Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This distressing anthology—equal parts manifesto, testimony and manual—gathers over 40 scholarly essays, spoken word pieces, poems and short memoirs about war, rape, murder, atrocities, slavery, sex trade, domestic violence, poverty, and other forms of oppression faced by women of color around the globe. The first section of this neatly structured collection addresses domestic violence in the United States; the second shifts to the international sphere, while the third focuses on state-sanctioned and military violence against women. The heavily personal fourth section segues to an action-oriented concluding chapter. Particularly noteworthy is the original research of Hosai Ehsan's The Prevalence of Domestic Violence in Afghan Households and of Nandini Gunewardena's Hidden Transcripts: Women's Suicide as Resistance in Sri Lanka. Sharmila Lodhia offers a fresh perspective in Selective Storytelling: A Critique of U.S. Media Coverage Regarding Violence Against Indian Women, as does Dai Sil Kim-Gibson in 'Comfort Women Want Justice, Not Comfort. Activists provide useful, practical advice (e.g., Nalini Shekar and Mukta Sharangpani's Culture and Truth: Learning from a Transatlantic Trafficking Case. This highly personal and political anthology will unsettle, inform and inspire feminists in particular. Artwork not seen by PW. (Jan.)

Review

"More than a book, Shout Out is a call to action. It's an important document of the horrific violence facing women of color today and the powerful ways in which women are standing up and fighting back in our hometowns and across the globe. It will move you to tears and rage, and to reflect on the efforts that have succeeded and the work that still needs to be done." -- Colorlines Magazine

I'm pretty sure the only people that buy this book are forced to buy it while taking the professors class. Just in case you were thinking about buying this book for fun or learning outside of being forced to purchase. DON'T BUY IT. Absolute waste of money and time. The book is just some strewn together personal accounts of horrific things that happened to women. These essays were submitted by the women who lived thru these ordeals and the author is now profiting from them. This book is supposed to teach women to find and use their personal accounts of violence, write about them, and then find power from them. But without the author telling you that in class. This book just comes off as a bunch of poorly written essays that are overly graphic and frankly bad and hard to read. I would rather just watch a documentary on the holocaust if I wanted to feel sad.

The book has a really odd mix of stories. Maybe its just me, but I much prefer an even balance in a categorized collection. Some of the stories were overtly graphic and uncomfortable to read. It revealed a lot of the mentality and circumstance, but it's pretty nauseating if you youre a softy. Know what youre getting into when you make this buy--not everything is empowering our optimistic.
