112: Founder of First Rape Crisis Center Janet Yassen

Janet Yassen is a psychotherapist, a feminist, a civil rights activist, and one of the founders of the first rape crisis centers in Boston in 1973.
If you knew you wanted to start an important center, how would you go about it? Would you do it like Janet did?

We talk about gender-based violence, about how group settings are extremely important, how she works to help people get in control of their minds, bodies and spirits.

Janet talks about how we need to face our own powerlessness often, and how it is possible to accomplish.
