Break the Stigma with Founder of Consent Parenting!
"Back with another segment but this is one of our special segments that we haven't done in many many months. This segment is a break. The stigma episode and in these episodes. We talk with amazing professionals. Amazing people out in the community globally. Who are doing things differently. Who are doing things to advocate and empower our community with education through the use of their voice and story so for today. I want to introduce you to our guests. Her name israel saliha ribeira. She is a consent. Educator abuse prevention specialist sexual literacy advocate speaker change agent and founder of consent parenting which will hear all about in a moment. She's the host of about consent podcast and creator of consent. Wear both of those are trademarked. By the way rosalia teaches parents particularly child sexual abuse survivors out to educate their children on body safety boundaries and consent so that they can empower their families to prevent abuse and break intergenerational cycles russell liaison mission to end child sexual abuse dismantle shame and help survivors heal and become drivers rosalia certified through the canadian centre for child. Protection's omit two kids program and darkness to light stewards of child program as well as the human trafficking prevention training program auld on watch safehouse project although leah was born in el salvador grew up in new york and now she resides in northern canada with her parents and three young children welcomed leah inc. You so much for having me excited to be here. Yes i've known you now. Maybe for a couple of years more so in the digital realm space though i was also a guest in your amazing podcast. That was probably maybe like nine months ago. I think so yeah. It was one of my favorite episodes because it was about very much the same breaking down the taboos dismantling those taboos that are so hard for people to talk about but some necessary so rosalia can tell us what is consent parenting. Yes so consent. Parenting is my online platform. Where i teach as i said child sexual abuse survivors who are parents. How to empower their families and they do that through workshops courses a membership in. This is really to help them. Have those conversations that they find. Maybe they didn't have that. Nobody taught them and of course because of their own traumatic experiences they may feel triggered by the content of of how to teach this so i helped walk them through that process of educating them so that they can educate their kids and dramatically lower the risk of those children being abused and being able to break those cycles. And what motivated you to create all your programs so when my oldest at the time was five sos about four years ago. I realized that i hadn't done enough at that point. They were starting to go into kindergarten. And i had like panic attack because as a survivor myself. I did not want them to obviously have that experience. I wanted to make sure that they were staying safe and realized that i had waited too long so i started educating myself about how they teach children abuse prevention because it was not something that my mom taught me. Unfortunately she's also survivor but she didn't. It's not that she didn't teach me because it wants to. She just didn't know. And i didn't want to be in that same position so i started educating myself and i had actually a lot of suppressed memories which i didn't even know about until i started learning about abuse prevention and these memory started to surface and i was getting triggered because diving into this kind of education. When it comes to your own kids you become brittle thanks. -iety and panic that. How are you going to keep them safe. So i would do the training myself. I would try to teach my child. I'd get triggered. I'd stop for a while and i realized that i really needed to step into my own healing journey. If i was going to do this and if i was going to do it right so i started doing some of that and as i was learning about the things that i needed to teach i realized that most programs were teaching you why it was important and what you needed to teach. But they didn't show you how to teach it like and there was no one that was even speaking to the survivor. Experience to say this might be really triggering. And here's how to navigate that so that you keep going so that you teach this comprehensively and so that's when i realized you know all of the stuff that i was learning in the healing that i was going through in the therapy that i was seeking out had all helps me to learn how to do this really effectively. And i saw the transformation my children and i started to realize that it was actually part of my healing being able to empower children. And then i realized like nobody was teaching this and nobody was talking about this from the perspective of survivor to talk to other survivors because unfortunately children of survivors are actually five times. More likely to be abused because their parents shy away from teaching this or altogether. Don't realize what the other risks are because they don't talk to other survivors about it. So i ended up deciding two years ago now to embark on doing this myself so i got certified and i got all the trainings that i needed to do. And then started actually innovating some of the products that i create myself for those two pieces like i would always hear create a safety network and it's like okay. How do i do that though you know so. I started creating that like exact process for parents to make it easier. My mission has been like. How can we make the easiest possible for parents to do it and also to be able to reach the spanish speaking community so i started also creating products in spanish which are all free all of the products that i create in

The stress economies in poverty. Rose this year. All those strains may come to bear on the region's political systems. Latin is about to have a bumper year of elections brooke.

