OrangeReviewStarIn light of the #MeToo movement, psychologist Engel (The Emotionally Abusive Relationship; Partners in Recovery) provides women with hope, comfort, and a number of preventative strategies in reacting to and recovering from sexual assault. Engel points out that empowerment comes from the inside out and teaches women how to honor their bodies, own and release righteous anger, and learn to let go of "nice girl" behavior. She discusses why it's so hard for women to say "no" and outlines concrete strategies for setting boundaries and stopping acquaintance and stranger rape.
VERDICT This comprehensive book supplies women and interested general readers with everything they need to know, from healing after childhood abuse to ending sexual harassment. Essential for all women.
