Welcome! You are taking steps to know yourself and improve your life. The Sexual Revolution has chewed people up and spit them out. We at the Ruth Institute are fed up. We say, “This has gone on long enough.”

As you read down the list of the Victims of the Sexual Revolution, keep these questions in mind:
Do you recognize yourself? Do you recognize anyone you know? Let’s focus on yourself first of all. Click on the Survivor that best describes your situation. You can go to more than one, for sure. I, for instance (this is Dr. J speaking) could click on Heartbroken Career Woman, Cohabiter with Regrets and Post-Abortive Woman.
Go to your page. You will find an extensive quiz, just for you. You will find a multi-media resource library. And, you will find friends! A community of people just like you.
We get it. We know you have struggled. Don’t go it alone.
Before you leave this page, give yourself credit! Your feelings may range from hurt to fearful to angry. But you hung in there and studied this chart.
Have you had enough? Are you ready to heal?
