You Are Not Alone : Stories from the front lines of womanhood
October 7, 2014

On May 24, 2014, Twitter exploded with stories of women’s experiences of harassment and assault in their daily lives using the hashtag #YesAllWomen. With the Twitter conversation as inspiration, 10 women came together to share their stories with each other and the world. They dug within themselves to find wisdom…but they also revealed their own inner conflict about their experiences and their views of the world. They were willing to be vulnerable and admit not only how they have been hurt, but also how they have hurt others. Through telling our stories – and hearing the stories of others – we learn that there is much more that unites us than divides us. That is the purpose of this book. To remind you: You are not alone. I hope that you will hear those words repeating in your head as you read this book and realize how true they are: YOU ARE NOT ALONE
