Kimberly Corban: Don’t Weaponize Sexual Assault Survivors

Gabriella Hoffman
by Gabriella Hoffman Read Profile arrow_right_alt

Motivational speaker and survivor Kimberly Corban-Rourke has a bold message for politicians, Democrat and Republican, who wish to politicize sexual assault: Don’t weaponize survivors and their stories.

With more politicians being caught up in #MeToo scandals, it’s a perfect reminder for observers to not weaponize or politicize sexual assault and their victims.

If you recall, Corban rose to prominence for helping convict her rapist and famously challenging President Obama on guns at a CNN town hall. She is highly sought-after for speeches on her story and is someone you should cite when discussing this issue.

Watch her December 2018 TEDx Talk on the subject.
