What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape

To książka o kulturze gwałtu – bolesna i mocno osobista, bo autorka była ofiarą zbiorowego gwałtu w wieku kilkunastu lat. Każdy kolejny rozdział to próba zrozumienia – zarówno kultury gwałtu w ogóle, jak i swojej traumy.

Rape culture. The totality of all the big and little things we do, say and believe that ultimately lead to the conclusion that it’s okay to rape. Perhaps not any one of the little things: serving your son first like a good India mother doesn’t mean you condone rape; making fun of lady drivers doesn’t mean you condone rape; saving for your daughter’s dowry doesn’t mean you condone rape; saying “boys will be boys” on the playground doesn’t mean you condone rape. But each of these chips away at women’s and girls’ self-respect, and gives boys permission to feel a little more entitled, a little more important, a little more as though they have a free pass to maraud through the world and take without thinking.

Abdulali nie pisze tylko o Indiach – to książka uniwersalna i lektura obowiązkowa, nie tylko dla kobiet. Autorka porusza takie wątki jak gwałt małżeński, o braku wystarczającego wsparcia dla mężczyzn, którzy byli ofiarami przemocy seksualnej. O krajach, w których najlepszym rozwiązaniem wydaje się zaaranżowanie ślubu między gwałcicielem a ofiarą.

Opis wydawcy

Sohaila Abdulali was gang-raped as a teenager in Bombay. Indignant at the silence on the issue in India, she wrote an article for a woman’s magazine questioning how we perceive rape and rape victims. Thirty years later her story went viral. Drawing on her own experience, her work with survivors as the head of a rape crisis centre in Boston, her research, and three decades of grappling with the issue personally and professionally, What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape is about changing the conversation around rape culture, questioning our assumptions, and deciding how we want to raise the next generation.
