laurren 's Thoughts:

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to have grown up in your mother’s, grandmother’s or even great grandmother’s time? While it has always been and may always be a bit challenging to be a woman in what is commonly referred to as “man’s world,” women certainly enjoy freedoms, both socially and politically, that women before us have not. I’m proud of the sacrifices women have made and continue to make to ensure the type of equality that I often find myself taking for granted.

One freedom that has not been solidified for women, however, is a life free of sexual violence. In fact, one in four women will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18. No matter your race, socioeconomic status, or level of education, it’s likely that you know someone who has been a victim of sexual abuse.

During my second year of college at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I changed my minor from Spanish to Women’s Studies and became involved with the The Women’s Center on campus and one of its programs—The Transformation Project—which works with campus and community partners to implement policies and procedures to reduce instances of violence on campus and correctly respond to victim’s needs should violence occur. One of the community partners I became most familiar with was The Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults—a non-profit organization which provides confidential care and medical assistance to victims of sexual assault or rape. Over the years, I saw what a valuable rescource The Partnership is to Chattanooga women, and would love to able to give them something to aid their cause.
