I’ve had two books on rape/rape culture published recently–because for some reason, I thought working on two books at the same time would not be a problem. I could not have done it though if my co-editor on the Rape Cultures book, Tuba Inal, had not done so much of the work. I forgot to announce this second one on my blog, so here are both of them. They are both two-volume reference books, and in addition to editing them, I also wrote chapters in each one.
This one just came out. Amazon says August 31.
Kudos for your dedication to the subject, Merril. If only it weren’t necessary.
Yes, exactly, and thank you, Ken.
What Ken said. Congratulations and keep on shouting.
Thanks, Jane! I will.
Congratulations, Merril. You’re doing important work contributing to the body of knowledge on the topic.
Thank you very much, Carol.
A young woman at the gym told me today she had just seen my post about one of the books on FB and thanked me for my work. It turns out she was raped about two weeks ago.
Unfortunately, this is a problem that doesn’t go away. What has changed is that young woman felt okay telling you. Good for her.
Congratulations Merril. Important (sadly) subject.
Thank you, Kerfe. Yes.
Congratulations from me, too
Thank you, Derrick!
Congratulations! I saw your comment on Bjorn’s post about the topic and appreciated it enormously.
Thank you so much!
Very powerful and meaningful books of information and history on a tough subject which used to be hidden or “swept under the carpet.” Thank you for your service of time and hard research, Merril.
Thank you very much for your kind words, Robin!
Having worked in the battered woman’s shelter in Lancaster Ohio for only 18 months and representing 180 children in that time as the Child Advocate, I’m sure there is so much we all could learn from your tomes of research. I respect and am proud of your work in this area!
Awww–thank you again, Robin! 🙂
You’re a multi-faceted lady with heart, Merril. Congratulations! ❤️
Thank you so much, dear Rose!
