"In 2002, seven yearsafter they were married, Rulon Jeffs died and Musser made a decision to runaway.“After seven years of continual sexual violations, I’d had enough,” she said, according to the report.Though she had been taught to be obedient for her entire life, she said: “Give me hell, because I don’t want this heaven.”Once she escaped, Musser found a difficult life on the outside, but also a new sense of freedom. She cut her hair for the first time, and slowly learned how to fit in.“It was a brutal transitionat best,” she said, according to the newspaper."

"It was never about theconviction. It was about the victims, those who had been violated," she said. "I wish to God someone had stood up for me. I wish to God someone had spoken for me."


Salt Lake Tribune:

"SHEROs fight for our freedom, often putting their career to the side and lives on the line of defense of every American citizen. In recent decades, women have joined the military ranks in masses. These brave women provide an invaluable service, along with their male counterparts, to defend the United States. SHEROES deserve our praise and support, especially during a time when thousands of female veterans are found homeless throughout the country and without needed health benefits."
