I’m trying to recover from the worst thing that can happen to a woman: Rape. Because I was totally ignorant about the subject, my new mission in life is to help educate others. Women keep arguing the pros and cons about whether it is best to be passive. Some advocate letting the rapist have his way, hoping to avoid a beating or worse. Others believe they should fight back, on the outside chance that they will get away. But no matter which course a woman chooses, she must never lose sight of the fact that being raped is not her fault.
A traditional source of strength, the church, is viewed by some victims as not being a viable option anymore. This is unfortunate. I didn’t want to go near a church after I was raped because, according to my early religious training, there were only three types of women – virgins, wives or whores. No provision was made for victims of rape. I thought that was where I stood with God and spent many years punishing myself for having “fallen from grace.” Then one day it dawned on me that those teachings were the work of people, and that God did not blame me for being a victim.
