Rachel Denhollander was only 15 when Larry Nassar sexually abused her. She later became a lawyer. Sixteen years later, she was the first woman to press criminal charges and publicly reveal that she had been one of the many victims of the USA Gymnastics team doctor. The decision to speak out ultimately led her to lose friends, her church community, and her privacy. Yet in so doing, she sparked a tidal wave of accusations against Nassar, revealing the appalling extent of his abuse. Now she educates and advocates, illuminating not only issues of abuse, but also the very cultural dynamics that allow abusers to remain in power. Denhollander is a TIME 100 honoree and a 2018 Glamour Woman of the Year.
