Jackie told TshisaLive that she used a lot of case studies in her book as well as had her lawyers find relevant case studies to help her validate some of her points. But she also shared some other things that was really personal for her as well.

The personal stuff involved her losing a baby and a few details about some of her sexual encounters after she had been raped.
