    What does Torture mean for Women & Kids?

    What does Torture mean for Women & Kids?

    Jeanne Sarson & co-author Linda MacDonald are feminists who have written, Women Unsilenced: Our Refusal to Let Torturer-Traffickers Win!" Have any of you good women and men ever known misogynists to be happy when good women refuse to shut up? So, this is more reason to invite you to travel with Linda and I and all the women who successfully and proudly journeyed with us throughout the pages of our book. I write about our book because it’s very much a part of who I came to be, how my life journey unknowingly prepared me to be able to tackle Unsilencing the Truth about the violent lives of Girls & Women while exposing the MO of those who thought they could forever manipulate society – they didn’t know that I learned at age three how to understand the manipulation tactics of a violent father. So, this is my story.
    Linda MacDonald, I have been fighting patriarchy since before I was born. My father kicked my mother down a flight of stairs when she was pregnant with me. I survived! My youngest memory is of me at age two knowing my father hurting my mother and I the night before was wrong. This little girl awareness set me on a path of fighting violence against women and girls for my whole life. I will be speaking out till my last breath! Today I stand with Jeanne Sarson as we expose the grave form of violence and human rights violation of non-State torture (NST) – the torture and trafficking of women and children by the everyday perpetrator. Jeanne and I have learned much about the MO of these so far mostly invisible torturer-traffickers. If you are curious at all join Jeanne and I as we share what we have learned and the solutions, we suggest.  You can read more about our work in our first book, Women Unsilenced Our Refusal to Let Torturer-Traffickers Win.

In 1993, on a leave of absence from Michigan, he rejoined LDF as associate director-counsel. Shaw was lead counsel in a coalition that represented African American and Latino student-intervenors in the University of Michigan undergraduate affirmative action admissions case, Gratz v. Bollinger.

    On May 1, 2004, Shaw became the fifth director-counsel and president of LDF after Elaine Jones retired, where he served until 2008. He then joined the law firm of Norton Rose Fulbright, where he is “Of Counsel.” Shaw is also professor of professional practice at Columbia Law School and has held rotating chairs at the City University of New York School of Law and Temple University’s James E. Beasley School of Law.

    Shaw has testified before Congress and state legislatures on numerous occasions. He has been a frequent guest on television and radio programs, and has published numerous newspaper, magazine and law review articles. He also has traveled and lectured extensively on civil rights and human rights in Europe, South Africa, South America, and Japan.

He also serves on the Legal Advisory Network of the European Roma Rights Council, and served on Wesleyan University’s Board of Trustees for fifteen years.
