Women get assaulted. Women get attacked. Women get harassed, manipulated, intimidated, but women are survivors. Time and time again, she persists, even against all odds. Hosts Jenna Brister and Wagatwe Wanjuki share their stories, and those of the men and women who fought back, who won, and who live rising above the trauma of their experiences.
When you've experienced trauma it can seem almost impossible to put your life back together. Today on the show we have two women who not only did that, but who have dedicated their lives to helping people who have faced similarly traumatic events. Patricia Wenskunas was attacked in her home by someone she knew; Elena Christopolous was gang raped at a college party by her peers, but both women reclaimed their lives and are helping other women do the same. Here's to all the sisters doin' it for themselves! We owe you a drink.
