Each chapter is a survivor's personal story of survival told in his or her own words. They represent a truly inclusive group of individuals, including males and females, sexual orientations, cultures, lifestyles, and geographical locations. The sexual assaults discussed in "Voices of Courage" range from child molestation, incest, clergy abuse, "date rape drug" facilitated, acquaintance rape, marital rape, and stranger attack to other forms of sexual assault.
The editor who brought these 12 survivors together to create "Voices of Courage" is critically-acclaimed author and nationally renown speaker, Michael Domitrz.