America's going to shrink more than pretty much any other region in the world and a bunch of these countries in the midst of this chaos and trauma are going to be choosing new leaders to help them find a way through at a time.

"el salvador" Discussed on The Heat
"Extortion fees to the gangs. It doesn't matter what you do if you you own a coffee shop if you're a doctor or you're selling t shirts on the street. You have to pay them even Farrah's as media we had to make connections and even going to the safe house where Michelle was wasn't little risky for us. We had to deal with with the gang members and they checked. We were that we were or legitimate reporters but going back to the gangs. The government tends to accusa gangs of everything that's happening at Salvador. An I'm not excusing this group. This criminal gross by any means. But they're not the whole problem while I was there. There was a very prominent case been discussed local media. It was the case of Woman named Claudia Glad was raped by a police officer. This man is a serial rapist and he only got a prison sentence of six years ears. So what I'm trying to say with this is that yes. The gangs are a problem but also the impunity that most men. They think that they can get away away with Tweeden women this way. I'm not only talking about rape. I'm talking about just violence and you see balance at the workplace violence against women at school. It's pervasive I would say in all parts of society you didn't interview with a gang member an ms thirteen member called Brian. Let's listen to an excerpt. Jeff what he told you Brian as he chose to be called is a veteran member of MS thirteen. He served a long prison term. And he's now living at a safe house. I go ahead. Women are very fragile. Sensible defenseless one of the best and women can do is screen another another reason. Is that people's minds have changed after seeing so much violence here meet indicated. Women are also at fault here because addressed to provocatively and remember men are men Columbus home but it is it a matter of power is it for entertainment like no as far as I know I was a gang. Member gangs forbid rape later on. Brian admitted off camera that Hell could break loose if the girls discovered messing around and with other men or considered a cheater in that case. She's game and can be get great scored a lot to unpack thin needs. To what else did you learn from. Talking looking to broaden that was probably one of the hardest interviews at have had to do why because I could feel how Brian does not see women as has equal and when he told me that you know some women dress provocatively and you know men. I couldn't believe it. But that's exactly how they think women are in it'll target or they're very careful about how they dressed. They know better not to be too sexy as he mentioned. and they do see females males as fragile human beings. It is very much Easter culture. It's completely male dominated and UC again in different sectors of society. The problem that that I also witness is that women are not fighting hard for the rights. You don't have that many females in positions of power so it's hard for them to believe that they can change the system if you don't have a role model how oh can you believe yourself that you can effect any change in that kind of society. I was just GonNa ask you. The women who are victims of domestic abuse of rape Holiday tweeted in El Salvador and society. How they seen Many Times people say well it was your fault. What were you doing out late at night? Why were you wearing that miniskirt? Why were you drinking? Oh it happened because you were drunk. Those are the answers that I kept hearing Salvador Salvador But I do want to emphasize that. Not Everything is lost because women are starting to organize themselves especially in the poor neighborhoods and and they're understanding. They're trying to teach each other that they do not have to stay in relationships that are abusive that they do have other alternatives and and they can go to the legal system that that not all judges are corrupt so there is a change it's small. It's starting to happen but but women are still committed suicide in high numbers because it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. What about the church in El Salvador? The church which of course is very influential. It's very powerful. It's very strong Do they support these women or is nothing coming from them. Eighty percent of the country is considered Christian action and we saw the huge influence specifically of the evangelical sector in the poor areas of El Salvador. I I interviewed the pastor. Toby he has to Super Church with the super show very similar to the ones that we have here in the United States with a radio station. The T. V. Station the lights the music and when I asked him what was his stance on abortion even a young girl is raped. Should she have the child of the rapist. He said yes. So if you have that from one of the biggest most important leaders religious religious leaders of the country saying that on television e you can't imagine how women feel. Here's one loss clip of a woman name. Your senior descending cruise was a victim him of domestic violence for over fifteen years. Her husband hit her and raped her repeatedly during all those years. We see a we we are. I went to the police. I went to the nounce him but it would take me longer to low and accused him down for him to be set free. I will return home a few minutes. It's later he will be back there. He used to tell me if I wanted to kill you