Project Stand - Faces of Rape & Sexual Abuse Survivors

Dee Babcock

Dee Babcock, 70, Winnebago, MN

Raped at the age of 55 by Pastor Gordon Johnson when she attended the annual conference of Minnesota United Methodist Churches. Babcock didn't recognize the incident as rape due to her abusive childhood, until she discovered the fact that her daughter had been sexually abused by the same man. Babcock turned her farmhouse into a retreat for abused women, and is now active in the fight against sexual assault.
