Tell a Gal P.A.L.

The Allstate Foundation just launched the Tell a Gal P.A.L. program and contest on www.ClickToEmpower.org.

The program encourages people to donate nearly new purses or professional bags to Dress for Success to help domestic violence survivors, or other women in need, get back on their feet with confidence. Purse donations will be accepted at select Allstate agency locations across the nation.

To help kick start this, ABCs Ugly Betty actress, Ana Ortiz, will donate her Onna Ehrlich purse to one lucky winner for telling others about domestic violence. To enter the contest, visit http://www.clicktoempower.com/gal-pal-entry-form.aspx  - the contest ends on October 31.

This special 90 minute show will highlight the damage that is caused to so many women who suffer childhood sexual trauma. From the psychotherapist who offered groundbreaking work on self-mutilation (Cutting) comes a landmark examination of the psychology of sexual abuse. Stolen Tomorrows encourages the 20 percent of women who have been abused to think about, talk about, and seek help for what has been their secret shame. In addition to giving therapists and other helpers an empathic insight, Stolen Tomorrows will enable the survivor to recognize herself in both her personal history and her current struggle to overcome the legacy of abuse."  sexual abuse and abuse talk radio show | Stolen Tomorrows: Understanding and Treating Women's Childhood Sexual Abuse