so what you know. I am ready gasoline. They will release him right away. Whenever I went to the station all beat up like Larissa? Michelle you're saying you also try to commit. Suicide does your rhythm mm-hmm Komo Vein to cover twenty five pills Johnson theater. I feel like a nuisance worthless myself. Esteem it was on the ground. Say this year I we just cried and cry. All the time on the European Union poised was the imple- listening to that story. There needs to a common as it in also. It's extremely common but what it's not coming about. Just India is her strength breath and the fact that she was able to overcome those fifteen years of violence She has a broken back there days that she's perfect and they're days that she he can walk but she realized that she was the only one that could truly fight for for her happiness for freedom and now that she's at a better better position with herself. She's helping others So that's why I keep saying that. Not Everything is lost in all Salvador Women are starting waiting to feel empowered. And they're finding that strength in the collective because they meet once or twice a week and they talk about author writes and how to respond when a man is abusive. How to deal with the police had to the courts and and try to get some justice for themselves yourselves so Desanta is that example of what can happen in El Salvador? And the hope that that this kind of society Eddie can change for the better as you point women organizing themselves to protect themselves. Is there any kind of access to outside help to social help to legal help to you. Possibly religious help In in the country the church does help the victims of violence and they do try to provide a safe haven and if this woman have no place to go if especially if they have children. There are several Women's organizations in the country an international organizations organizations Assisting women and trying to educate actually when you land at San Salvador's airport one of the first signs you see Eh. It's against incest which is also very pervasive in Salvador. So you see this campaign of educating men and also so educating women to change the psyche of society one final food from you anita the moving forward. What do you think needs to be done in? A country like El Salvador to address women's rights and protect them. Well one thing I do want to add on one of the purposes or goals when I did the story is for our international audience in our audience to understand why this women risk their lives with their children trying to reach the US border because when when you face a living situation such grim realities in Salvador and it seems to them that it's impossible to change why I would not try to leave that kind of situation and provide your children with a better life so for me. It's important to sure stressed that part of the story. This women are trying most of them to provide a better future. They don't want their children to be trapped in the same circle of violence that they were raised in. It's a thanks so much for talking with us today.

"He used to tell me if I wanted to kill you. So what you know. I am already gal supposedly. They released him right away. Whenever I went to station no beat up? They took over twenty five. Feels I feel like a nuisance worthless. I would just cry and cry all the time. In addition to having the highest rate of homicides in the World El Salvador also has one of the highest rates of violence against women victims of domestic abuse and rape. There have little recourse or hope to escape from a society dominated by gang culture machismo and finding digression towards women women. It's no surprise. Then that many women in El Salvador have sought more permanent solution. Sucide hello. I'm honored ninety. Welcome to the heat. PODCAST with us to talk about the plight of women in El Salvador is CG NITSA SORTA Peres. She'd recently produced a story for program. America's now which explores the lives of Salvadoran Salvadorian women trapped in an endless cycle of abuse and despair. And what if anything can be done about it. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. This is a very moving sad emotional story. What drew you to it in the first place but it definitely is and first of all as the Latino female it's important important for me to report our issues unfortunately We're neglected in the media. So that's why was important for me to pitch and do the story three and basically what learned from researching and reporting on this is that. I'm truly lucky that I was born a female further north Amin to Spain born in Salvador it is a recipe for disaster for any woman. How widespread is violence against women in El Salvador to put all listen perspective? A third of its population lives in extreme poverty. Most women do not have access to higher education and as you mentioned the country has been labelled as one of the most violent in Latin America. Mark it does have the highest rate of femicides in the region and one out of three women are raped and most of them at Home before the age of eighteen. So that's how bad the situation is the story that I did for America's now it opened up with letty said she she was. She has a twenty four year old woman that I met in this very poor neighborhood of San Salvador the capital of Salvador we. We're not able to go in with the cameras. We can only walk around with the phones. we were introduced to this area of the city by a pastor of Of An Evangelical Church and when we got into that little apartment it was it was very dark and there is this pregnant