Our Celebration of National Women's History Month continues with special guest Karen Doughty. Karen is the author of "Empowered To Uproot The Seed of Abuse."
Karen is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana but currently resides in Baton Rouge following Hurricane Katrina’s displacement. While holding true to her passion, she edifies, exalts, and encourages others. She holds a BA degree from Southern University at New Orleans, Louisiana, in social work and masters in criminal justice, with a concentration in corrections from Southern University and A&M College, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Karen is an avid volunteer for the Sexual Trauma Awareness and Response Center (STAR), formerly the Rape Crisis Center. On the crisis line, she counsels victims of rape and adult survivors of child sexual abuse. She is also a member of the Louisiana Foundation against Sexual Assault (LAFASA).
Karen’s platform has expanded to the masses via her radio talk show “The Lighthouse Rescue Radio Ministry Broadcast.” It is a beacon of light and source of inspiration for victims of sexual assault and adult survivors of child sexual abuse. Also the community-at-large will be educated about sexual abuse so we can react responsibly about the reality of it.
