In light of recent events over the last several days regarding the release of Bill Cosby from prison as he was serving a 3-10 year sentence for sexual assault and rape, t
here have been comments on both sides either agreeing or disagreeing with his release. The comments have been disparaging and disheartening to read, especially when it comes to blaming and shaming the victims. It is important as women that we learn how to come together and exercise support, empathy and sensitivity to each other, even if there may be a difference of opinion.
This blog and podcast episode is a special one, as it deviates from our normal platform and subject matter. The views and opinions shared are personal. This is in no way giving any sort of legal or spiritual advice to anyone who's been a victim of any sort of Sexual Assault, Rape or other forms of abuse. If you have been in a situation of such, it is advised that you contact your local law enforcement agency.
