Today I got to hug and thank a personal hero💛: Ana María Archila - one of the women who confronted US Senator Jeff Flake in an elevator as he was getting ready to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. GRACIAS @anamariaarchila1 and Maria Gallagher for being so so fucking brave and cornering and speaking truth to bullshit power. Women like you inspire my work/life/purpose on Earth. #RebLaw25 #believesurvivors
There is no "perfect victim" or "perfect reaction" to sexual assault. It often seems that no matter what I do, it is not the right thing. Some people tell me that I just need to move on with my life, others say I am not "healed" because I keep "dwelling on what happened." People have told me to stop calling myself a victim and start calling myself a survivor. People have told me that I need to stop being so angry and that forgiveness is what will set me free. I am tired of being told by people who didn't experience what happened to me telling me how to respond. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR EMOTIONS AND REACTIONS.

Comment below ⬇️ how have you coped with unsolicited "advice" and victim blaming?
i did not post about this yesterday, but it’s been 1 year and 1 day since the parkland shooting. i’m absolutely heart broken over this and i cried about 4 times yesterday, just thinking about all the victims. have them in your thoughts. remember the injustice and use that as a fire. fight for them and all the kids who go to school scared. -

It’s not women who need to prevent rape! Women and men need to not rape! (More times then other men are rapists but women can be abusers too and men who have been raped are just as valid in this discussion) -

I can’t tell you how many times I have worn short shorts, and some nasty fuck thinks that means it’s okay to grope my ass! Most of the time it’s in a crowded place, so by the time I turn around to see who just grabbed me, the coward has already disappeared into the crowd! .

Someone a little more lighthearted! I think it’s funny when brands gender things that don’t need a gender.

The Cozy event turned into a bit of a “Meet the Stablers” night! In addition to meeting @isabelgillies (aka Kathy Stabler on SVU) I also had the chance to meet @allisonsiko who played Kathleen, Elliot and Kathy’s daughter. It was great to meet her too on this crazy fun night! It was really sweet to see a tv daughter supporting her tv mom! 💕 Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Cozy for a fun read and great tips on how to create your own “cozy” in all sorts of situations. Isabel and @therealmariskahargitay talked about filming the scene of SVU when Liv is driving, they become involved in a bad crash and Kathy goes into labor. Although they were stuck in a smashed up car filming for hours they were still able to create a sense of “cozy!” Go read the book!!! #mariskahargitay #celeriekemble #amanyarahotel #amanhotel #bestnine #aerinbeauty #endthebacklog #organization #badasswomen #mariskahagitay #peterhermann #iamevidence #kitchens #valentines #humphreymunson #kitchengoals #kitkemp #isabelgillies #author #cozy #lawandordersvu #oliviabenson #kathystabler #womeninhollywood #bffs #nyc #youmatter #believesurvivors #joyfulheart #mariskamagdolnahargitay
Grateful to have tabled at "Love Is Not Violence" last night with my zines and posters for survivors. This was my first time tabling as a visual artist. I gave 1/2 of the $ raised to the fundraiser for these rad local groups - Call To Safety, Rafael House & Stroll PDX. 
Feelin proud that I raised $40 for them 💞
I didn't get documentation of all the bands but here's a short video of @hella_tantrum who are a new pdx band and amaaaaazing. They'll also be playing tomorrow 2/16 at Blackwater + @withxwar 
Then a photo of @fatalstate who have incredible energy, politically charged hardcore.
@vendetta_pdx, Circle and the Square, A.'.A.' were all so good!
Shout out to my friend Allie for her support, getting me to safely to the show & back home ❤
Grateful for participating in an event centered around supporting women, femmes, nonbinary & trans folks, organizations that support survivors as well as sex workers and there were many discussions about specifically supporting indigenous and African women & femmes. 
More of this in punk & hardcore!
More of this everywhere! 🖤🖤
Been pampas grass OBSESSED lately ✨ #116Tribe #ShopForGood
New article: @laylawriteslove interviews child sexual assault educator @shariea_shoatz - @hautehijab featured Muslimah for the month.
“A child’s disclosure of sexual abuse can be daunting to parents,” explains child sexual assault educator, Shariea Shoatz.
“Most parents blame themselves for not protecting their child and in many cases are not certain how to respond when abuse is disclosed.” @hearttogrow #csa #believesurvivors #BlackMuslimReads

