Don’t Resign, Natresha Dawson

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 with some women, regardless race and status, who challenges sexual harassment and turns to a system set up to fail them. It is about a woman who had worked hard as a public servant to provide a decent life for her child and herself, but her career goals were halted because she, like so many other women, had refused to bed her way to the top of that corporate ladder. It all started in an agency charged with a mission to protect and after she had kindly declined her supervisor’s, the Director of Personnel, invitation for a “night cap.” 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, she emerges victoriously as a triumphant overcomer by the grace and mercy of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What really happens in the Office of Special Counsel, a small agency with such a huge mission? 

Natresha T. Dawson has written Don’t Resign: A Woman’s Right in a Man’s World to bring light to the desperate need for stronger laws of protection for women. Also, to protect women, regardless race and status, who report sexual harassment in among others, the Federal sector, to provide tips for women and men to help in this horrible epidemic, and encourages women to Don’t Resign, don’t give up, or give in. In an era where women are being maliciously smeared “troublemakers, elevator screamers, and falsely accused for falsely accusing men of sexual harassment”, compelling preponderance of evidence proves this is a witty, true story.

Don’t Resign is a poignant, moving read that made me feel a lot of host of different emotions. This moving piece of non-fiction may be hard-hitting at times, but it is an essential read because it will make the reader aware, and shed light on a subject and happenings that not too many people think about but what most people know about. That is why already I have to implore you lovely readers to read this moving memoir; it is beautiful, inspiring and touching all at the same time, and you will not be disappointed if you read it.
