* * * Recommended read * * * 100% PROFITS DONATED TO survivors' network

Thoughtful, provocative and intelligent, this game-changing book looks at sexual assault and the global discourse on rape from the viewpoint of Sohaila Abdulali, survivor, writer, former counsellor and activist.


Maya Angelou's poetry - lyrical and dramatic, exuberant and playful - speaks of love, longing, partings; of Saturday night partying, and the smells and sounds of Southern cities; of freedom and shattered dreams.