We struggled to find the words today. So read these from Laurier's Sexual Violence Response Coordinator at @consentisgolden. Rest in power, Riya.
・・・
After a day of supporting (mostly) women living with the impacts of men's violence... I feel at a loss for words in response to Riya Rajkumars death. So much solidarity, grief, rage and love for Riya Rajkumar and her family. I appreciate this simple statement put out by @azboodram. 
Want to do something about this? BELIEVE SURVIVORS, call out misogyny and rape culture, give money to women shelters and rape crisis centres, research and understand how racialized and indigenous women are at a higher risk of experiencing  gendered violence... because of the impacts of individual and structural racism and colonialism (not because racialized men are more violent), challenge your local politicians to demand action that is sustainable, stop asking 'why did she stay' and instead ask 'how can we challenge and hold him accountable for his behaviour', talk about gendered violence with everyone- but in particular the men in your life, BELIEVE SURVIVORS.

"Black History Month means celebrating representation in the black community. It means acknowledging the accomplishments of our leaders because without them, no one would have represented us, represented me. I mean for all I know without them, I probably wouldn't see women who look like me in 2019 making the kinds of strides that they're making." (GEMS Staff) What does representation mean to you? ⁣

My intention was to make this painting in one sitting and post it yesterday, to remind those without Valentines that they are not forgotten, not alone and are loved (no matter their circumstances). 🖤

But, I didn’t make it in time cuz life happens, and sometimes I feel like I’m just late to the game, but really I just have to push my anxieties out of the way which makes me feel late. 🖤

So TODAY!  the after after Valentine’s Day, the day after those of you coming off all your dopamine trips and the others who are finding cures for their loneliness. TODAY! Especially for you who feel unlovable, unseen and unknown, and alone, please know that is a big fat lie. 🖤

You are loved. 
You are loved. 
You are loved. 🖤

Everyday. 🖤

Ps:  There will be more of these little lovenotes.  The goal is to cover a large wall with them. 😆💌. #loved #lovenotes #painting #wordsmatter #youmatter #thisisapainting #wordart #acrylicpainting #metoo #lovenote #halfthestory #oktosay #hereforyou #lookforthehelpers #metoo #bethedifference #wagepeace #orangetheworld #wordsthatmatter #TimesUp #believesurvivors #SeizeTheAwkward #artaesthetics

The release of Ryan Adam’s forthcoming new album Big Colors has been cancelled following a string of abuse allegations made against him.
The record, which was due to be released on April 19th via his own label Pax-Am and distributed by Capitol Records, has been removed from the labels’ official website as well as iTunes and Apple Music.
Furthermore, major record retailers have begun distancing themselves from Adams’ planned release. Bull Moose Vinyl, a prominent retailer in America, said: “Please be advised the Ryan Adams album has been cancelled effective immediately. All pre-orders should be pulled down as soon as possible.”
The decision to pull Adams’ record comes after the news that five women had come forward as part of a New York Times expose, speaking on the record about alleged psychological abuse.
Of those to come forward, Adams’ ex-wife Mandy Moore led the alleged claims of abuse. On top of that, numerous women who have previously worked professionally with Adams came forward and worrying details of an alleged inappropriate online relationship with a 14-year-old female fan.
Following the expose, even more women began to come forward with their stories against Adams. Supermodel and singer-songwriter Karen Elson joined the growing list of women claiming to have endured abuse at the indie musician, she said: “I also had a traumatising experience with Ryan Adams,” in a post across social media.
“While I’m not quite brave enough yet to speak about my specifics. I’m encouraged that many women have bonded and helped each other heal. This is the power of sisterhood and I’m very grateful for these women,” she added.
“I hope all those speaking out are given the grace and dignity they deserve. The trauma that lingers is often a very powerful silencer of women as is the business that enables these men to thrive without ever facing consequences.”

12 years until the earth is lost as we know it.
31 years until there is more plastic in the sea than fish.

This is within our lifetimes, and we need direct action now.

