What other people are saying


To help stop rape, we need to start talking. By sharing our names and faces and speaking publicly about our stories we hope to shift the national and international discourse on rape and abuse.

"If there is one person who can make audiences accept and understand a public discourse on sexual assault, it is Anne K. Ream. She is an exceptional person who communicates with her audiences on a heart to heart level, and a speaker with the ability to convey what so many of us in the field of ending sexual violence and serving victims are trying to achieve. Articulate and engaging, Anne handles sensitive questions with empathy and diplomacy. We are very grateful that she accepted our invitation to lecture at the Clinton School of Public Policy during Sexual Assault Awareness Month."

— Helen Jane Brown, Executive Director
Arkansas Coalition Against Sexual Assault

"Charlotte Pierce-Baker, the featured speaker at our 5th Annual Valentine's Day Distinguished Family Violence Lecture Series, provided an eloquent and moving analysis of how rape cannot be eliminated without ending victims' silence. By telling her own story, and ending her own silence and shame, Dr. Pierce-Baker covered everything there is to know about what our society and culture are doing wrong in our response to rape and rape victims; her insights about the special plight of women of color were powerfully affecting. No one in the audience even thought about leaving and no one there will forget the indelible experience."

- Jody Raphael, Senior Research Fellow, Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center, DePaul College of Law

"Katie Feifer's talk at San Diego State University's 2008 Take Back the Night event was one of the most powerful parts of the evening. Those in attendance loved that Katie incorporated what she has learned from other survivors. It was great to see someone as strong as Katie acknowledge that she has days and moments that living life as a rape victim can still be hard. Katie tackled the tough issues with sincerity as well as humor, reminding us it's okay to feel a rainbow of emotions about rape at different points in our individual recovery process. Her talk helped the audience see those who have been raped as survivors, not only victims."

- Amber Guthrie, Chair, San Diego State University Take Back the Night 2008

"Anne Ream's keynote address at the End Violence Against Women International Conference was an important reminder that when it comes to violence against women, the free and paid media shapes public opinion and drives atittudes in the courtroom. By engaging the audience in real-world examples, and focusing on actionable ways that advocates, law enforcement, and policymakers can better leverage the power of the media, she provided tools we can use to change the way we talk about violence against women in the public space. Anne was dynamic and engaging, and her analysis of the current media landscape was spot-on accurate and insightful."

- Joanne Archambault, President, End Violence Against Women International

"When I first met Anne Ream, she was part of a panel discussion about female empowerment. I was in the audience, moved to tears. Anne Ream doesn't just give speeches. She bravely dives into the core of the most sensitive issues, peeling back multiple layers of   complexity to uncover the essential truth. Her intellect and ability to articulate this truth yields an authority that transcends knowledge, always delivered with compassion and thoughtfulness.  I  am in awe of her talent for creating deeply personal connections   around intensely passionate causes."

- Jennifer Severns, Founder, BoomGirl
