    (BPRW) Media Legend Cathy Hughes to Serve as Keynote Speaker at the Sixth Annual Women of Color Empowerment Conference

    Event set for September 9-11, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale
    Media Legend Cathy Hughes




    (Black PR Wire) Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Cathy Hughes, founder and chairperson of Radio One, Inc., the largest African-American owned and operated broadcasting company in the nation, will be the luncheon keynote speaker for the Sixth Annual Women of Color Empowerment Conference (WOCEC). The conference will focus on educating and motivating dynamic Women of Color to lead more effectively.

    The prestigious event takes place from September 9-11, 2016 at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, located at 321 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The weekend of the WOCEC seeks to educate, encourage, and cultivate women leaders of color.

    "We are delighted to have the incomparable Cathy Hughes address the conference attendees in a year where our theme is Media Images of Women of Color” said WOCEC Founder Burnadette Norris-Weeks, Esq. “Hundreds of America’s top women leaders of color will convene in South Florida for a weekend of enrichment, enlightenment and empowerment aimed at broadening their spheres of influence and strengthening their ability to effectively lead.”

    Cathy Hughes is a dynamic, media pioneer who demonstrates the power of one – one woman, one vision, one company - Radio One. Hughes’ unprecedented career has spawned a multi-media conglomerate that generates original content across the spectrums of radio, television and digital media. Her humble beginnings in Omaha, Nebraska, were not a deterrent to her success but rather part of the catalyst that fueled her ambition to empower African Americans with information and to tell stories from their perspective.

    In 1999, Cathy Hughes became the first African-American woman to chair a publicly held corporation, following the sale of 7,150,000 shares of common stock to the public. Since that time, she, along with her son and business partner Alfred Liggins, III, has grown Radio One, Inc. into a multi-media company that is an urban radio market leader with 56 stations comprised of hip hop, R&B, gospel and talk radio formats.

    Radio One is the first African-American company in radio history to dominate several major markets simultaneously and is the first woman-owned radio station to rank number one in any major market. Its success has earned Cathy Hughes hundreds of prestigious awards and recognitions including: the ADColor Lifetime Achievement Award, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Chair’s Phoenix Award, the NAACP Chairman’s Award, the Giant of Broadcasting Award, the Uncommon Height of Excellence Award, the Essence Women Shaping the World Award, the Ida B. Wells Living Legacy Award, and induction into the American Advertising Federation Hall of Fame.

    Today, Radio One is the parent corporation of several subsidiaries: TV One, the premiere, African-American owned, cable television network in the country and current home of the hit shows UnSung, NewsOneNow, and the reality show R&B Divas; Reach Media, which presents syndicated radio programs like the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and the Tom Joyner Morning Show; Interactive One, home of several popular websites including The Daily Grind and Hello Beautiful; and One Solution, a marketing firm that allows advertisers to take advantage of all of the assets under the Radio One brand.

    Events planned for the Sixth Annual Women of Color Empowerment Conference include:

    Friday, September 9 at 6:30 p.m. -- Reception and Concert — Miki Howard, Avery Sunshine and the Alan Paul Band. Cost: $75.00 per person; $500.00 for VIP table of 4 with special gifts and adult beverages.

    Saturday, September 10 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. – Empowerment Conference – A multitude of empowerment sessions and dynamic topics of interest for everyone; plus a powerful luncheon with Media Legend Cathy Hughes – Cost: $100 per person.

    Sunday, September 11 at 8:30 a.m. – Purses, Pearls and Slippers Sisterhood Breakfast — This breakfast overlooking the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach seeks to empower financially so that attendees can live their fullest life. Learn the 7 Steps to 7 Figures from global television business expert Deborah Owens -- Cost: $50 per person.

    The Women of Color Empowerment Conference is coordinated by a committee of community volunteers serving under the direction of the not-for-profit Women of Color Empowerment Institute.

    WomenWorldCulture Outreach: Support this effort for Equitable Share of Internet & Other Markets for Women of Color, Women of the World and More Included Cultures

     WomenWorldCulture Outreach




    Dear Community Members:
    I am reaching out to request your review of the new website, WomenWorldCulture and for your support of this effort. Since it's inception, the Internet and Internet commerce, like commerce of the world, have not provided equitable opportunities to women of color/women of the world or the cultures from which we come. Your support, as suggested below, and/or by sharing this information widely will help us overcome the monumental disparities we are working to eliminate. Hopefully, you will share this information with your families, friends and associates.

