"Some women appear to participate in their own sexual objectification, claiming to derive power from different strains of Western sexual liberation. But instead of shaming women for making choices we don’t understand, Christians should be asking how a sexist, hypersexualized culture restricts and shapes women’s choices, and what we can do to correct that...
Women should not have to choose between objectification and invisibility. We must fight for a third view: God’s original vision for men and women, before sin was systematized in patriarchy...
Jesus turned hierarchical systems and Greco-Roman sexual politics upside-down. With Jesus, women felt truly seen; never leered at. Listened to; never ignored. Validated; never brushed off. Touched; never invaded. Invited; never avoided or excluded..."

As an activist, speaker, writer, counselor, and consultant, my mission is in advocating gender, relationship, and cultural revolution for a world without abuse.
I have counseled many individuals who have experienced some of the deepest, darkest, most horrific levels of violence imaginable. This has changed me. The victim/survivors I have worked with have made me the activist I am today.
I believe in social transformation and moving people for justice.
I believe in the beauty of vulnerability and the healing power of healthy relationships.
I believe that women have a right to humanity, dignity, safety, autonomy, and respect that is real.
I believe in men and their capacity to resist a culture of toxic messaging that says they cannot amount to anything more than rapists, batterers, traffickers, and johns.
I believe we can create a world where men's violence is no longer normalized as if "this is just the way things are."
Fundamentally, I believe this is not the way things have to be.
That is why I do what I do. I believe we must take responsibility and raise the bar.
As Andrea Dworkin said, feminism is a "movement against human suffering... the ultimate goal of feminism is to make feminism unnecessary."
