10 Excellent Memoirs about the Sexual Violence Survivor’s Journey

Would You Like to Stay Connected?

Glad to see that we are in a season of listening to the powerful voices of Survivors.  Excellent!  

What is most unfortunate is that there are so many out there.  This week I gathered up a cross section of a few memoirs that I have read about the healing journey.  Each one is truly authentic.  I don’t think that any two are the same.  

While it isn’t “good” that they had to endure such an inhumane level of pain and suffering, I think that by that last sentence, you might come away inspired.

Here is a list of 10.

Feel free to write to us and suggest others along with why you think readers might gain something from your suggested title.

 I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Dr. Maya Angelou

           Foxy: My Life in Three Acts by Pam Grier

    Miss America by Day by Marilyn Van Debur