    The new website is located online at http://www.womenworldculture.com. I hope you will consider becoming a member and also joining our linked, cross-promoting network where we will participate in promoting each other’s businesses, organizations, products and services. Services, programs, products and participation opportunites continue to be added.

    Current opportunities include

    Joining our Editor Directory or getting an editor to help with books in progress
    Getting resource information when faced with discrimination at work or in school
    Advertising on the WomenWorldCulture website
    Linking your business/organization to WomenWorldCulture and sharing the work and benefits of cross-promotion
    Using the WomenWorldCulture reading list to direct your reading to important current and historical issues

    As we grow, funds will be set aside to support members who are social entrepreneurs in need of capital for startups and organizational development. Unless we work together to help each other in this way, I see no one coming to rescue women of color/women of the world, and cultural groups not currently participating equally in Internet and other business opportunities, even though women are the world's largest emerging market.

    This study, http://www.ey.com/Publication/vwLUAssets/Women_the_next_emerging_market/$FILE/WomenTheNextEmergingMarket.pdf, not only identifies the issue, but also makes clear that the same people in control and excluding us, are investigating ways to dominate the markets to us, just as all those businesses, not of people of African descent, make millions from Kwanzaa related products--Hallmark, Ben & Jerry's and hundreds of others.

    Below is a related New York Times article. Note that the date is 13 years old and nothing has substantially changed for us. I have taken the risk to put this site together on a truly diverse basis in terms of race/ethnicity, cultures, gender, gender orientation, geographic location, languages, products, services and programs, without moving into existing areas already covered by competent women of color/women of the world, people of color and all the other people, especially grassroots/working class people. All who are marginalized, despite outstanding visions, education, talent, skills, experience and commitment to unity, collaboration, peace and global sustainability. For us to succeed substantially, others, especially social entrepreneurs, can step up and join in this effort to help produce the working capital that can not only fund WomenWorldCulture programs and services, but also support participation of members working in numerous areas and interested either in support for their own businesses and services or in opportunities to lead those developed by WomenWorldCulture, or both.

    The time is now to create our own opportunities. Otherwise, like Kwanzaa, the overwhelming majority of culture or gender related products and services will be imagined by us but produced by others, leaving us at the socio-economic bottom again. As has happened up till now, others will succeed from using our ideas and traditions for their own financial benefit in companies that, ironically, continue to exclude us from all but the lowest, least skilled, least compensated areas.

    I look forward to your immediate understanding and prompt participation in whichever opportunity is possible and best for you.

    Cordially,
    Suzanne Brooks

    CEO/Founder, WomenWorldCulture and International Association for Women of Color Day http://www.womenworldculture.com ; and http://www.womenofcolorday.com Social Entrepreneur, Creative Concepts Systems: 5 star rating in Sacramento Better Business Bureau http://www.bbb.org/sacramento/business-reviews/ Singer, Songwriter, Bandleader, The Jazz Generation https://www.reverbnation.com/suzannebrooksthejazzgeneration

    About One Million Moms OFF Welfare ™
    The One Million Moms OFF Welfare™ (1MMOW) celebrates and aims to liberate the working poor and unemployed mothers of America who, in a land of great richness and abundant resources, are consistently challenged to feed and shelter their children and keep their families whole in crime-ridden neighborhoods. These moms face these challenges in neighborhoods with our poorest performing public schools and fewest opportunities for youth engagement, employment, access to transportation, and other basic human services.

    The 1MMOW is an initiative of Can I Live, Inc., a private resident driven, non-profit organization dedicated to challenge the U.S. welfare system by revealing the problems in policy implementation that, for America’s moms, too often promote dependence rather than independence.

    The One Million Moms OFF Welfare by 2025 Initiative begins and ends with a 10-point exit strategy which promises to communicate, facilitate and coordinate efforts across local, state and federal programs and agencies. These efforts will educate, empower and incentivize single parents to achieve real economic independence.

