Rachael Denhollander (@R_Denhollander) is an attorney, advocate, educator, and author of What Is a Girl Worth?: My Story of Breaking the Silence and Exposing the Truth about Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics. What We Discuss with Rachael Denhollander: How the culture of competitive gymnastics contributed to the commonplace physical and mental abuse of underage Olympic hopefuls. How Nassar was able to manipulate the trust of parents while simultaneously abusing their children, unseen, just a few feet away using creepy sleight of hand techniques and misdirection like a masterful pedophile illusionist. Why the same set of circumstances that make parents hesitate to believe that such abuse could be going on under their noses is the same set of circumstances that make such abuse possible -- and allows monsters like Nassar to get away with it for decades before their victims dare to speak out. How Nassar was protected by numerous enablers in the organizations for which he worked, and why they may have chosen to take his word over the consistent allegations of countless victims. Why Rachael was able to go public with the abuse that she herself endured from Nassar when others couldn't, and how this encouraged other victims to come forward. And much more...
