Rachael Denhollander: How Much is a Girl Worth?
"I had to look at what it was going to cost me personally, and what it was going to cost my family...And on the other side were little girls who needed to be saved and women who needed to be set free and know the truth. And they were worth more than what it was going to cost." -Rachael Denhollander Listen in as Women in the Academy and Professions associate Caroline Triscik interviews attorney, educator, advocate, and survivor Rachael Denhollander. In this conversation, we discuss Rachael's courage, vision, and purpose behind her bold activism in encouraging our culture to listen to the voices of sexual abuse survivors to bring justice and systemic change. Rachael Denhollander became known internationally as the ﬁrst woman to ﬁle a police report and speak publicly against USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar, one of the most proliﬁc sexual abusers in recorded history. As a result of her activism, over 250 women came forward as survivors of Nassar’s abuse, leading to his life imprisonment. Additionally, her courageous tenacity and ongoing advocacy helped trigger a complete upheaval at both USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University where former executives and high-ranking officials face numerous criminal charges for their complicity in covering up Nassar’s abuse and lying about what they knew.
