Rape Survivor & 2nd Amendment Rights Advocate Kimberly Corban Speaks (VIDEO)

by Ericka Andersen Sylvester

We are pleased to bring you another edition of our "Modern Feminist," featuring Second Amendment Advocate Kimberly Corban for the month of December. As Charlotte Hays documented in her interview, Corban is a survivor of a brutal rape and since that time, has been an outspoken proponent of 2nd Amendment rights, specifically for women. But, her advocacy has not been an easy road: 

"For wanting to make women safer, Corban has been vilified by the gun control lobby. 'I have been called so many names, threatened so many times, that it almost doesn't seem real,' Corban admits. But the name calling hasn't stopped her. A gun, she argues, can make women, who tend to be physically smaller than their attackers, or the elderly or disabled, safer. A gun is an equalizer for the weak against a stronger assailant."

I spoke with Corban earlier this year on Facebook Live about her harrowing experience and why she is standing up for gun rights despite the media and cultural backlash:
