The last few years, Kayla Harrison has felt mixed emotions watching the Larry Nassar molestation scandal and the rise of the #MeToo movement.
The two-time Olympic judo champion has felt immensely proud of the women who have stepped forward to demand justice. She also knows how tough that can be.
“Sexual abuse is a scar you carry the rest of your life,” she says.
Back in 2011, shortly before winning her first gold medal, Harrison revealed that she had been molested by a former coach when she was younger. Speaking out was not as common then.
