Format: Paperback
Transforming a Rape Culture, by Milkweed Editions is a book that has input from thirty-seven active feminists; twenty-five women and twelve men, who all play different roles in life. Their occupations range from book and article writers, to psychologists, speakers, teachers, parents, and more. Having many authors, instead of just one, gives this book an advantage over one author's opinion. It was definitely written to spark an emotion in everybody to make change. The book's topic effects and influences everybody in some way in life to make a change, even if it's just within themselves. It succeeded in doing so. The book analyzes the factors in our culture, which promote and support not only rape, but also sexual assault, and harassment. It also presents ideas and methods to end it. All the sections throughout this book are linked nicely together giving it a strong analytical flow from all the authors - all seeking nothing less than a fundamental culture change with a method achieve it through the change of power, gender, race, and religion.

Format: Paperback
This anthology should be read by anyone, male or female, who is disgusted living in a world of violence. The individual essays are drawn from a wide band of opinions, experiences, and ideas making the entire book a powerful case for the end of violence (esspecially violence against women). It is esspecially eye-opening for men (like myself) who after reading this anthology will find themselves questioning thier own ideas and relationships with women.

Format: Paperback
This is a phenomenal book written by some of the most influential, feminist writers of the '90s. Because it is a complilation of the thoughts of a variety of writers both male and female, you really get a well-rounded, inspirational view of how we can change our world for the better. I guarantee that it will make you mad, it will make you think, it will sadden you at times and make you want to change the world.
I have this book highlit and dog eared from cover to cover noting ideas, dreams and writing in my thoughts in the margins. I did not necessarily agree with everything that was said in this book, but it sure provoked me, none-the-less. Both men and women can benefit from reading this... it does not offend. It mearly invokes thought and, hopefully, change. We desperately need it.

Format: Paperback
It is amazing that this book was written over two decades ago because the themes within it ring as true now in 2015 as they must have when it was first published. The negative reviews here are clearly from the kind of individuals who believe rape doesn't exist and tout inaccurate and outdated statistics about false rape accusations. Since research demonstrates only about 6% of reported cases of rape are actually false accusations, the number of reported rapes that are not prosecuted and the embarrassing low number of rapists that are convicted and spend time in jail (2% of reported rapists) should be more concerning.

This book is thought provoking and an excellent complication written by men and women from a variety of racial/ethnic backgrounds. Essential reading.
