Why Is Violence Against Women Still So Prevalent in the World?

  • Topic Info:Kelly LeBrock recently gave a talk at the UN about violence against women and why it is such an important topic to bring to light. 

    She is personally passionate about the subject, because she suffered from abuse at a young age; first physical beatings, then eventually rape.

    She remained quiet about this abuse for a very long time, but has learned that others can benefit from her coming forward.

    How can women start to heal and overcome the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from which many abused women suffer?

    LeBrock suggests transcendental meditation as one way to come to peace with the history of the abuse. This type of meditation is simple enough for anyone to do, and can help you sort through all of the past pain. 

    Tune in as LeBrock shares portions of her speech, her personal experiences with violence, and why this topic is so important and so very relevant.
