One Woman’s Triumph: Courage Empowerment Forum Welcomes Sexual Assault Advocate and Author Sophia A. Strother

FEATURING THE MUSIC OF VARIOUS ARTISTS

“By the age of sixteen I felt like a washed up rag. I felt like – what else!” Those are the words of Sophia A. Strother quoted from her book Sophia I’m Back! Her young life was not only hard, it was tragic, having to suffer indescribable torment by a sexually abusive father and subsequent rapes by three men. She later became pregnant at 15 but not withstanding other struggles. Sophia’s life appeared to be wrecked and ruined but through her faith, it never succumbed to that devastation.

Now she is the founder of Empowerment Driven by Knowledge Coalition, an organization whose mission is to empower others to survive and overcome. Sophia is also the CEO of Trustworthy Consulting. An inspirational and motivational speaker and consultant, Sophia works alongside Martin Luther King III and many other well known names for the embetterment of people through community based programs and events.

Tune in Tuesday, July 19th at 9 PM Eastern, 6pm Pacific to www.party934.com, 94.9 FM Hudson Valley, NY to hear sexual assault advocate and author of Sophia I’m Back! Sophia A. Strother, and learn more about her amazing journey from survivor to thriver.

  1. It is so refreshing to read about strong women/ men who have climbed the ladder from victim to survivor! Yes, I have been there and have written a book titled For Worse Never Better: Diary of An Abused Wife and Escape to Freedom. Empowering victims of Domestic Violence is now my full time occupation. I was in a violent marriage beginning in 1967 when it was a closeted issue. To understand what I was living and why, I kept a diary which I now want to share with everyone.

    I am a volunteer guest speaker for Chrysalis Domestic Violence Shelter. Fifty percent of all proceeds from the sale of this book is being donated to the shelter. We can all work toward ending domestic violence. Wel have the strength inside ready to be used, to help those in need,

    Sophia, you are an incredible woman! On behalf of all victims and survivors , thank you for your strength and dedication.
