Deborah Howard will share from her memoir, Mystery of Memory: Telling My Truth; Standing My Ground, her story as an incest survivor struggling to overcome self-doubt, find her voice and believe in herself. Deborah’s story reveals a personal journey of how families and society actively deny girls and women their voice and invalidate their reality. It parallels stories of other sexual abuse survivors whose truth is denied and whose voices are silenced by society.
