HEY Y’ALL. I HAVE BIG NEWS.
But I’m sharing it with you in about a week from now. There will be pictures. And confetti.
For now I’ll tell you about a book I’m DYING to read.
There’s a few things you may not know about me: I have an obsession with photography, society, and really fuzzy socks. This post is about society. THIS POST is about a book about society that needs to GET ON MY SHELF.
In Asking for It, Kate Harding answers those questions in the same blunt, bullshit-free voice that’s made her a powerhouse feminist blogger. Combining in-depth research with practical knowledge, Asking for It makes the case that twenty-first century America—where it’s estimated that out of every 100 rapes only 5 result in felony convictions—supports rapists more effectively than victims. Harding offers ideas and suggestions for addressing how we as a culture can take rape much more seriously without compromising the rights of the accused.