woman Worrying an ankle bracelet and she was pregnant with her second child on house arrest The first boyfriend the father of her first child used to beat her. The second one is in jail. She couldn't find a job and when she's telling meal this all of a sudden I asked her. Have you ever for attempted against your life. And she just broke down and said yes and she said several times when my boy sleeping for me I broke down with her because this woman is eight months pregnant while she's telling me this and I asked her. Did you think about the life that you're bringing rethink about the baby that you have in your home and she said but what can you offer him. I have no hope. So this is my introduction to you of what I lived during that week week and a half. I was reporting Justin this subject. You know you have to a to some of the conditions that led to the Steph affairs lack of education economic factors and the fact that in many instances these take place in poverty stricken areas. Talk doctors about the cultural conditions in El Salvador. The particular ways in which society behaves that have made this such a problem as I said women do not have access to higher education for females. It's really hard to find a job. So that's why they tend to stay in that cycle of violence. Let these hoes explained to me the twenty four year old woman that she tried to find jobs but they don't pay well true she became. The've that's not the answer but she was completely desperate. She couldn't find a decent job. Take care of her four year old and the baby that was on the way also when this women are become victims of violence unfortunately there double victimized by the system some of them the ones that are brave enough to try to go to the police or to the cord. Basically you need to be beaten twice to be able to be listened and open case against your perpetrator. This women have to be abused twice so they can open a case against the boyfriend or whoever it is that's raping them so it is the legal system it starts at home when they are victims of rape sometimes the mothers the onstage. Not Listen to this younger women the family what they believe is well if we try to imprison this man then. We're not gonNA have the breadwinner so they have to choose many times between justice and making ends meet so that's why impunity is so high in Salvador you don't need to you. Didn't interview with the woman called me show. She chose to protect herself in a certain way. Let's listen to what she had to say presumed per diem for our whatever in prison. I lost my baby another other baby that I was going to have then. I wanted to leave everything behind because of the sun that I already had and because of his father he was very possessive. Komo Seattle Komo Bosisio. You go all the things that were happening. That were not part of who I was becoming. I didn't want that life for my son Komo to how did you become again. Member your job when I got in. I was approximately eleven years old old. That's it yes. When I was six my mom left my dad started dating another man that that man raped my sister and me? I left the house. Thanks to some friends of the same neighborhood. They helped me joy they see Vietnam and quote a story there. What else can you tell us about her out? Michelle story encompasses everything. That's wrong with those salvador. As she mentioned she was raped at the age of eleven by the stepfather. She went to her mother. The Mother didn't believe her she tries to commit suicide at that age at eleven with her sister after they failed then they decide to escape the house and the only place where they could find. Some respite was at a gang members housed house. Call the destroyers house in Salvador so what this two preteens learn that house violence. That's how they learn to survive survive then. She tries to commit suicide again while she's living in bad house because she's forced to things she doesn't want to do even off camera camera. I asked her. Have you killed anyone. And she admitted that she had and she's crying at this point and she tells me but if I did not kill them they were GonNa kill me so when you are raising that cycle of violence the question that I kept asking all these other scholars and other people people that I met in Salvador were to you start is it. Education is it given more upward mobility to the society. Women seem. I'm not to have a choice in Salvador the role of gangs. Yeah you got gangs such as MS thirteen. Become a part of everyday life in El Salvador Lou. How far this gang culture accessible to aggravate the problems of gender violence? I think it's a symptom of gender violence. It's pervasive evasive. The gangs Basically Control Salvador even though the government would never admit that everybody has to pay.

Especially since the hissy she had never really been taught a what's history was taught was very sanitized it a disaster a lot of of cameras with very very disappointed to find this kind of this was about the time mona boyd first came to africa. She had just graduated as part of one of the first classes of african americans out of boston college. After the civil rights movement most africans when i came to this country would not admit that this stephen happen but that was overshadowed by the personal experience mona had visiting slave castles. We work hostelry generation. Try way to prove to white people that we will good enough. We were smarter that we need to be there but after i had gone through those castles i i think what you thought you just couldn't define me anymore to be honest with you.

