REVIEW: FEM ZINE The Art of Consent

REVIEW 100 WIK: @BOOKISHBRONTE    If you can, I urge you to read this book. It’s heart wrenching, uncomfortable and harrowing, but it’s also important. It’s important because it shows how the majority of the victims blame themselves, how most didn’t even know that it was sexual assault at the time, and how, in some cases, they were told that they were ‘asking for it’.  The rape culture that has people feeling it’s

REVIEW 100 WIK: JULIETSLIBRARY    The other title I wanted to highlight is 100 Women I Know from    @brkthehbt   . It’s a collection of real-life stories from women who have experienced sexual abuse, and I think it’s such a heartbreaking and incredibly important book.

REVIEW 100 WIK: @DOONZ___      I read this book in one sitting. One page after the other - in awe at how strong the beautiful women are as they shared their heartbreaking stories of rape. It only takes one sexual assault, one rape, one domestic abuse to cause a permanent trauma in ones life. I urge you to build relationships with the women in your life, be it your sisters, mother(s), friends, coworkers. Have a coffee and talk. Build relationships and not barriers between you and the next women that may need you.

REVIEW 100 WIK: ARTFUL READER    I finished this book the other day, after making my way through it slowly, and I've been trying to gather my thoughts. Those testimonies have been decontructed and put in an order of themes, to highlight a bigger pattern. All of which is well thought through and respectfully done should be noted. Reading it is difficult, but vital, because of what it brings up. We need to continue to bear witness and open up a space to talk about these things. Breaking the circle of shame, stop the victim blaming.

REVIEW 100 WIK: READINGRUBY      Simply delving into the, sometimes drastically, different stories of 100 different women’s experiences with sexual assault, abuse and rape was mind opening. We need more education on the topic and more literature addressing these issues.

REVIEW 100 WIK: WILDLING GIRL    This is such a powerful and brave book. A very important read. I cannot begin to imagine the pain and horror that these women have gone through. I am in awe of their bravery, for finding the courage to speak up. And since it’s Sexual Assault Awareness month, I am encouraging you all to read this book and read their stories.
