Why report rape through a criminal procedure when there's a 95% chance that the rapist will never even be arrested, and less than a 1% chance than the rapist will be convicted?

From June, 1962 through January, 1964, women in the city of Boston lived in fear of the infamous Strangler. Over those 19 months, he committed 13 known murders-crimes that included vicious sexual assaults and bizarre stagings of the victims' bodies. After the largest police investigation in Massachusetts history, handyman Albert DeSalvo confessed and went to prison. Despite DeSalvo's full confession and imprisonment, authorities would never put him on trial for the actual murders. And more t ...
 
Have you ever wanted to talk out loud about being sexually assaulted? Or has society taught you that you were not strong enough to handle it? What about other subjects like single parenting, gaslighting, or women and religion? I am the expert on my trauma and have spent 30 years in therapy for low self-esteem, low self-worth, depression, and anger – all while getting up over and over only to be beat down by the cultural norms. However, even after being raped, suicidal thoughts, sexual harass ...

This is a personal and raw episode where I share the story of one of my assaults. Coercion isn't consent. Two Hundred "No's" and one "Yes" is still "No". If you have a similar story, you are not alone and it wasn't your fault. It was rape. Your trauma is valid. Episode Notes: Consent: https://www.rainn.org/articles/what-is-consent Guest Interview w…
 
I got depressed this week, didn't even do my Wednesday episode. The politics of vaccines, mask fights, people judging each other on whether or not they like Trump or republicans, are the democrats more caring, will doctors really stop treating people without a vaccine? We talk about freedom to choose and yet we are still battling the issue of abort…

When I reached out to my marketing team months ago, I was trying to better understand hashtags. The ones I chose were good, or so I thought. What I have learned when doing research on - what are the most popular hashtags for women - I was blown away. amberbskylar.com - contact admin@amberbskylar.com #voiceofamber #voicesofwomen #womensrights #metoo…
 
War is going on all over the world and with it comes rape of women and children. Not only do we keep women uneducated in some cultures like the Afghanistan Taliban regime,(Islamic militants) we use them like Mommies to cook, clean, and make them cover themselves all under the name of "God" or Allah - or be subjected to stoning, jail, and beheadings…
 
A good thing about 2021 is that we have more vehicles of communication than ever before. I am 59 now and my entire life I've felt like and been treated like a second class citizen. When you think about this stuff alone, you feel alone, and maybe even crazy (in the negative way). But more and more movies and documentaries are talking about #metoo #w…

I do not believe that I need to forgive anyone who has hurt, abused, disrected and harmed me in any way. I sometimes think that forgiveness is used as a cop out - for example, trying to get victims to look the other way, like religious leaders who have asked victims to talk about what happened and then to forgive their attacker. Victims have been e…

Nike created an ad campaign called #Dreamcrazier - Just do it inspired by the treatment of female athletes who get emotional. I'm so tired of being told that I am "dramatic" because I express emotion. Not just by men, but by scared, compliant females who need a man to complete them. Even my own brother tries to diminish my expression of anger and c…
 
Predators seek out vulnerability. Society starts training females at a young age to be sweet, feminine, naive and charming. We are trained that we are not strong enough to hear truth about whats going on with violence against women. We are not encouraged to fight violence with violence. Why? A woman alone, carrying groceries to her car at night. A …
 
For a very long time now, females have learned that one of the ways to survive or to achieve more success, they had to be "good". What does that mean exactly? Maybe it helped generations of women in the past, in terms of survival, but will it really help future generations? I think not. #amberbskylar #voiceofamber #veteran #metoo #ptsd #mentalhealt…
 
I'm tired of apologizing for things that I do not need to apologize for. Women have a tendency to quickly apologize for too many things. I realize after doing this podcast that I have been apologizing my entire life for just being female. Even though at times - I'd be burning up with rage or anger for some injustice and I'd hold it in with an apolo…
 
Sage rejoins me for this episode as we laugh and cover some pretty intense subjects. We discuss post-trauma kink shaming, sex, sexuality, and physical responses. We are sexual beings and trauma can affect us all in very different ways! You are valid and however you get down is valid as long as you're not harming others without their consent! Episod…

I've had the hardest time actually accepting that I am disabled from Chronic Post Traumatic Stress. When I hear words like "mental illness" even though I know its not an illness, I have cringed over the years of my growth, telling myself I was going to "fix this". I actually had a plan to clean myself up and change - just like that. Only recently, …
 
I cannot wrap my mind around the sale of happiness. It's everywhere. It's in our constitution - the pursuit of happiness. What is striking to me, is that we do not sell or market/promote our right to feel safe, to face our emotional pain without scrunity, judgment, and shame, and its the excruitiating amount of time it takes for human evolution to …
 
In the fall/winter 2022, I will be organizing a few events, perhaps a live call in event, and introducing 2-4 guests per month. I aspire to have a few series on Women and Religion, Religion and Sexual Violence, different types of trauma, like Institutional Trauma, Trauma and Substance Abuse/Use, Military Sexual Trauma, Sexual Trauma and Legal Syste…
 
As angry, depressed, triggered as I am, I feel it is vital, essential that victims rise up and claim their life back. How? Your voice. Your written and spoken word. Your actions in going after your abuser or attacker. Calling the police, filing reports, getting involved in victims assistance programs. I have said this over and over, it is hard eith…
 
I heard this term PTSG from a friend. It's a term used for positive experiences associated with growing from PTSD.

