This woman was raped, then did a TED Talk with the man who did it!
I have watched A LOT of TED Talks, but this is one of the more unusual ones.
You often don't hear about a rape ending in a positive way. These two found it within them selves to help each other through the traumatic experience, and set the bar for what is possible. In my opinion, you have to be an incredibly strong person to forgive someone that raped you, and work together to overcome the experience.
The scene is set when they were both fairly young, and actually in a relationship at the time. Alcohol was involved when the deed occurred, and before what happened had set in, he moved away. It turns out that the experience was slowly eating away at both of them.
I don't want to give too much away! Watch it for yourself, their approach is unheard of.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you be able to forgive your perpetrator giving the circumstance?
