Photos by Kobi Suzannah B. Troy Rape Protest by Now Suzannah Focuses on Rape Cop Lawyers and Women Who Did Not Survive Rape: Imette St. Guillen Joe Tacopina Chad Seigel Laura Garza

We pulled down my shirt over my big black belt that says New York and it says Violence Rape Murder from Babies to Grannies global crisis

Jennifer Moore under age and drinking, like Imette  and the NYPD Rape Victim she walked out on her own sadly and unlike the NYPD rape victim she did not live to tell her story, to have a life, too grow old.
Sickening to have Tacopina representing Imette. Imette would object if she was alive but she died a horrific death nothing as awful as the NYPD Rape Victim including Joe Tacopina and Chad Seigel’s treatment of her.  Listen to the gentleman to your left’s speech in my YouTube from today.  I am very tired.  Kobi sent me many photos and I would be up all night uploading and labeling them and I don’t have the strength.   Kobi is a beautiful soul inside out.
Thanks for your beautiful hard work.  There are so  many other photos.

There is Tish James and I wish I had captured her speech.  It was fantastic!  I tell you briefly about it on my YouTube.

Laura Garza  Today’s protest was about stopping the violence but they Women left us too soon and in the most horrific of ways I wanted to honor their memories 

Yu Yao’s name is on my shirt many places and on both arms....unlike the other women she was not out drinking....she was just walking and was randomly grabbed by her hair and dragged in to an alley way, rape and murdered.   She is the most recent victim of a  violent rape and murder  that I am aware of.

Max for Moreno Mata

Amazing Joe Tacopina dropped 2 x rapist murderer Van Der Sloot...?

The sign in the center says NYPD COERCION PERJURY ---- see that the sign says PERJURY!

Not Dead Yet A Film Screening Presented by Paradigm Shift NYC Feminist Community

“Not Dead Yet” Coming to Screening of This Film July 6


A Film Screening & Discussion to Unite the Generations:
A dramedy about life, hot flashes, and profound re-awakenings!

SUSAN HESS LOGEAIS, Writer/Producer/Star
JENNIFER L. POZNER, Founder of Women In Media & News

NOT DEAD YET brings a dramatic new perspective to a range of women’s issues rarely embraced by American cinema. 

Three women join forces to revive their acting careers, only to find themselves on a quest for something far more important.  Frustrated by the lack of roles for women over 40, they decide to create their own film, starring themselves.  As the project spins out of control, so do their lives.

Best Feature - Rhode Island International Film Festival
Best Narrative Feature - Baltimore Women's Film Festival

Prior to leaving the entertainment industry in 1990, Logeais had accomplished in 15 years what few people achieve in a lifetime. Beginning at the age of 17, the classically-trained ballerina spent a year performing with the Santa Francisco Ballet under Artistic Director Michael Smuin. 

Then, in 1978, the teen began a seven-year stint during which she graced over a dozen magazine covers.  In 1984, Logeais scaled back her modeling to pursue her passion: acting. During the years that followed, she co-starred in four network television movies, a Sidney Sheldon mini-series for CBS, and episodes of “Miami Vice,” “Knightwatch,” “Spencer: For Hire,” and “Christine Cromwell.”

Finally, after years of being in front of audiences and the camera, Logeais decided to step behind the lens, and began learning the craft of screenplay writing. At the same time, she formed her own production company, Two Chicks with Cameras, and co-directed and produced a series of short films. 

Then in 1992, her body rejected the breast implants she had gotten 8 ½ years earlier. Realizing how she had unwittingly inspired other women to follow her example, she convinced Allure magazine to chronicle her surgery and recovery. In addition, she appeared on a local LA television program to share her story.

Teaming up with local talent and crew, she produced her screenplay “Not Dead Yet”.  Her goal in producing the film was threefold; to see one of her screenplays produced; to star in a feature film; and to produce a story that would encourage women over 40 to embrace themselves and the wisdom their age represents. 

“Not Dead Yet” was completed in early 2009 and has since screened at numerous film festivals, winning Best Feature at the Rhode Island International Film Festival and at the Baltimore Women’s Film Festival.  Subsequent projects include a short documentary entitled “Nerves of Steel, a year with The Portland Ballet,” which she recently completed; “Clay In Their Hands,” a documentary focusing on the importance of valuing women and children that is in production; and “The Emerald Tree,” an illustrated short story that is in development.  

