Breaking the Silence on Abuse


Warren Cole Smith

Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, Rachael Denhollander speaks with Warren Cole Smith about her new book, “What Is a Girl Worth?: My Story of Breaking the Silence and Exposing the Truth about Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics.”

Rachael recounts the enormous obstacles that she and abuse survivors face when they try to expose the truth: in Rachel’s case, stonewalling and outright opposition from powerful institutions—Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics, law enforcement, and even her own church.

She also talks about how institutions can—and how some have—taken responsibility to expose abuse and to begin the process of healing for victims.
