The Value of a Third Space with Sagashus T. Levingston

I am encountering woman after woman whispering or openly telling stories about their experiences with sexual violence. And while it would be inaccurate to say that this was the case with every woman, more women in this project are survivors than not, from childhood to womanhood. And the question is this: In what spaces are we addressing this? Through what policies? And what are we doing to address the violations that we have only come to talk about or quietly understand in in the middle of the night? Sagashus T. Levingston is the single mom of six, an award winner, cover girl, PhD Candidate, hot speaker and author of Infamous Mothers. About Infamous Mothers: We are teen moms, baby mamas, mothers who once sex worked and were addicted to crack. We’re not your average good girls. We are survivors of domestic abuse and sexual trauma. But don’t call us damsels in distress. We are women with moxie and grit--game changers and powerhouses. We did more than go through the belly of hell and survived, we brought something good back. Coming out on the other side as doctors, artists, nurse practitioners, homeowners, counselors, and so much more, we are 20 women who make a difference in this world. Read our stories and witness how.