    Naja Lingerie


    Naja Lingerie- Girls Run and Save the World with New Spring/Summer Collection


    Naja Lingerie

    Fishnet - Power down in pink
    Dare to be feminine. Smart, courageous, and sexy women aren’t afraid to prefer pink. Cozy, petal soft, and out-right cute. This collection features ridiculously comfortable bras and bralettes to mix and match with lounge-ready lace, mesh and cotton-lined bottoms.


    Naja Lingerie

    St. Germain - A little mystery is key
    Sexiness is found in the subtleties. Inspired by the political and artistic influence of 1890s French courtesans, opulent wallpaper patterns printed in black on black turn lingerie staples into statement pieces. The collection features a convertible bustier with side-boning and satine detailing reminiscent of coquettish corsetry and a delicate lace back.


    Naja Lingerie

    Prints Galore
    Have fun with it! Prints in Naja’s collection really make a statement which is sometimes needed when your having fun in the bedroom. The collections feature floral prints from the streets of Paris and New York on your panties. There is no shame with what is under the clothes.


    About Naja:
    Naja.co officially launched in 2014 and was quickly named “one of 5 top brands to watch” by The Lingerie Journal and said to be “chang[ing] the underwear industry through its innovation, attention to detail, and serious heart” by The Huffington Post. Their elegant, fashion-forward designs, quality eco-friendly fabrics, and fine details such as beautifully lined interiors and hidden inspirational quotes quickly captivated the attention of the fashion industry. However, Naja’s biggest differentiator, which attracted prominent female investors such as Mindy Grossman, CEO of HSN and Susan Lyne, former CEO of Martha Stewart Living, is Naja’s efficient supply chain and commitment to women.

    Mud, Blood & a String of Pearl - Vet's Intimate Look at 1st U.S. Female War Correspondent


    Most of us are unfamiliar with the name Dickey Chappelle. And yet Publishers Weekly gave the new book focused on her life and work — Dickey Chapelle Under Fire: Photographs by the First American Female War Correspondent Killed In Action by John Garofolo — a starred review stating, "[Chappelle’s] body of work surely deserves the wider recognition this book provides,” while Foreword Reviews said, "A fitting tribute to a fearless female war photographer.”

    In Dickey Chapelle Under Fire [Wisconsin Historical Society Press], Iraq War veteran and former entertainment industry executive John Garofolo provides a closely researched, incredibly comprehensive, and never-before-seen look at the work and life of Chapelle. An inimitable woman who defied convention every step of the way, her courage, work and spirit deserves recognition by every man, woman and child in America in the same way as Amelia Earhart.

    Dickey Chapelle Under Fire is a poignant hardcover, containing over 150 arresting black-and-white photographs, many of which once graced the pages of National Geographic, LIFE, and others. Peppered with excerpts from Chapelle’s compelling diaries and other remarkable stories of life on the front lines, Dickey Chapelle Under Fire follows Chapelle as she abandons her studies at MIT, marries, and persuades the Navy – despite objections from every side and, at the time, meager credentials – to let her cover the front lines in the Pacific. From Iwo Jima to the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, Chapelle overcame gender bias, a cheating husband, and ultimately earned the respect of the military and her media peers… in pearl earrings and cat-eye glasses, no less.

    With an emotionally-charged and eerily timely foreword from former Washington Post war correspondent Jackie Spinner, Dickey Chapelle Under Fire highlights the human impact of war while telling the bigger story beyond the battlefield – and is a not-to-be-missed volume for military history buffs and civilians of every age and from every walk of life.

    About the Author:
    John Garofolo is a screenwriter, college professor and former entertainment industry advertising and marketing executive. A veteran of the Iraq War, Garofolo provided security and escorted members of the international media into Iraq during the initial phase of the war, and is currently a Commander in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve, on active duty assigned to Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC. He is the author of Dickey Chapelle Under Fire: Photographs by the First American Female War Correspondent Killed in Action.

    Dickey Chapelle Under Fire [Wisconsin Historical Society Press, October 2015] is currently available via Amazon, the Wisconsin Historical Society Press website, and in all North American brick-and-mortar book retailers.

