What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape


Product Information

"Sohaila Abdulali was the first Indianrape survivor to speak out abouther experience. Gang-raped as a teenager in Mumbai and indignant at the deafening silence on the issue in India, she wrote an article for awomen’s magazine questioning how we perceive rape and rape victims. Thirty years later she saw the story go viral in the wake of the fatal 2012 Delhi rape and the global outcry that followed.

Drawing on three decades of grappling with the issue personally and professionally, and onher work with hundreds ofother survivors, she explores what we think about rape and what we say.

She also explores what we don’tsay, and asks pertinent questions about who gets raped and who rapes,about consent and desire, about redemption and revenge, and abouthow we raise our sons. Most importantly, she asks: does rape always have to be a life-defining event, or is it possible to recover joy?"
