The Women's Review of Books - Linda M. Williams

[The book conveys] the damage wrought by [black rape victims'] silence...and should be read by anyone who cares about women and rape....[M]akes a major contribution to a literature that is devoid of research on or detailed accounts of the [womens'] experiences....[The stories] tell of survival.
