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 Consolee Nishimwe was 14, the Rwandan Genocide ripped her country and family apart. She hid out in bushes, attics, and she survived. She shared her story with us and inspired the hell out of us. The Rwandan Genocide is a big and terrible topic that we couldn’t fully explore in this episode, so do ya homework and learn more about it to fully appreciate Consolee’s journey.
