Ricki talks with courageous women who fought back after brutal attacks
February 18: Ricki sits down with two courageous women who fought to take back their power after enduring brutal sexual assaults.
Ricki's first guest, Julie, never imagined she'd become a statistic, but one autumn day she was car-jacked from a church parking lot (with her two infants in the car) and repeatedly raped in the presence of her children. Her ordeal ultimately led her to introduce a bill in Congress.
Ricki's second guest, Wanda, was a marketing executive on a business trip when she was abducted, tied between four trees and repeatedly raped. During her ordeal, she managed to use psychology on her assailant that she and authorities believe saved her life. Once her assailant was caught, her courage during her attacker's trial defied conventional wisdom.
Also joining the conversation is Kirk Griffith, a 38-year veteran of the Dallas Special Victims Unit.
