A woman was reporedly sentenced after she attacked her would-be rapist with a blunt weapon.
Her ordeal started after securing a job at a multinational, billion-dollar company.
She was inspired by young black geologists and determined to work her way up the corporate ladder.
Determined not to be a victim of corrective rape, Bridget mustered all her strength to fight off a would-be rapist after a house party. Using a blunt weapon, she attacked the man, thereby protecting herself and her partner.
Although neither Bridget nor her attacker filed charges, Bridget was arrested for a robbery she didn’t commit.
Bridget was wrongfully convicted in 2002 and sentenced to 10 years in prison for robbery in 2003.
She spent a total of 3 years and 3 months behind bars in Sun City prison in Johannesburg. And although the she was released from prison almost 14 years ago, Bridget has struggled to rebuild her life.
She currently works as an ad-hoc trainer, but sessions have been few and far between.
It hasn’t diminished her passion for empowering people in her community.
Bridget is determined to finish writing a book documenting her extraordinary life.
She hopes it will inspire others to overcome their personal struggles.https://newsoweto.co.za/victim-sentenced-for-using-a-blunt-weapon-to-attack-rapist/https://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/images-10.jpeghttps://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/images-10-150x150.jpegMetroRape
