Despite numerous advancements and achievements across the world, the issue of women’s rights, equality, and safety continues to remain an unsolved issue. While women’s status varies widely across the globe, one common thread (among many others) that links women together is the issue of sexual abuse. This is a reality that exists in almost every nation, whether developed, developing, or underdeveloped. It also transcends religious boundaries. The other startling reality is that most women do not report sexual abuse due to various reasons and society at large tends to also pass judgments on women who speak up. The issue of sexual abuse is more complicated in our Indian society due largely due to the stigma attached to discussing sexual topics with our children or with other family members. Most often, the perpetrators of sexual abuse are either part of the extended family, friends, or acquaintances. This book aims to tackle these issues directly by sharing the author’s personal experiences and showcases the grit shown by her in overcoming trauma.
