Description:

How do so many women survive the violence of their daily lives? Where do they find hope? How can this violence be allowed to continue? A long-needed book, Shout Out contains a powerful collection of writing by women who are contemplating and striving to answer these very troubling questions. Shout Out addresses a range of responses to the injustices that women everywhere are sustaining in their daily lives: physical abuse, murder, rape, poverty, and psychological terror. Through critical examinations, creative nonfiction, and poetry, the contributors provide living testimony for the need to put an end to oppression and violence.
