50 Shades of Silence – A Global Movement and Documentary on Cyber Stalking


Imagine waking up one day to find harassing meme’s, nude pictures and videos of yourself online. Images that you were not aware existed, you did not approve of and have no control of removing. The person who committed this atrocious act, you once lived with and loved, lives in a different country and wants to humiliate you and destroy your reputation – and no legislation or law enforcment can prevent this from occurring or ensure those pictures are removed.

This happened to me. I’m Darieth Chisolm and I am a survivor of cyber sexual rape cyber stalking, harassment, and extortion. During this time, I spiraled into the most unimaginable sense of pain, frustration, anger, isolation, confusion, and heartache possible.

I am also an Emmy Award-winning television personality, former NBC News Anchor, author, business visibility and life coach, and I found myself at the very center of this nightmare.

In this video Darieth shares the whole story about her experience with being stalked and the invasion of her privacy by a former boyfriend who took naked photos o her and used them to launch a website of explicit photos taken without her consent. Darieth says this vicious act was his retaliation towards her because she refused to return to an emotionally abusive relationship towards her.  She didn’t hold back on the details, and she talks about how she is now advocating and fighting for victims rights by creating a documentary and a movement called, 50 Shades of Silence.

The site gives you the opportunity to speak out and share your story. They want to hear about your experiences, feelings  and ideas. Perhaps you are a family member or a friend of a victim and want to express their story.

Darieth knows that being brave enough to speak up and being honest can help foster healing, drive community, and inspire change.