WEDU: Helping Women Finance their University Education


The feminist movement seems to have a new surge of popularity fueled by the endorsements by some of entertainments biggest stars. The biggest star fueling this movement is none other than Queen B herself. Wedu is a leadership development organization that aims to unlock the leadership potential of young women in Asia, enabling them to become leaders of their own development and that of their community.

Wedu achieves this mission by offering mentorship and innovative financing options for completing university education to high potential women ('Rising Stars'). Together, mentorship and education give young women the tools to realize their full leadership potential and goals.

Wedu was founded in 2012 to address the problem of the lack of female leaders in Asia. Since then, they have grown rapidly from 5 Rising Stars in their first cohort to 140 in 2015. Wedu is committed to serving 1,000 Rising Stars by 2018. Since its establishment in 2012, 100% of all rising stars enrolled in the program found employment six weeks after graduation. Wedu would be a good addition to any upcoming business features.

For more information about the organization please visit http://www.weduglobal.org/

National Orgasm Day

Dr. Kat, America’s leading sex therapist, weighs in on National Orgasm Day and simultaneous orgasms


Los Angeles, California – July 1, 2015 – While National Orgasm Day (July 31st) is one of the best new “holidays” in recent years what with all the benefits that orgasms provide us: stress relief, deep relaxation, pain relief, longer life and more. Dr. Kat Van Kirk, renowned sex therapist and clinical sexologist, cautions that couples should not put emphasis or attach importance to achieving simultaneous orgasms.

 Dr. Kat



“Most of us only have fleeting moments where we quite literally come together — at the same time. Orgasms for each partner can vary wildly due to hormones, positioning, mental activity, state of the relationship, etc,” said Dr. Kat.

Movies, popular media and pornography can lead one would think everyone has simultaneous orgasms with every sexual encounter. As a result, individuals, mainly women, fake orgasms due in part to the pressure to perform perfectly in the sack.

To fully honor and celebrate National Orgasm Day, Dr. Kat suggests that we stop looking at achieving simultaneous happy endings, but turn our focus on appreciating and enjoying the entire intimate experience. Take time to look your partner in the eyes, focus on the power of your touch, or simply make that kiss last a few seconds longer.

While it’s perfectly reasonable to experiment with simultaneous orgasm, it should never be an expectation. “A spectrum of sexual response should not only be allowable, but celebrated. Orgasming together is just another way to experience one another,” says Dr. Kat. “The societal pressure to not only orgasm but to do so at the exact moment your partner is, takes away from being present and just enjoying the sexual encounter.”

About Dr. Kat
Dr. Kat Van Kirk is a licensed marriage and family therapist and sex therapist. She runs the website: drkat.com and is the resident expert for Adam and Eve (adamandeve.com). She also is the author of The Married Sex Solution: A Realistic Guide to Saving Your Sex Life, and she is a sought after media personality.

APA URGES END TO PERSECUTION OF WOMEN

On anniversary of Boko Haram kidnappings, organization asks Congress to move on legislation, UN convention


WASHINGTON - The American Psychological Association marked the one-year anniversary of the Boko Haram abductions of over 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria by calling on Congress to take action to ensure the basic rights of women and girls worldwide to live a life free of persecution and violence.

"We must work to end the abhorrent prevalence of gender-based violence around the world, and to have systems in place to provide girls with safe access to educational and other opportunities for healthy development. We must fight to ensure that girls and women everywhere, including in the United States, exercise the human rights to which they are entitled," said Gwendolyn P. Keita, PhD, executive director of APA's Public Interest Directorate.

APA has urged its members to contact their members of Congress to encourage them to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, a United Nations convention adopted in 1979 that defines what constitutes discrimination against women and sets forth an agenda for national action to end such discrimination. Despite the great number of signatories among world nations, the United States has not ratified the convention.

APA is also urging its members to push for passage of the International Violence Against Women Act. This legislation would integrate gender-based violence prevention and response efforts into all U.S. government programming overseas and make ending violence against women and girls a diplomatic and foreign assistance priority for the United States.

One year ago, Boko Haram, a group of militant Islamist extremists, abducted 276 girls from their school in Chibok, Nigeria. To date, the whereabouts of the vast majority of these girls remains unknown. This tragedy highlights the ongoing global challenges that many children face—a lack of security, freedom, rights and control over their own bodies and fate.

