#NastyWomenVote & Surviving Survival w/@MaureenShaw & @NARAL’s @ilyseh — #KatieSpeakShow Ep60 10/29/2016

In brief: I’m really excited about this show. I’m pleased to bring you writer Maureen Shaw who has an essay in an amazing new book about moving past just surviving following sexual assault/abuse as well as Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America on the election, enthusiasm, and ramped up misogyny.

  1. Katie! Thanks for having Maureen Shaw on your podcast–we are dismayed that current politics are so !@#$ing horrifyingly triggering for survivors… You have opened this episode with what I’ve been wondering: how does the media continue the trauma? We’re so glad that @animalmineral press can offer a positive light for survivors with the book t(hat includes Maureen’s essay) Making Out Like a Virgin: Sex, Desire & Intimacy After Sexual Trauma
