Real People Profiles - Bev Gooden
In the wake of several high profile domestic violence incidents that made national headlines, Beverly Gooden began a social media frenzy by creating the hashtag #WhyIStayed. Her powerful personal story of surviving domestic abuse resonated with people across the country who began to share similar stories. Gooden has appeared on several broadcast networks, including MSNBC and NBC, to discuss why she stayed in an abusive relationship, and what it took for her to get out. She shares with audiences the complex factors that may keep people in abusive situations – financial, emotional, fear for their safety and loss of identity – and stresses the importance of developing a plan to leave the abusive situation for good.

Pithy postcards from nameless senders offer a vivid and intimate mosaic of 21st-century interior life.
The nation has been in uproar in the past few weeks, as disturbing #rape allegations have been leveled against both #UVA fraternity members and once-beloved media figure Bill Cosby. But due to reporting errors by Rolling Stone and societal disbelief, the credibility of the accusers is now called into question.
In the Washington Post, Jaclyn Friedman, author of Yes Means Yes and founder of Women, Action & the Media discusses why this pattern is harmful.
"By loudly disbelieving accusers, no matter how unlikely it is that they are all lying, we are telling the survivors in our own lives, that we don’t believe them either"

A powerful piece by Michelle Alexander for the The New York Times reflecting on the pain of telling her young son the truth about #Ferguson.
Alexander is a beacon in the modern debate on civil rights, criminal justice and racial equality. Being the author of the New York Times Bestseller The New Jim Crow and a widely respected civil rights lawyer doesn't make explaining the harsh truth to her son any easier:
"For the past few years, I have traveled from coast to coast speaking to just about anyone who will listen about the horrors of our criminal injustice system...Yet here I am, on Monday evening, before the announcement about the grand jury’s decision has been made, speechless."
Learn more about Michelle Alexander's incredible impact on the modern civil rights movement here:
I write and lecture about the horrors of our criminal justice system. Explaining the Darren Wilson decision to my child was much harder.