I was able take let go that. Conscious thought about race is it rates is by color is it are they going to. I was able to leave that and it was like having having a psychic burden taken off of your shoulders and you could just move. Mona didn't realize she had more of that. Psychic burden to shed until a few years later in one thousand nine hundred four then ghanaian president jerry rawlings apologized for the african role in slavery and it just made me feel so much better i start feeling resentful you know towards africans about slavery now contemplating retirement mona's decided she wants to make a lasting change by adding to the small number of gun and business owners..

"Media has been very active on twitter lately. This video was actually a paid ad on twitter so a chinese state media outlet actually paid to put that on twitter her will as we already know twitter and facebook of come out and said that they're cracking down on accounts linked to the chinese government campaign against the protesters in hong kong. So what does this mean for beijing patrick here. We have twitter actually blaming china's government directly. I think that's why this is such a big deal. Twitter is called a state-backed information an operation. This is very similar to the accusations against russia during the two thousand sixteen race and they've said there's more than nine hundred accounts backed by china covertly. They say they're going after this. This is a quote from twitter larger spammy network of two hundred thousand accounts that are backed by china and so it's a direct acusations. It's not just as rap video. They're also memes. What are you seeing coming from mainland china in this meeting space. This is what twitter her has really tried to root out. We've seen these memes. Some are in english but most of them are in chinese and they will compare the hong kong protesters to cockroaches so they'll take some of the more prominent protesters and photoshop their heads on the bodies of cockroaches. They will compare them to isis basically to denigrate the protests and imply. They're not coming from a real place of grievance. What is the aim here by. The chinese government is hopefully to stop the protests and scare people or is it something else i think it might be something else because they're going after the chinese speaking world writ large all around the world and so i think they're trying to to nudge people who are on the fence. This is trying to get at people all around the world in the networks that china can't control remember twitter facebook that stuff's all cut off in mainland china anyway so they're trying to reach the chinese speaker in not just hong kong but taiwan in vancouver in sydney in london and new york work and they're trying to tell them more towards the chinese perspective and does mainland china have receptive audiences in australia and vancouver and new york.

"What we need is a more constructive russian approach. Maybe as ukraine gets stronger and more for stable and it's clear that russia's not gaining anything by this conflict that russia will be in fact willing to eventually negotiate. Solution is a hope that if an agreement on eastern ukraine is successful that crimea could enter the picture at a later stage well. I would hope that i'm i'm frankly not optimistic about that given what we have heard from the russians they refused refused to even discuss it so i think i think more like the situation with the baltic states where we had a situation where the soviet union took over their territory and tried to forcibly incorporate them into the soviet union. We issued a declaration in nineteen forty called the welles declaration where we've rejected that forcible takeover and his lasted a very long time but eventually the baltic states did get their independence back and i see parallel here with crimea. We're not gonna see quick movement on crimea but likewise no one is going to accept that has been taken over by russia and in the end of the day. I would expect that it eventually will become restored as part of ukraine crane. Just gonna take a very long time. I'm curious ambassador. How often do you consult with president trump and what what's your sense of. How trump would like to see the conflict in ukraine as well as the occupation of crimea crimea resolved well. I think that you know he said in his very first meeting with president putin that you grain matters and that this is in the way of establishing a better use russia relationship and that has proven to be true over the last couple of years that we haven't made progress anywhere as this is still still in the way so i'm in very close contact with the entire team. I've met with the president and we've talked through where we are. The president is very skeptical. Frankly that that russia has the intention to end. The conflict were walkaway <hes> or come to a real resolution but he's willing to keep the hand outstretched to try if russia's willing and that's what we need to be doing. There's a lot of engagement here and in addition to my efforts. We have a lot of other people that that are committed to this. <hes> i work closely with all of them and i think it is it has actually produced have say a a more positive result than some people might have thought a couple of years ago. If you wind back the clock and say well what were people asking in twenty seventeen there were asking whether the trump administration would recognize russia's annexation of crimea yeah or whether we would be lifting sanctions or what are the you would be lifting sanctions and would the trump administration be willing to lift the obama era arms embargo all of those things have taken place <hes> and they've all strengthened the situation for ukraine and made russia's invasion occupation less and less tenable ambassador kurt volker u._s. special representative for ukraine negotiations.

