To resist is cleansing. To be cleansed is power. Power is freedom.
Empowering Art. Bravo.

Absolutely Pam. And thank you from both of us.
A brave step, and one that is not easy. Excellently told, both of you.
Thank you so much Chris.
Reblogged this on The Brokedown Pamphlet and commented:
Our latest post on Hijacked Amygdala is a comic strip.
Oh Mark! I am so glad you did this. I absolutely love the art. The subject you chose is perfect. I think this is such a modern reflection of the old exploitation magazines – the positive side of them in that you graphically represent the reality some people go through. I found this really powerful and it just makes me want to see more of this from you – marvelous post!
That’s so good to hear Candice. Thank you.
Mark & C, don’t know if you saw this but wanted to clue you in – would love a photo from C and cartoon/artwork from you – doesn’t have to be unpublished – to go in anthology. If interested see below or email me
Good Afternoon Everyone-
Candice Daquin, Rachel Finch, Kindra Austin, and myself have put out a call for submissions that we hope you will consider. If these issues have not personally touched your life, we would be grateful if you would consider sharing this on your social media or passing this along to others who it may be relevant for.
Peace and Light,
Christine, Candice, Rachel, Kindra.
Time Sensitive Call for Submissions: “We Will Not Be Silenced”
Bruised But Not Broken, Whisper and the Roar, Indie Blu(e), and Blood Into Ink are joining forces to publish an anthology about the lived experience of sexual harassment and assault. We believe that it is more important than ever before that voices speak out and reclaim their strength by owning their survival stories. All contributors, female and male, can submit up to three pieces of creative work- these can include; Poetry, Prose, Essay, Short Fiction, Prose, and/or original Artwork, but should be limited in length (under 1,000 words) considering that this is an anthology. You will be notified if your work is accepted. Please do not consider nonacceptance as any diminishment of your experience, but as with any publishing venture, we must try to fit the individual pieces together into a strong whole.
· Submission of previously published pieces is acceptable if you still own the rights to your work.
· Artwork can be submitted in black and white OR color but all artwork should be black and white compatible.
· Using a pen name or publishing anonymously is acceptable.
All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, Monday, October 15, 2018.
Would you be interested in having Refuge for this piece. We do not really have a lot that would me your parameters other than this piece. We may have some abstract images which would reflect the narrative you are considering. Please let us know. Kind regards Mark & Christine
Yes!!! That’s exactly what I was thinking!!! Can you send it to the email address and I’ll upload it to the selection group I think it’s genius I’d love it. If Christine has any photos as well?
Thank you so much
I’d be so happy if you submitted though I think refuge is superb
