Description

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.

this episode was amazing! it's a different way to look at grief and everything that was talked about was very eye opening and made sense.

Interesting podcast but please be careful about encouraging people to intervene in domestic violence situations. Intervening could put you at risk or could actually increase the level of abuse toward the victim once he or she is alone again with the perpetrator. The best thing you can do in this situation (according to dv charities and support groups) is to call the police and report the incident, giving them as much detail as possible. Sometimes the "heroic" action, no matter how empowering it might feel, is the worst thing you can do.

As a huge fan of I Survived, I was so excited to find this podcast! I’m not at all a fan of the hosts/presentation, though. I know it’s very hip and trendy thanks to MFM (et al) to have hosts that do the “riffing conversation” thing, but it’s not at all appropriate for every podcast, especially one about survivors of horrible things! The hosts should be sent to the extreme background and let the survivors’ stories stand on their own. Unsubscribed.

Jessica Long your absolutely right. there is too much light hearted joking, laughing and chatting. it minimizes the trauma/experience of the victim. not cool

wow great podcast! I know it's fairly young, but it would be great to hear about surviving an abusive relationship. having been in two, Ive been searching podcasts on narcissistic sociopaths and the affects it has on women and how they over come the trauma. Therapy only does so much. Thanks for the work you put into this podcast. It means a lot.

To the end points - why not aim both for systemic change AND be cautious in the current system?

Two words - VOCAL FRY. Unlistenable with this obnoxious affect. It's like nails on a blackboard.