"And he said the hospital the whole story about cheap being abuse of hers that father comes out. So what happens is the stepfather Trump's up at the hospital and threats Imelda until her if you say anything about what I do to you that he's going to kill her, mother and civilians, and then because she was sharing a room with other patients. It was another patient the one who heard these threat untold enormous and say look three something wrong. He was threatened these gear, and when the nurse came and is a nurse. They had Bill some rapport with melda tells her why don't tell me, please what is happening. And then this one final she breaks down and confess and tells the story that he has been raping her for these long time, and even though the north Kohl's the prosecution say, look, we have girded these big him of rape. We need. To do something about it. They need reaction from procecures as to believe that she's just making up this story to try to hide the fact that she was trying to get rid of the baby. Oh, she was trying to terminate your pregnancy. So what was the melda Taj with a moment? Imelda get charged. Wade attempted almost side. Imelda was holding prison for more than a year before her case came to trial in December. Journalists Nina Lakhani has reported extensively from El Salvador. If the law several years, and she's seen the consequences of the total ban on abortion. So this is the law. This is a policy which has disproportionately affected poor women young they're poor. They're from rule areas. They haven't had access to sex education. Access to contraception has been really limited. They're the common themes Nina toll made that horrifying as it was in many ways Imelda story wasn't unusual foul Salvato. It's become one of the most dangerous and precarious paces in the world to be a woman and to be young person in general, what are El Salvador's abortion does so point nine hundred ninety seven you had to period of a few decades, where reproductive rights were becoming more open because there was a recognition by the medical and scientific community globally that in order to bring them maternal mortality rates and infant mortality you had to have choice. You had to have reproductive fights in one thousand nine hundred seven after what can only be described as shady campaign by the white wing ruling-party Renner. There was a reform proposed in congress to implement a total ban in abortions. And this was done. We've any consultation with the public no debate, no consultation with medical professionals about what the consequences would be that became law in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine thousand nine hundred nine which was really a critical thing the constitution was amended to define life from the moment of conception in. So since then so twenty years now, there has been no access to safe abortion in El Salvador, and that law has disproportionately affected poor women because if you have money you can travel to a neighboring country to excess eighth abortion. Howdy. React. When you have another case of another woman being taken through the courts for a miscarriage for having a child. I think just the cruelty of the way these women are prosecuted. There is an assumption of guilt. Some many of these women are prosecuted on the flimsiest of evidence use the discredited science, you'd get this really strong feeling that these women have one role in life to give birth to procreate, and the fact that they were unable to fulfill that bowl whether it be for medical complication for lack of access to anti-nato. They should be punished. In many cases, the Cohen was unable to determine the cause of death of the fetus, but is an assumption by the prosecutor energies, well, the woman did something to end that and that fetuses live. Nina, you've been reporting on Imelda quotas for quite some time. Now, what did you first make of her story? Every case reported on knife, probably reported on like ten women's cases. It's horrific. It's outrageous in its own way. But a mill case really has stories just so so cool on so many different levels. You know, a young woman who has been sexually abused by violent stepfather for seven years gives birth and these then charged with attempted murder the fear that young woman has been subjected to since she was little girl is so awful. But the prosecutors refused to see her as victim so year after Imelda was in jail..

Meanwhile, Turkish police have now arrived at the residence of the Saudi council in Istanbul to carry out a search over the disappearance and alleged slaying of writer Jamalco Xiaojie. They wanted to search yesterday, but they couldn't get permission from the Saudis. They weren't gonna clean, and I've been reading some of these horrifying accounts of the way was killed. I'm not buying it. It just doesn't make sense now it straight out of horror comics, and it may be true. But it just doesn't make sense though. From a practical standpoint of what they were trying to accomplish. To spend a great deal of time torturing this guy and killing him to get him out of there. Right, right. It's it's it's counter intuitive. I have a very strong feeling what's happening behind the scenes and everything Donald Trump. The president got from the apprentice, everything he said, everything Pompeo said all all fits in.