I've mentioned several times that I would talk about my choice to podcast and what motivates me to be so open. Im just tired of holding in all of the thoughts and emotions I have, as a mature women, determined to add my voice to the women's movement. Not perfect, not an expert, just a person listening to myself, looking at my life, looking at the w…
 
Letters for the Fire is an invitation for survivors to write a letter to their rapist or abuser and send it to me. It is one of the deepest honors of my life to hold this space. I want to find more ways to help facilitate healing, to help survivors find their strength, and to help them feel connected, seen, and held. Letters for the fire feels like…

I've been confused about feminism most of my life. Fear of rejection, judgment, retaliation. Fear of being left out. Fear of being harassed, hurt, stalked. Now after researching and learning about the powerful women before me who stood - alone - on the human playing field of life, I feel inspired to own my truth, accept responsibility for the outco…
 
I'm all over the map on this topic. On one hand I know that females are not raped because of their clothing even though historically we tried to make the victims responsible because of what they were wearing. It was (and sometimes still is) a highly effective prosecutorial strategy to use against a rape victim, but I personally believe and especial…
 
Did you know that in the 18th century, we used to put a hinged iron framework around a woman's head which gaged her into submission and silence? It was used to publicly humiliate her and to teach other women to keep their mouth shut. Is this hatred, fear, ignorance? How could a civilization be so cruel and do you feel better knowing we don't do it …
 
It's important to keep your eyes wide open, in anything really. Yoga is just one activity that is easy to target people because of our romanticization of how things are done in the East. Most people believe yoga came from India. It did not. Furthermore, stop glamorizing India. Its treatment of women is deplorable. It was women who brought yoga to o…

Join us for a chat about our thoughts on forgiveness, righteous anger, and a phrase that personally makes me want to vomit: 'Hurt people hurt people'. Like, unless you're a literal 5 year old, just stop. Thanks to one amazing supporter for this topic idea, and to Lauren for sh…
 
We hear so often, that "love is the answer" and yet with the human capacity to love we still live in a violent world. How many times have you felt like you were "in love"? How many times have people told you that you have no choice in who you choose to love? Fate? Or are we limiting our ability to make choices based on fact, need, passion, and our …
 
Times have changed but "romance" is still in its infancy. Laws have changed but some states still hold to the religious ideals about marriage and how it's supposed to look instead of how it actually is. Men still blame women and women still blame men. Stop blaming and get smart before you get married. #amberbskylar #voiceofamber #metoo #ptsd #anxie…
 
Have you ever felt you were being manipulated but did not listen to yourself? Have you ever felt like you were paranoid or crazy because you have a gut feeling, intuition, an inkling that something is off and you can't quite sort it out. Years ago, it was very easy to force a woman to comply as a housewife and mother by threatening her, telling her…
 
Have you noticed that when women have supernatural experiences we mock them. But a man named "Moses" for example can climb a mountain, have a supernatural experience and bam - he's an angel of God. Women have strong intuition, premonitions, dejavu, dreams, unexplained experiences that are minimized by the social order of religion and the sciences. …

NJ shares the difficulties of growing up with an alcoholic father, his struggles with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts, and how he has transformed former areas of insecurity into strengths…
 
We really like to judge people when they cry. We stuff the emotion and it is stored on our body systems. No joke. In 2008 Rose -Lynn Fisher started a project to look at the molecular structure of tears and made a huge discovery. How long have we been shaming males for crying and judging women as "too emotional". Nonsense really. #amberbskylar #voic…
 
I have strong personality. Being assertive and female has its own set of rules, even today. Yes, its changing as more women get into leadership roles and our environments still have engrained messages in our social landscape that attack our nature as females, whether we are strong and powerful, or quiet and accommodating. Confronting situations and…

I have learned how easy it is to get distracted. For women, I think its even easier because we are marketed (subliminally and overtly)to "have it all" and we deplete our resources by over committing, not using that road sign of "no". Even relationships can be a distraction. Social messages have been engrained in every sort of media, encouraging us …

Don't be a victim of accidental or irresponsible pregnancy. As women we have choices now. To raise is child is emotionally, financially and physically demanding. If you have the money to bring a child into the world, and a support system, and you actually are ready to have a child - go for it. But if you have not completed your education or created…
 
Who taught you about having good boundaries especially when it comes to relationships? Why are we as women, still seeking a man as a protector, provider, even helper with the home and children? What about getting involved with strangers from online dating and not thinking about safety, but just sex or comfort, hoping for love and relationship? At m…
 
I have learned or been exposed somehow to this notion that - No just means, "ok, let's turn around, let's go around, let's find a different path." However, "no means no" as it applies to rape, or "don't call me" are real boundaries. This episode refers to no as you did not get the job, or "no you are not invited," or "no we don't like you". I have …
 
In this episode we'll explore RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. We interviewed Heather Drevna, VP of Communications, about RAINN's years in progress, how the focus has broadened over time, and challenges of the pandemic.

Imagine being raped, the rapist agreeing to a plea deal and getting convicted, and then a judge "misfiling" some paperwork so that all that trauma only led to a rapist going free without a trace. Taelor tells the story of how this exact scenario happened to her, and also talks about her journey to healing and the work she does now to help others pr…
 
I believe depression is a part of over-hoping that things will/may get better. It's a passive expectation or desire for change. This PODCAST highlights human and civil rights people who understand reality and that action is the path forward. Action will keep the flame of hope's possibility from fading.…
