In the early '90s, Gabrielle's attacker was sentenced to 33 years in prison. She says she plans to testify if he ever receives a parole hearing.

Now, Gabrielle is busy urging lawmakers to increase the funding of rape crisis centers across America. She says this mission is her responsibility.

"I was lucky to be raped in an affluent community where our police force was well funded, well staffed and underworked, and our rape crisis center was overstaffed and well funded," she says. "But I recognize that most people don't have that same treatment."

"Thank you for your strength," Oprah says.
