FRAMINGHAM – “Imagine waking up one day to find harassing meme’s, nude pictures and videos of yourself online. Images that you were not aware existed, you did not approve of and have no control of removing. The person who committed this atrocious act, you once lived with and loved, lives in a different country and wants to humiliate you and destroy your reputation – and no legislation or law enforcement can prevent this from occurring or ensure those pictures are removed.”
“This happened to me,” said Darieth Chisolm, the keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual MetroWest Conference for Women “I am a survivor of revenge porn, cyber sexual stalking, harassment, and extortion.”
But the Emmy Award-winning television personality, former NBC News Anchor, author, business visibility and life coach,” took action.
Even though she found herself in a “nightmare,” she fought back and is making a difference.
“During this time, I spiraled into the most unimaginable sense of pain, frustration, anger, isolation, confusion, and heartache possible,” said Chisolm.
But out of that time in her life, she became stronger and launched www.50shadesofsilence.com, a global movement “giving voice and dignity to victims of cyber harassment and online crimes.”
On Thursday, September 20, she will be the keynote speaker at the MetroWest Conference for Women. The Conference is sold out with more than 650 attendees.
CEO, president, and founder of the Conference Jen Maseda of Natick, interviewed Chisolm for her cable TV show Women2Women Today.