Jennifer L. Pozner is founder and executive director of Women In Media & News (WIMN), a media analysis, education and advocacy group. She is also managing editor of WIMN’s Voices, the popular group blog on women and the media. Her book, Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV (Seal Press, Nov. 1, 2010), grew out of WIMN’s media analysis program.

A widely published journalist, Jennifer serves on the board of editors of In These Times magazine. Her work has appeared in corporate media outlets such as Newsday, Chicago Tribune and the Boston Phoenix, independent magazines such as Ms. magazine, The American Prospect, and Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, and online media such as WomensEnews, AlterNet, and Salon, among others. Her essays have appeared in numerous anthologies. Additionally, she has served as an adviser for and has been featured in several documentary films, including “I Was a Teenage Feminist” and “Miss Representation.”

Jennifer has appeared as a media commentator on NBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, ABC News Now, GRITtv, Democracy Now!, National Public Radio, and Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” And, because she’s a sucker for punishment, she’s gone head to head with some of the most blustery boys of cable news, including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Joe Scarborough.

A noted lecturer, Jennifer has spoken on women, media, politics and pop culture at more than eighty colleges across the country, on topics ranging from portrayals of women in reality television, to gender and race biases in journalistic coverage of elections, to media coverage of war, poverty and natural disasters. She conducts media literacy workshops and media trainings for women’s groups, youth, and social justice organizations.

In 2009, she was recognized as one of the New Leaders Council “40 Under 40” progressive leaders in America. In 2007, Soroptimist International of NYC honored her with their “Making A Difference for Women” Award. Still, her favorite award remains her 2006 inclusion “The Real Hot 100,” a Girls In Government project honoring young women leaders making change in their communities. Forbes named Jennifer one of “20 Inspiring Women To Follow On Twitter” in 2010. Later that year, she was amused to find her non-profit activist self alongside Tyra Banks, Martha Stewart and Vera Wang on BizTech Day’s list of “25 Influential Business Women in New York City You Should Follow on Twitter.”

Use the “F” word.
Change NYC. Change the World.

LGBT Marriage Equality counter Protest City Hall Tues in Response to Extremist Religous Group

A group of extremist and right-wing religious organisations are holding a press conference on Tuesday, June 14 from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm on the steps of New York City Hall.

These extremist groups are asking all believers in the Lord to join in a day of fasting and prayer to invoke ''divine intervention'' to prevent the passage of Marriage Equality in New York State. For more information about the religious event, please visit :

Connecting Rainbows, an LGBT civil rights group, is inviting all community groups, activists, and allies to join us -- and to spread the word to others -- about a counter demonstration that supporters of Marriage Equality are holding at the same time and at the same place : on Tuesday, June 14 at 11:30 a.m. on the steps of New York City Hall !

Connecting Rainbows is asking for a similar and powerful coälition of Marriage Equality groups to show up -- and to send a message that these religious organisations should be protecting the sanctity of LGBTQ lives, too. We are each somebody, and we each deserve full equality.

Join the growing number of voices, who are saying that Gov. Cuomo should pull out all the stops -- and get marriage equality passed through the state legislature. (LGBT New Yorkers, who have faith or who follow a different spiritual journey, should not be the targets of religious rhetoric.)

Yetta Kurland Petitions Delivered to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman

Dear Neighbor,

I just returned from an exciting trip to deliver over 7,000 of your signatures to our Attorney General Eric Schneiderman this morning to ask that he join in our community’s efforts to block the sale of St. Vincent’s to the Rudins unless and until the plan includes a hospital.  I just want to personally thank you for the time you took to sign the petition, to circulate it to others and help in tabling to get others’ signatures.  Below is a picture that I hope will make you understand how important your work was and how greatly it is appreciated.

Now, I hope you will join me tonight for the CB2 meeting at 6:30pm at the Village Community School on W. 10th Street and Greenwich, where the Rudins are attempting to move forward with efforts to turn St. Vincent’s into luxury condos. 

In fact, documents that have recently surfaced, and which I attach here (see below), seem to make clear that not only have the Rudins not gotten all the approvals they need, the approvals they do have require them to build a hospital at the site and these approvals cannot now be transferred for a different plan to build luxury condominiums and an urgent care center.

Hope to see you tonight.
