Jessica Garrison has told her remarkable story of taking on Alabama blogger Roger Shuler (who we will not link to) to nationally recognized magazine Marie Claire. As of our posting of this story, Garrison’s account has received more than 1,200 shares.
After detailing the series of rumors and multiple posts Shuler wrote, including an accusation about her son’s paternity, she says, “I decided I had nothing more to lose – so I rolled up my sleeves and fought back.”
In a world and especially a career field where women frequently don’t stand up for themselves, I thank Jessica Garrison for her courage and tenacity. It may not stop Shuler from continuing to post about women, but maybe it will inspire more women to recognize they don’t have to just take the abuse.
