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 Rachel was in the Air Force, she was assaulted by a fellow airman. While initially praised for her bravery, she was punished when she spoke out. But Rachel left the skies for the seas, and found healing on her boat, Coconut, where she now lives. Isn't it annoying that the Air Force refuses to call members anything other than "airman" even when they're air women? And to all those who have served our country, we salute you.
