence, sex trafficking, rape and female genital mutilation. Education and economic empowerment will enable women to eradicate the culture of violence against women. Many women unknowingly perpetuate such a culture, out of wrong beliefs that they have no choice but to submit to cruelty. Today's guest, Angela Peabody, head of Global Woman PEACE Foundation, will discuss the organization's work in empowering women worldwide. As we look ahead to the year 2020, the 100th year of the 19th Amendment that gave U.S. women the right to vote, we look at how women can use their collective power to organize globally to end war and violence everywhere.

Tonight's special guest is Angela Williams from Marietta, Georgia, abuse survivor, author and returning NAASCA family member. Ms Williams is Founder & CEO of VOICE Today, launched in 2008, where the goal is to increase global awareness about childhood sexual abuse, and promoting its prevention, healing programs and resources. "As a survivor of incest, suffering in silence for 14 years at the brutal hands of my stepfather," she says, "my passion has become helping others learn to break the silence barrier of child sexual abuse and to make a difference in the lives of children in the next generation." A faith based organization, the values of the Voice Today Movement include the belief that prayer is the power source against the demonic forces driving child sexual abuse. They seek to break the silence of child sexual abuse by educating adults, speak out unashamedly and provide healing support for survivors, and that will become a platform for social change. Angela shares her own journey as a survivor in her book, "From Sorrows To Sapphires" and is co-author of "Pathway to Healing." Other books include "True Intimacy" and "Tough Talk To Tender Hearts." Angela is a tireless advocate. Through VOICE, Angela works to change society’s attitudes and actions that surround child sexual abuse, and seeks to shift the responsibility for preventing Child Sexual Abuse from the child to the adult. She hopes to empower survivors to find their voice and start the healing process.
