I cut my damaged hair symbolizing me Removing the damaged pieces I was holding onto in life. Then I planted a seed symbolizing my spiritual growth and personal development.  I want to be able to share my story and experience and reach out to millions of women, who are healing from domestic violence, Absent/hateful parents, betrayal from friends/family, and academic denial, who wants to find their self-worth...."

How Male Violence Taught Women & Girls to Attack One Another
In these very troubled days, a woman or girl reporting male violence AND her attempts to prevent male violence are viewed as far worse than male violence. Even for seasoned experts on various aspects of violence against women, victim blaming. Faulting women and girls for male violence is an easy social habit to fall into. WE hope people will consider how often & habitually they accuse women & girls of being "selfish, mean, & bigoted" when her offense is being concerned about rampant, random, & unchecked male violence.

The Black Church is Called to Be Courageous Against Misogynists
The Black Church is Called to Be Courageous Against Misogynists
A call for the church to be vocal and supportive of Black women and Black girls who are frequent targets of violence and abuse. Excerpt: "I am hoping that there comes a day when all churches and houses of faith come back to ourselves and realize that we are to be symbolic of healing, wellness, and courage by confronting violence and abuse without flinching. I am hoping that there comes a day when victims of violence and abuse are regularly told that they are beautiful, valuable, special, and should harbor no guilt, shame, or low opinion of themselves.  That the church/house of faith is with them through their journey to healing. I am hoping that there comes a day when victims of violence and abuse can look to the church and know instantly that every house of faith is a refuge for them because every house of faith stands for and with victims of violence and not against them.  There is no call to be silent about abuse & violence in the church."

We're going back to Rap/HipHop history in the early years. During the earlier days of Hip-Hop & Rap, civil rights activist C. Delores Tucker voiced her concerns about violence and misogyny in the music lyrics. She took her concerns to media, owners of record companies, community events, and even the United States Congress. In response, some of the top Rap/HipHop artists 'dissed' her in their songs.  We also look at an example of how women can and do publicly disagree without being disagreeable.  Tonya GJ Prince from WESurviveAbuse.com, SurvivorAffirmations.com, and BraidtheLadder.org gives voice to healthful affirmations and reminders.

Black Women Are Not the Mammy for Every Movement
Black Women Are Not the Mammy for Every Movement
It's true. Black women are great warriors and strategists. We come from cultures that are filled with love, compassion, and resilience. People around the world have always had needs, but so do we.   "Mammyism"  That's a term I am hearing more and more often.  "Mammyism" is the demand for Black women and Black girls to do more while continuing to accept that they will get less. One of the major tenets of Mammyism is that Black women and Black girls labor for people who have no intention, and therefore no plan to labor for us in return. When we say that I want everyone to be safe, healthy, and get all of their financial needs met, I mean Black women too.

Strong Woman's Guide to Teaching Healthy Boundaries to Kids
Strong Woman's Guide to Teaching Healthy Boundaries to Kids
Notes from this episode: A child who grows up in a home having healthy limits will also learn to apply such boundaries in his own life. What Does “Boundary” mean? A boundary signifies a limit that a person has.  Can be physical or emotional.  Boundaries are like contracts, “I won’t do anything to harm you” and “I expect you not to do anything to harm me. When you’re raising kids to have healthy boundaries, it’s important to allow the children to have and express their own feelings. The best way to teach children healthy boundaries is for parents to have healthy boundaries themselves and to model them in the home. Showing respect for each person in the house,  ensuring everyone has rights to their feelings and  appropriate expressions of them,  and talking openly and honestly about any challenging issues demonstrate healthy boundaries for children.

*Trigger Warning* (nongraphic discussion of child abuse)  "If we women and girls were better protected, there would be no ugliness to speak of." Women & girls who speak about the violence and abuse that they experienced are often accused of being "vile" even hateful. This is wrong and unacceptable.   Women and girls are only telling true stories about violence inflicted upon them. If we women and girls were better protected, there would be no ugliness to speak of. Tonya GJ Prince tells a short story about how language is important to Survivors of sexual violence.