"This appalling loss reminds us that violence against women and girls is a global health crisis and a human rights violation that contributes to political and economic instability. When women and girls live in poverty, have limited educational and job opportunities, are not valued within social and government structures, and become targets of violence, they cannot thrive and achieve their full potential," said Shari Miles-Cohen, PhD, director of APA's Women's Programs Office.

To mark the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of the Nigerian schoolgirls, a group of psychologists has crafted a call to action to the international community stated as concrete recommendations, grounded in international human rights standards and psychological science, to prevent, reduce and eliminate trafficking and other forms of violence against women and girls. Numerous APA divisions and the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology have endorsed the call to action. This effort draws upon APA's policies dating to 1988 related to ending human trafficking and violence against children by governments, and supporting the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child and human rights more broadly.

APA has also long supported the rights of women and girls to live free from persecution. In March 2014, APA released a Report on the Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls, which highlights the problem of human trafficking of U.S. women and girls, points out shortcomings in current policies and calls for more research and public education to address this serious international problem.

The American Psychological Association, in Washington, D.C., is the largest scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States. APA's membership includes more than 122,500 researchers, educators, clinicians, consultants and students. Through its divisions in 54 subfields of psychology and affiliations with 60 state, territorial and Canadian provincial associations, APA works to advance the creation, communication and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people's lives.

Bill Cosby

by Ree


Bill Cosby’s rise to fame is well documented, as are the myriad, detailed accusations of rape. These stories, dating back as early as 2000, began to flood mainstream media in late 2014, some days revealing as many as four separate accusations. They confounded an unsuspecting population causing immediate divisions, often racial, throughout America. Cosby's onscreen wife from The Bill Cosby Show, Phylicia Rashad, spoke out in early 2015. To explain away the accusational outpour, Rashad put forward a case of conspiracy. Someone - she wasn’t quite sure who - was very annoyed with Bill Cosby. This story, for Rashad, was ‘not about the women’ or the multiple accusations of rape but about ‘the obliteration of a legacy’:

"What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture."

Those who has been raped know why it took some of these women years - decades even - to come forward. Those who have not been raped but have a measure of empathy can imagine themselves in these women’s shoes. And then there are those who, against all theories of probability, have decided that behind these accusations lie a highly-orchestrated conspiracy in which women, in their 70s, 60s, 50, 40s, 30s were sought out to tell dated, seemingly similar stories about Bill Cosby raping them. As yet there has been no full explanation as to who could be behind this conspiracy and how this was made possible, but many still believe.

In her interview Rashad was speaking to those in American society who felt – and still feel - some loyalty to Cosby and his legacy and are deeply reluctant to let go of it. When she used the word ‘culture’ she was speaking most directly to the black community, for whom the Cosby legacy is especially important, for he served as an example of black leadership. His legacy is the legacy of black struggle, the mainstreaming of the black middle-class, and the successful nurturing of black talent in a deeply racist society. Cosby’s legacy so clearly embodies the many ambitions of African-Americans; it is the black struggle for the American Dream.

So when America’s dream - and black - dad is accused of sadistic, multiple-rape, it’s an American dilemma. What’s more, it is a black dilemma. And if you’re a Rashad, legacy comes first. At the time of this article more than 30 women have come forward with rape allegations against Cosby. Many argue that “we’ll never know the truth” and others that Cosby is ‘too tired to fight’. The more cynical state that the accusations were so long ago, even if true, he should be left alone. If the black community agrees, what would this mean for our future? And what would this mean for ‘the women’- especially those in the black community - who have dared to speak out? We need to ask ourselves whether the Bill Cosby legacy really worth fighting for.

Cosby, throughout his career, has espoused American middle -class values of meritocracy, college education, the individual pursuit of success. The Bill Cosby Show raised the profile of the African American middle-class, something which was embraced by all sections of society. By avoiding the topic of race, he posed a new alternative for African American success in a deeply racist society. This ‘no race talk’ policy also kept him in favour with the white ruling establishment. He was duly awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then President, George W. Bush, in 2002.

