In an era where women are being maliciously smeared “troublemakers, elevator screamers, and falsely accused of falsely accusing men of sexual harassment”, the compelling preponderance of evidence proves this is a witty, true story. More than just a memoir, but a real-life tell-all expose’ about what really takes place behind the closed doors of the Federal Government for some women, regardless race and status, who challenges sexual harassment and turns to a system set up to fail them.
After transferring from department to department, going through a series of court battles, judges’ collusion, malicious smear campaigns, and fighting for she and her child’s lives for twelve years, by the grace and mercy of Natresha’s Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, she emerges victoriously as a triumphant overcomer. She has written Don’t Resign to bring light to the desperate need for stronger laws of protection for women, provide helpful tips for women and men to recognize sexual harassment and how to safely navigate out of it, and encourages women to don’t give up, Don’t Resign.
Author’s note: Yes, sexual harassment happens and it takes courage, maturity, and strength to share our stories. Forgiveness is one of my favorite sections in my book.
“The strength of a woman by Mrs.McKie”
Wow! When I met Ms. Dawson, I had no idea her book, Don’t Resign was such a Powerful reading! After flipping through the pages of Ms. Dawson’s book, I had to put down the Michelle Obama book to read this heartfelt story that I most definitely could identify with. For I too have experienced sex harassment in the DMV Federal Government arena. I too have had to stand up and fight for my rights as a woman. Work life balance is challenging as it is. It’s strenuous enough as a mother to have to leave your children in the care of others in an effort to feed your family but then to have to go to work and have some jerk with power, some without, threatening your livelihood for their selfish pleasures is enough to make anyone snap. You try to ignore it, you try to avoid it but it doesn’t stop. For some reason no means yes to them and the more challenging the prey, the harder their pursuit. The moment you take action and file a complaint, you are no longer the victim but now the office bitch. I am so proud of Ms. Dawson in her persistent 12 year effort to fight and not give up, not only for herself but all women. If you are experiencing sexual harassment and I know some of you are, please, please read this book as it will help guide and empower you to take a stand. It’s time for women to link arms and stand together. Stop letting them divide and conquer us!
