She has received hate-mail, threats and nasty comments from the left’s extremist feminists but Kimberly didn’t let that stop her.
A young Kimberly Corban was sexually assaulted in her own apartment more than 10 years ago but rather than fall apart Kimberly stood her ground in the courtroom and saw her attacker receive justice. During the Obama administration, when gun rights were being disputed, she challenged Obama on television and has since received hate in all forms from the left and those claiming to be feminists.
It is important to take a look at Kimberly’s story, and those like her, during this time of ‘new age feminists’ and realize this is what real feminism looks like. It isn’t petty or absurd, it’s the strength we see in women like her.
If you’ve never heard of Kimberly Corban then you should definitely start getting comfortable with the name, because Corban has made one for herself in some of the most extraordinary ways possible.
Girls in college campuses across America are getting to know her, taking her advice, laughing at her jokes, and looking to her as a big sister? Why? Because when it comes to the highs and lows of women’s lives, Corban knows the feeling. Be it the joys and frustrations of motherhood, the exciting and terrifying parts of dating, marriage, divorce, careers, and starting over, Corban’s been there and wears the figurative t-shirts collectively.
But Corban has also been in the lowest of the lows. In 2006, as a young woman of 20, she was raped by a man who broke into her home one night. Playing it smart, Corban did what was necessary to keep herself alive and make sure her rapist went to jail. Moving on, Corban refused to let the event turn her into a victim. Instead, she used it to turn her into something powerful.
And that’s why so many young women listen to Corban. Her life is a story worth telling, and a story worth listening to. It’s a story of overcoming the worst life has to throw at you, fighting back, conquering, and finding joy on the other side. In today’s world, it’s a message society is sorely lacking. We’re rife with angry victims, but we’re severely short on happy warriors.