Cosby’s approach is reminiscent of ‘race uplift’ and/or ‘talented tenth’ ideology, with it’s ‘trickle down effect’ and ‘leadership from above’ ideals. This approach dates back to the early twentieth century, following America’s failed attempt to fully integrate recently freed slaves into society, and the death of the influential black leader Frederick Douglass. After the successful dismantling of the Reconstruction project by white supremacists the black community found itself having to re-think the possibilities of its future in an increasingly hostile and regressive society. The response of the black leadership at the time was to differentiate between blacks on the basis of class, thus establishing a legitimate elite that could educate, lead and represent the needs of the recently freed black population. This approach, however, needed financing, which only the white establishment could provide. And in return for funding, radical reform, like those proposed during the Reconstruction Era, would be dropped.

This model of black leadership was never seriously contested until a group of school students in Moton High School organised a walkout in 1951, calling for fully integrated educational facilities . This historical event marked a turning point in black leadership, and would launch the fight for integrated education in America’s South and lay the ground for the civil rights movement. This was a time when the fight for truth, justice and equality was made on the streets; it was a time when the success of the individual was so clearly bound to the success of the whole. This success was not defined and limited to a representative elite, but was the preserve of a whole movement.

This period of struggle was followed by the assassination of key leaders, i.e. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, and an increase in state brutality, and surveillance. The ideals of equality, truth, justice were swapped for job offers on equal opportunity boards, in government posts and in other areas of public service. Neighbourhoods were flooded with drugs and weapons and thus was the successful dismantling of another movement. Instead of championing the success of the whole, the black community was encouraged to once again champion an elite; if anyone, someone could ‘make it’ in American society, that would have to be enough. This tacit understanding has prevailed for too long.

In present day America, where success, money and celebrity are among the most rarified of things, reasoned judgement can all-too-often often give way to unreasoned incredulity, and in the face of a deepening of racism and the absence of a radical alternative movement, a dangerous level of group-think emerges; so when the individual success/legacy of a black figurehead is threatened, as in the case of Cosby, the instinct is to defend, regardless. Cosby was calling on this instinct when, in a quote for the New York Times, refusing to speak directly to the new wave of accusations made instead a demand on the black media:

‘Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.’

Many influential figures in the black community have hesitated in passing judgement and remained ‘neutral’ in the face of mounting and compelling evidence precisely because we know the particular ways in which a still deeply racist society like America treats black men in the judicial system and the history of the prison complex. Beverley Johnson spoke most clearly to this in her Vanity Fair article:

‘As I wrestled with the idea of telling my story of the day Bill Cosby drugged me with the intention of doing God knows what, the faces of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and countless other brown and black men took residence in my mind.’

But many have hesitated for another reason; the legacy of a Bill Cosby means so much to black America because there has been, for a very long time, no alternative to his approach to leadership, no sense that a whole community could make it, that racism could be overturned. A whole community was convinced into substituting its own success in place of a few individuals. And so any accusations against Cosby was, to many, an accusation against a whole community, precisely because his legacy was/is ours.

The black women who have come forward with allegations have had to fight a particular battle, for we know the consequences of telling on any male authority figure in the community. To then tell on a famous figure who has kept their part of the deal and ‘given back’ is tantamount to sacrilege. But to those with the same or a similar story, it is a major relief, even if this relief is acknowledged very quietly.

Having already decided to pay off the only woman who could take him to court, and refused to answer any more questions on the new rape allegations, Cosby has made clear his position. But there is still an opportunity for those in America who believe in the basic principles of truth, justice, equality and not only does this require calling a racist a racist, but it also requires breaking ties with the Cosby type of leadership and acknowledging a rapist when you see one.

Is Bill Cosby’s type of leadership and legacy worth fighting for? If it’s one that championed the rights and freedom of everyone, spoke about injustices like racism and sexism, and encouraged us to fight for ourselves then yes. If it’s one that avoided conversations on racial inequality, talked down to the community, and refused to speak the truth in the face of 30 plus allegations, then no. Those who truly believe in equality, that it’s still something worth fighting for need to break ties with the tacit 'defend the legacy at all costs' policy, for how can we fight for truth and justice for ourselves if were not prepared to have the same done for others?

