Real Talk About Being a Public Survivor w/@Wagatwe Wanjuki — #KatieSpeakShow Ep29 03/19/2016

In brief: Survivors of all shapes serve as inspiration for others. Wagatwe Wanjuki is on for the full show to talk about creating space and joy for ourselves in a culture that demands all women, but survivors in particular, be perpetually selfless. It’s long past time for some real talk on the right to individual happiness.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
