Who are the sisters?
Jessica, Andrea, and Shanell are living proof that you can escape from the horrors of polygamist groups and make it in the free world. Their personal horrors have driven them to help those who need a way out.
Throughout various episodes, each of the women has opened up about their life. Now, they are working toward helping others and making sure they have the best shot at a life outside of the group they are escaping from.