(BPRW) New Toolkit Launches to Encourage Voting Amongst Black Women

Tools Provide Black Female Voters with Necessary Resources to Increase Voter Participation


(BLACK PR WIRE) – NEW YORK, NY (October 6, 2014) – Today Higher Heights unveiled #BlackWomenVote, a web resource for Black women voters. Higher Heights, a group dedicated to building a national civic engagement infrastructure and network to strengthen Black women’s leadership capacity, will use the next 30 days until Election Day, to encourage Black women to turnout in high numbers during the midterm election.

Black women are among the country’s most politically active citizens. In 2012, Black women had the highest rate of voter turnout of any group, and they represented almost 60 percent of Black voters who went to the polls. These statistics are clear evidence of Black women’s ability to be defining factors in election outcomes. However, in the 2010 midterms, just 46.5 percent of Black women voted. #BlackWomenVote aims to provide Black women with the tools to increase their turnout for the midterm elections.

The website and toolkit includes features such as; a “Pledge to be a Higher Heights Voter”, a “Personal Voting Plan”, a “Knowing your Voter Status” guide, a do-it-yourself “Sister-to-Sister Calling List”, as well as an “Activate your Online Network” checklist.

“Black women must show up to the polls if we truly want to create a more representative political body that will fight for pay equity, healthcare access, improved educational opportunities and other issues that affect Black women on a daily basis,” said Higher Heights co-founder Glynda C. Carr. “The forthcoming November 4, midterm provides us with the opportunity to begin addressing these issues and become more fully and consistently involved in the political process.”

“The Status of Black Women in American Politics” report released by Higher Heights earlier this year provides a comprehensive historical outline of Black women’s struggle for political representation and discusses the current landscape of political leadership for Black women across the country as well as their growing political influence. It demonstrates the need for greater engagement, recruitment, and inclusion of Black women in politics and government.

The report notes that Black women are 7.4% of the U.S. population and 7.4% of the electorate. However, there are only 14 Black women in Congress (2.6%), 2 Black women in statewide elected executive office, and 241 Black women in state legislatures (3.3%).

Follow the conversation on social media for the next 30 days at #BlackWomenVote.

About Higher Heights:
Higher Heights is building a national infrastructure to harness Black women’s political power and leadership potential. Headquartered in New York, NY, Higher Heights Leadership Fund, a national 501(c)(3) organization and its sister organization Higher Heights for America 501(c)(4) is investing in a long-term strategy to expand and support a Black women’s leadership pipeline at all levels and strengthen their civic participation beyond just Election Day.

BLACK FEMINISTS LAUNCH A CALL FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT NARRATIVES!!

TRUTH & RECONCILIATION COMMISSION CAMPAIGN


[September 29th, 2014 - New York, NY] Human rights organization, Black Women's Blueprint officially launched their Truth and Reconciliation Commission campaign. Black Women's Blueprint is a Black feminist community dedicated to providing counseling and healing services to people of color who have experienced domestic and sexual violence. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission aims to collect 1,000 stories from Black women about how sexual assault has impacted their lives in the workforce, educational settings, and general financial stability.

Farah Tanis, co-founder of Black Women's Blueprint states that "The Truth & Reconciliation Commission aims to engage the community with new and effective responses. The responses would promote accountability through targeted relevant organizing, designed to affect systemic change on particular laws and policies, which continuously fail to reduce the high incidents of rape on Black women in their communities."

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission utilizes multiple tools for Black women across the world to share their stories. First, Black Women's Blueprint's interactive website, MyFreedomLounge.com, allows survivors of sexual assault to submit their typed stories for other members of the website to offer support and guidance towards healing. Survivors are also able to text, record, or set up a time to share their stories either in person, if located in the New York City area, by calling the number 646-647-5414. The identities of those who submit their stores are kept in confidentiality.

Black Women's Blueprint's hopes to collect 1,000 narratives about sexual assault in correlation with economic injustice and to present the gathered information to the United Nations in 2016. The organization plans to use the Truth Commission to instill policy changes such as protecting survivors in the workplace by removing the 'at will' policy which could release an employee for no reason, although some women may be coping with sexual violence. Additionally, BWB would like the narratives to advocate for women on college campuses to have a complete understanding of their rights as survivors under Title IX.

