HLN Anchor and Advocate Richelle Carey takes a stand against domestic violence, sexualization of girls, sexism and victim blaming


Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) — HLN’s Richelle Carey has recently launched RichelleCarey.com to provide a place where women and their supporters can have a genuine conversation about the challenges and triumphs of women and girls. RichelleCarey.com highlights critical issues facing women and girls including domestic violence, the sexualization of girls in the media, sexism, victim blaming and much more. As an advocate, Carey wanted to create an online community that fosters conversations about the issues that affect us all and also celebrate the everyday accomplishments of women around the world.

“We have a responsibility to each other-especially to young women to speak up about critical issues we face…domestic violence, sexualization of girls in the media, sexism, victim blaming and so many other topics. My hope is that when women or men come to RichelleCarey.com, they will learn new things, gain new perspectives, and feel empowered because of that knowledge and those connections,” said Carey.

RichelleCarey.com (www.RichelleCarey.com) touches on many pertinent topics through its sections, such as the We As Women page, a place where women who have impacted lives can be honored; the Violence Against Women page, where visitors can find critical information about myths concerning violence against women and ways they can help end the violence; the Our Girls page, which challenges the sexualization of women and girls in the media and culture, and how the youngest are suffering the most. True Allies, which recognizes men who are part of the conversation in ways big and small, and working to make safe, just communities for women and girls; and the ESSENCE page which features stories from the What Matters segment that airs weekdays during Richelle’s HLN newscast. These stories highlight issues in African American community that affect everyone.