The mood, always. 
Life is too short and precious to let ego/insecurity/capitalism override the overwhelming beauty of your sister's art and upliftment.
Remember when it was summer? My life is in a much much better place than it was last summer, but it's easy to lose sight of that when the weather is so damned miserable. We're going into the dreariest two-week period of the whole year: the second half of February🌫🌫🌫🌫🌫🌫🌫 I hate it here! I'm excited - in the most desperate and impatient kind of way - to experience a spring-summer-fall period with my life in this better place. I have stability and resources and support to grow Empath School for Arts and Magic. The directors of my former studio are doing work/investing in work towards being accountable for the harm they caused me and for keeping studio members safe. And I share a beautiful studio workshop/venue with two of the loveliest artists @artcaveto and it's on the best strip of Danforth and it's walking distance from my house and how is this my life?! 🌈✨🔥🍇💥🍭🎨🎻🌌🕍🎇💕 #believesurvivors
Vacation starts today. I’m headed to the desert for Presidents’ Day weekend. I’m hoping to catch some early desert blossoms and avoid any flash floods lol. I fell in love with the desert a few years ago. It’s a great place to reflect because it is so desolate and yet so full of life. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Take care of yourselves. -VU❤️💜 #vaginasunitedvu
Sexual assault and harassment are about power, not sex. What’s the most devastating way to take power over someone? Using sexuality as a weapon.
・・・
“Now women today, you know, almost a hundred years later, are asking to be safe and to be protected from being harassed and violated. That’s a huge devolution in my opinion.”
I couldn’t agree more. | What are your thoughts on this devolution? 🐝 #MeTooMovement #MeToo
"In order to recognize unhealthy norms that perpetuate harassment in the workplace, employees must be able to identify them. When everyone is ‘all in,’ workplaces can better confront situations and have conversations that help protect everyone’s dignity. Is your team “All In?”
Men get raped too. And unlike when sexists say it, we genuinely stand up for male survivors.
This is just one survivor’s story. Now imagine in a world of 7.63 billion people where 1 in 5 women are assaulted and 1 in 71 men are assaulted, how many more stories there are. #risingphoenix #nonprofit #sexualassault #rape #endrape #rapeculture #endrapeculture #empowersurvivors #humanrights #womensrights #mensrings #childsexualabuse #survivorsofsexualassault #believesurvivors #ourtimeisnow #timesup #metoo #metoomovement #injustice

It really does. But the thing is that you can't pursue happiness directly, all by itself. U need to pursue the lifestyle, the choices, the circumstances that will have happiness as a byproduct.

In our latest episode, we hear from Olivia. Olivia’s Story is one of courage, strength, resilience and hope. She takes us through her story of survival from sexual assault and an eating disorder and shares with us how she was able to break her silence and begin to heal. My newest episode of The Survivor Diaries Podcast is out now. I was blown away by Olivia’s strength in sharing some of her darkest moments with us and even more blown away by her honesty and courage. There is a trigger warning with this episode as it does deal with sexual assault and eating disorders. 💛 To hear her incredible story, be sure to click the link in the bio. 
An excerpt from Olivia's blog: "Most of my life I have been very quiet. My biggest defense mechanism is silence and passivity. I keep a lot of things on the inside. But I learned the hard way that this is not good for my mental health. So as I have started to process and heal from the things I’ve been through, I realize that my story is powerful. And I don’t want to be quiet any more. I kind of want to scream all of it out into the universe now.

This blog is what I use to process, heal, and share my story. This is where I’ve found my voice. I hope that you can learn or gain something from my words. Or that they are able to help you in some way."

You are able to choose whether you want it to be shared on our page or not. Your identity remains anonymous. The link to the google form is in our bio.
We had such a great time this week for with our Project #Changemakers class. We talked about sexuality and gender stereotypes as well as the recent Gillette Commercial!

I’ve got a question for you: 
how do we stop normalizing sexual assault? 
If we default to teaching 
sex Ed  and consent awareness 
that uses the framework “men rape and women have to avoid it,” where getting an A 
requires Womxn 
to assume the responsibility 
of not getting raped 
we will never end rape culture.
Or have systems that administer justice, 
or societies where men and Womxn are equal. 
We are never equal if 
We are responsible for our actions and the actions of others
You will never be equal if the harm done to you is your fault
We can never be equal if only one type of person is ever punished for male assaulters’ actions— and that type of person is Womxn. *Not all survivors are Womxn. 
the professor presented this  dynamic, which further silences male identifying survivors and survivors with femme perpetrators.
I’m off my soapbox now.
We just released two new blog posts!! In Erica Avey’s memoir, Vehemently Speaking, she 
boldly shares the intrusive thoughts and feelings that arose from hearing Dr. Ford’s testimony during the Kavanaugh hearing. This hearing did not happen in a vacuum and as a result, many survivors were forced to reflect on their own assault; however, Avey shows that these stories can create a community of empathy and support.

Bobbie Groth is a familiar artist and writer here at Awakenings. We are happy to showcase her essay, Out of the Night that Covers Me: The Creative Arts of Healing, in the Nightingale. Groth writes about her personal journey of healing through the process of creating. She says that the act creating art can help you “knit the bones of your soul together again after experiences of abuse”.
