Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors - Anne K. Ream, Patricia Evans

I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.

A powerful and inspiring collection of stories from survivors of rape and sexual assault.

This is truly a remarkable work. Ream provides the stories of many survivors spanning over race, sex, age, and profession. Each story provides details into the survivor's experience, which is often difficult to read, but ends with the inspiring way each person changed due to the experience and how it influenced his or her fight against rape, sexual assault, and sexual violence.

This is an amazing work that takes each person's unique experiences and combines them to create an inspiring work of activism.

Statistic and resources are provided at the end of the book, which include sources for getting help as well as advocacy and services to fight against sexual violence.
