From "Speak" To "Shout" On Sexual Assault

Apr 12, 2019

Laurie Halse Anderson's groundbreaking 1999 novel, "Speak," is credited with opening a new phase in the national dialogue about sexual assault and consent.

In a unique memoir told in free-verse poetry, Shout, Anderson shares her own experience of sexual assault. 

The book denounces society's failures in dealing with sexual aggression, and boosts the people with the courage to speak up in the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
