Reminder: Domestic Violence Wears Many Tags Presents “Brokenness to Boldness”

Join QueenAfi as she interviews Ashley Strange a native of Washington, DC where she attended public schools. Ashley was forced at a young age to grow up due to the lack of emotional support from school. There were times she felt alone, she felt that no one wanted to help.

Ashley was placed in special education classes with students who had mental and behavioral problems. She learned very little in these classes and stopped going little by little. After the death of her mother she gave up on school completely and became a product of the DC foster care system.

Now, she is an upcoming college senior at Trinity Washington University. How did she do it?

Women Conceal Pregnancy To Avoid Job Discrimination

Three Day Rule CEO Talia Goldstein was hiding her pregnancy because she was at risk of being discriminated against.

  • Despite the law, pregnant women still get discriminated against in the workplace. This is why one CEO…

    It’s sad that women have to hide something so wonderful in order to get a job. The fact that women have to do this means that nothing has changed from many years ago.