Confrontation 9: Taking on the Challenges of Work, Family and Purpose


Dallas, TX, August 6, 2014 – Mother Teresa said it best when she said, "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Dilshad Dayani routinely casts many ripples of her own as she advocates for women around the globe through speaking engagements, community initiatives and her new release Confrontation 9: Taking on the Challenges of Work, Family and Purpose.

Dayani's message is one that every man, woman, boy and girl should hear. It's a message that explores the cultural perspective of success – questioning culture, customs, norms, traditions and unwarranted conformity. She lays the foundation of how genders define success and how culture influences those ideas. Additionally, she points out that compliancy can oftentimes stifle one's journey to success and that the transition from the comfort zone to the adventure zone is key.

"Breaking the glass ceiling,” says Dayani, "… it's something that is attainable for all women. Every woman has the power within her to be fulfilled, worthy, and self-empowered if she knows how to achieve her clarity of vision, purpose and values.”

Confrontation 9 offers simple strategies, designed to help women realize their true potential through motivation and empowerment, despite societal challenges and drive for approval. Dayani delves into tactics like finding confidence, and overcoming 9 roadblocks to break through stereotypical roles. The end result will be a legacy that every woman as a mother aspires to live and leave for her children building on through joy, enrichment and compassion on a daily basis.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Confrontation 9 go to World Women Global Council (www.WorldWomenGlobalCouncil.org) – an organization focused on empowering girls and women.

“Ending Rape 4Ever.”


In an effort to put an end to rape and sexual assault for good, EBONY.com launched the series, “Ending Rape 4Ever.”

Lori S. Robinson, author of I Will Survive: The African-American Guide to Healing from Sexual Assault is the special guest editor for the series. Robinson is a journalist and her work has been published in the Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post and several national magazines.

Having survived being the victim of rape herself, Robinson states, “As special guest editor of the ‘Ending Rape 4Ever’ series on EBONY.com, I’m again honored to have the opportunity to raise awareness and to promote the elimination of rape from our community—forever.” She continued to say, “I am committed to breaking the silence. One out of every six women in this country has experienced a rape or attempted rape. Rape is personal to a lot of us.”

In the first installment of the series, Robinson shares excerpts from her book, which sheds a public light on the pain and trauma rape can cause to an individual.

To read more, please visit EBONY.com. Readers can join in on the conversation, by tweeting their thoughts and testimonies to @ebonymag with the hashtag #EndingRape4Ever.

(BPRW) Women “Go Red” with the American Heart Association


(BLACK PR WIRE) – DALLAS, Feb. 10 – February is a month for matters of the heart across America, and it’s even a greater matter for African-American women, who are at greatest risk. The American Heart Association is impacting the health of women by saving 330 lives a day. Every February, American Heart Month, millions of women participate in the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement to increase awareness and inspire action in support of the estimated 43 million women affected by their No. 1 killer, heart disease.

African-American women are the most affected by the disease. Research shows that the leading cause of death triples among black women, killing nearly 50,000 every year. Given the shocking statistics, Go Red takes pride in commemorating its 10th anniversary of targeted programs, which includes efforts to close the gap among diverse women and decrease heart disease deaths by 34 percent in all women.

Like Keisha Hawes, heart attack survivor at age 31, many women never thought heart disease could happen to them - consequently, ignoring or downplaying the signs. Keisha says, "This was my warning sign that I needed to make big changes. Now I have the opportunity to do things differently rather than just dropping dead one day." Don’t let tragedy be your drive to “do things differently.” Let the stories of real survivors lead you to be proactive so that we can, together, prevent tragedy from happening.

Join the 56.6 million people who visit the Go Red for Women website, and most importantly, join the nearly 2 million who have registered to take action in the movement! While Go Red has made a remarkable difference, for over a decade now, the fact is that 1,100 women are still dying of heart disease, daily. It’s critical to know your risks, live healthfully and get involved, today! For more information, visit www.GoRedForWomen.org.

The brand can now be found nationwide at Target, Walmart, Sally Beauty Supply and other retailers.
