WUSA’s JC Hayward Interview Child Abuse Victim Tammy Gagnon

WUSA’s JC Hayward interviewed Tammy Gagnon, a victim of sexual abuse, as a child, by her own grandfather.

According to the Rape Abuse Incest National Network or RAINN:

  • Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted
  • 60% of sexual assaults are not reported to the police
  • Approximately 2/3 of assaults are committed by someone known to the victim
  • 38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance
  • 15 of 16 rapists will never spend a day in jail

Tammy Gagnon  lived with the secret of being sexually abused for many years; until one day she decided to no longer stay silent. Her book No Longer Silent chronicles her life from pain to triumph.
