About the Author
“Dr. Charlotte Laws became the ‘Erin Brockovich of revenge porn.’” – CBS News
“This book is two for the price of one. Rebel in High Heels provides a gripping account of Charlotte Laws’ dangerous battle against revenge porn. But it also details Laws’ roller-coaster early years: dating a superstar, dealing with suicide, hobnobbing with celebrities, fighting racism and being thrust into the glitzy world of ‘sex for sale.’ By following Laws’ bold, life-crashing adventures, the reader learns how to become a rebel and a relentless advocate for victims. This memoir is about persistence, leading an active life and helping others. Laws invents her own recipe for success. She reveals her secrets in this mesmerizing tell-all book, tidbit by tasty tidbit.” — Every Way Woman Show
“Charlotte Laws single-handedly dismantled the empire of pure evil that earned Hunter Moore the title of ‘Most Hated Man on the Internet.’” —MSNBC
Dr. Charlotte Laws is known throughout the world as the “Erin Brockovich of revenge porn” and was voted “one of the 30 fiercest women in the world for 2013 (Buzzfeed).”
She was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a writer, television commentator and public speaker, but has also been a Buckhead debutante, magazine covergirl, private investigator, actress, Southern California politician and lecturer for the FBI in Quantico.
Laws has a Ph.D. in Social Ethics, as well as two Master’s degrees and two BAs. She has authored three books and contributed to four anthologies. Her articles have appeared in The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Salon, Jezebel and the L.A. Daily News.
Laws has appeared on “The Late Show,” Fox News, “Oprah,” “Nightline,” MSNBC, CNN, “Dr. Drew,” and “Larry King Live.” She hosted her own TV program called “Uncommon Sense” and was a weekly contributor on the NBC show, “The Filter with Fred Roggin.”
Laws—who was adopted at birth—used her investigative abilities to track down her birth family in her late 20s, but only recently met her natural siblings. Her grandfather—an attorney who planned to run for U.S. Senate—was murdered by a devil worshiper in the 1940s.
Laws is a boardmember for the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, a nonprofit that aids victims of nonconsensual pornography. She regularly communicates with victims from around the world, advising them how to get their compromising photos removed from the Internet.

funny, sorrowful, read, filled with escapades and stories that collectively
could amount to attendees of a well populated women's college, but all these
stories are not from a collective of females, rather one unique woman who
dared to live a life most of us would never dream of. The pages, a life
story, that could have been a pathetic wasted journey is anything but, and
in this memoir the reader learns that the heart knows what the mind can
never understand, of all that's possible; from a broken heart to love's
answer, animal compassion, walking thought neglectful abuse to confidence,
moving in and out of celebrity with ease, lies to succeed; all a drive down
metaphor of road maps that paint entire stories with one sentence. Laws'
masterfully crafts her words into poetic plainspoken simplicity that is
every bit as lovely and awesome as the majesty of all that nature offers us
miraculously every given moment. Her witting is something to behold and
appreciate, her story worth reading, and well deserving of praise. Paulette
Mahurin, author of The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap and His Name Was Ben
I am an astrologer at astrologicalconsulting.com and I loved the book 'Rebel in high heels'. It was exciting, funny, edgy, suspenseful, romantic, entertaining, and it kept me reading. I was excited all the way until the last page. I have decided to review this wonderful book from an astrological perspective.
I have had a chance to review Charlotte Laws’ chart. With Charlotte's Mars square Jupiter, Charlotte has a natural propensity to fight (Mars) on behalf of justice (Jupiter), rooting for underdogs and those in less fortunate positions. She fights and springs into action (Mars), especially when it comes to Jupiterian issues of ethics, morality, and justice. She fights for the justice of animals, for the ethical treatment of animals, as well as fighting for the justice of the people who have been victims of revenge porn, as well as fighting against racism.
With Charlotte's Sun square Uranus,, she is a natural agent of change. Her vital self-expression and identity (Sun) is all about creating change, break through, getting away from the old order, bringing in the new, being ahead of her time (Uranus). One of Charlotte’s main missions in life is to wake up humanity..
If a woman has been traumatized or wounded in some way, Charlotte has demonstrated how much she is motivated to care for and protect them with her Moon (women, to care for, to protect) square to Pluto (violations, wounding, trauma). This speaks to assisting revenge porn victims. She has no qualms about going into the danger zone in which others might shy away from. Others might walk away from that situation, shrugging their shoulders, while Charlotte dives in with a vengeance to protect these violated women.
With Charlotte’s Venus (intimacy, social relatedness, companionship) in opposition to Neptune (fantasy, dreams, idealization) Charlotte literally brought into manifestation her dream romantic situation with her crush, Tom Jones.
Charlotte also has Uranus quincunx Saturn. This means she may be super motivated to develop a skill set in rebelling (Uranus) against the existing order (Saturn). Conformity, status quo, and existing structures is a problem for her that she needs to solve (quincunx). She brings in her radical ideas and enlightened viewpoint. She wants to free people from outmoded ways, liberate, progress, shock, shatter, rebel, and agitate. She worries about these things but this leads to her develop a skill so she can become competent in reforming these areas. With Uranus being right on her mid-heaven, the public may see her as radical and eccentric. She is focused on Uranian ideals of altruism and humanitarianism.
She also has Mercury square Uranus so she likes to shock (Uranus) people with her words (Mercury) (something the reader may experience in this book). She can shock people into thinking in a new way. She can destabilize people’s mental processes and free them from outmoded ways of thinking. Her objective, and revolutionary insights can help to open people’s minds, to give them a broader viewpoint. She can help us to realize that we are all part of the same global family and we need to work together for the good of all, including animals.
Despite the Uranian shocks that Charlotte may zing us with through her communication, Charlotte also Sun, Venus and Mercury all conjunct in Taurus, making this book, Rebel in High Heels, also a sensual pleasure (Taurus) to read (Mercury). She writes in a delicious and luxurious manner. It is soothing and satisfying to read her words. It is inviting, earthy, comforting. Reading her book is like eating a bowl of ice cream.
Charlotte has a Moon in Sagittarius. The Moon is how we care for people, so Charlotte cares (Moon) by sharing her truth and wisdom (Sagittarius). She cares for people by teaching and advising them.
Charlotte has Scorpio rising, which manifests in her “smart talent,” as defined in her book. She also has Neptune on her ascendant. This can make her a shape-shifter and she was able to crash all kinds of celebrity parties, and meld in with the crowd unnoticed. The rising sign is the survival mechanism for a person. Charlotte likes to watch, observe, penetrate into, and delve into situations (Scorpio), and this is especially evident in her intitial actions and the image she projects (ascendant).
To summarize, Charlotte is an agent of change who fights for justice and who is not afraid to care for and protect those who have been wounded, violated, and victimized. She has demonstrated competence in helping others to break free of existing structures and orders and introducing society to more enlightened ways of being.
This book is a journey. A journey where one woman took the world and never gave up. Ladies, I encourage you to pick this book up and read it. Pass it on, and let's let Charlotte's story be heard.
