Speaking at Take Back the Night Rally is Amy Lee Peine
A woman with a past and a passion, Amy Lee Peine has been telling the story of her past and her healing journey to help break the silence of sexual assault for over a decade. A mother, wife, ex-exotic dancer, and survivor of childhood sexual abuse, two rapes, and a third assault; she knows the pain, shame and chaos this epidemic can create. Not only will Amy’s voice reach people with the tragic and candid story of what has happened to her, she will create hope in the story of where she was to where she is.
Amy is most well known for her public speaking on campuses about her experiences with sexual violence, the healing journey, as well as the connection of the sex industry and the oppression of women. She has worked with St. Cloud University Women’s Center and Gender Violence Prevention Program, LGBT Services Speakers Bureau, and RAINN Speakers Bureau. Amy Lee is currently writing her memoir The Destruction of Lilacs as well as a guide for advocates in working with survivors in the sex industry titled, Glamorized Oppression and Re-Victimization. She has released a novel Disillusioned Love, a book in which Amy’s own experiences as a survivor provide an emotional and raw reality to Riana, the book’s lead.
