Undo: The Poetry and Story of HER
by Cheryl R Cowtan
Price verified 4 hours ago
How can you protect yourself and your daughter from relationship violence? Start with "her" stories.
Sometimes witty, sometimes shocking, but always pro-woman empowerment, this evocative telling explores relationships gone very wrong.
From the restructuring of ancient texts to vivid depictions of Canadian bush parties, this raw collection of witty stories, quirky graphics, and stunning poetry tackles male violence, coming-of-age journeys, and the female experience.
Light on feminist theories, but heavy on emotional impact, you will be affected, whether through how you think about male violence or how you remember it.
This book is meant and written to be evocative (to trigger emotion). The stories and poems within are meant to capture your heart, light your concern for the future of women, and maybe even change how you view victims and perpetrators.
Remember, it's not about crying, it's about releasing and then, strengthening. It's not about turning away, it's about seeing that which we can barely stand, and that which we can barely understand, and then changing the view.
For those who ever wished they had never said "yes" to a man, and for those who said "no", but were not heard.

"Did you hear what happened last night at the bush party?" Sage asks.
"What?" I cloak my interest by lighting a smoke. Sucking the grey fumes in through my mouth, I show off my strong, white teeth. Then, I blow it out through my nose. Dragon fierce.
"Leslie, she got raped," she says in an offhand manner.
I lean forward, all my attention on her now.
"What do you mean, raped?" I ask.
"You know-gang raped?"
She steps back, seems unsure.
"Who did it?" I fist my hands and pin her against the brick wall with the intensity of my glare.
"They all did."
She pauses for effect like an actress. I wait for it, daring her with a narrowing of my lids.
"Dayle was there, too." She drops her bomb.
