What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape

by Sohaila Abdulali Author

In 1983, Sohaila Abdulali wrote an article about her experience and survival following her horrific gang-rape at the age of 17. She shared her story and wrote explicitly about the community's reaction, or lack thereof, following the attack. Nearly thirty years later, her article burst back into the public conscious following the tragic rape and murder of Jyoti Singh in 2012. In What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape, prolific activist Abdulali returns to the subject of rape, rape culture, and how we as a society treat the victims of sexual assault and rape. This is an evertimely book, even more so in the days of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements that are tirelessly working to shed light on the sexual violence that pervades our world.
