Introducing myself and my journal: Women and the World

Posted April 13, 2013 from United States

About Me:Hello! I am an undergraduate senior at the University of Oregon. I will graduate with my B.A. in General Social Sciences with a concentration in Crime, Law, and Society this June. I am interested in discussing intersectional feminism, human rights, and survivor support and prevention. I am also interested in discussing how art forms can be used for activism. I strongly believe in the power of the personal story.

My Passions:physical and sexual violence support and prevention, human rights, sociology, poetry, and photography

My Challenges:Facing fields of denial and opposition.

My Vision for the Future:A world that is hostile to none and respectful to all. A world that educates and supports survivors of all types of violence.

My Areas of Expertise:physical and sexual violence prevention and survivor support, sociology, feminism.

    Hi Debra!

    I'm so sorry for the long extended delay in my response, but thank you so much for all of the resources and for your welcome! I have read your biography and am incredibly inspired by all of the work that you have done. Thank you so much for sharing your story and for helping to empower survivors all over the world. I noticed in your bio that you have work experience on the topic of human trafficking. I will be helping to put on a speaker panel on the topic of human trafficking next week and would appreciate any guidance you may have on possible speaking topics. We will also be conducting a workshop with out speakers, so if you have any recommendations for constructing that workshop, I would love to hear them! My email is

    Once again, thank you so much for your extensive advocacy, activist, and educational work. I look forward to hearing back from you!

    Sincerely, Lauren Frei
