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.
Lockey Maisonneuve calls herself the "Girl Raised by Wolves." She had abusive, neglectful parents and hated when people told her she couldn't heal until she forgave her abusers. She found healing through yoga and was able to release her pain, and now she teaches others. You can get a copy of her memoir wherever books are sold.
