You Are Not Alone – Author Leah Carey
Stories from the front lines of womanhood.
Wed. 1/28, 6 PM, Bradford Public Library

Almost every woman knows the experience of feeling unsafe, whether it’s on the street, in her office, or even in her home. In the summer of 2014, ten women from around the world came together to tell stories of womanhood – both about harassment and assault, but also about their hopes and vision for a healthier future. This book is their treatise to the world: We are women, and we matter.

This book speaks to both genders. For women, the stories demonstrate that no matter what you’ve experienced, you are not alone. The stories will help men to understand what the women in their lives are experiencing and how they can participate in ending gender violence.  It is a reminder of the importance of  practicing respect in all our encounters.
