Take it as a Compliment by Maria Stoian

26251358

Book cover courtesy Edinburgh Feminist Review. Cover has a pink background and drawings of a crowd of people in purple and gold tones. The back of one woman is shown with a man pressed against her and she is struggling, not wanting to be touched (though at first glance it looks like they’re dancing).

***Trigger warning: the stories told in this book deal with sexual harassment, assault, rape, etc

 

This book is amazing, and it should be read by anyone who will not be triggered by such a topic. I appreciate that the stories were told not just by women who have experienced rape or harassment; there were at least two stories shared by men. Most of the stories make my heart ache. The last few pages of this book include a guide of “what to do” to support the people in your life who may have been raped or harassed.
