Today’s Badass Chick is Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids. This organization works to educate children about sexual abuse, in hopes that education equals prevention. Lauren Book was sexually abused by her nanny when she was growing up, and now she is a teacher, author and activist working hard to prevent this from happening to other children. She holds fundraisers and develops curriculum that educates children in schools. She also has received over 17 awards for her contributions. Kudos to Lauren for turning a terrible thing into a positive movement. Lauren Book is my Badass Chick of the Day! You can learn more about Lauren’s Kids here.
