This was absolutely excellent!
It was incredibly thorough and totally opened my eyes to the realities of stranger rape, acquaintance rape, and date rape. It is so important that men AND women read this book to become aware of what is happening in our society, how to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and how damaging non-consenual sex is not just for the individual who was harmed but also for our society as a whole.
As per usual, here is my book review:

Do I Recommend This Book:
Completely. I'm totally serious. PLEASE read this book. Even if you're "not interested" in learning about this. It's SO important and so easy to read. We all need to know how to handle these situations just incase this happens to us or our friends or family. It truly will change how you look at your world and empower you to make a difference.
Quotes: Whether they acknowledge their experience as rape or not, 30 percent of the women identified in the study as rape victims contemplated suicide after the incident.
85 percent of women knew the men who raped them (as in they were raped by someone they knew).
Rape is not something that only occurs to women who are walking alone in the dark by someone who they don't know. Rape can occur on a date, at a party, or even by a family member or close friend. It is very important that we stay safe and we practice consensual sex-make sure the person wants to have sex with you before you do anything. If a person changes their mind, they have the right to do so and you have to honor that. Do not force anyone to do something they are uncomfortable with. And if someone you know or if you have been harmed sexually, it is NOT your fault. Even if you feel like you did something "foolish" (like you drank too much or you "trusted" the person or you were making out and things got out of a hand. It is never your fault if someone has hurt you.
I'll probably do a book talk on this topic on my new radio show so be sure you follow me to know when that goes live because I definitely want to discuss this. :)
