We Need to Talk

⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 out of 5 stars

Title:               We Need to Talk

Author:           Emily Hunt

Publisher:        Ad Lib Publishers

Format:           ARC, ebook

Publication:     1st of June 2023

In this non-fiction position, Emily Hunt tells her heartbreaking story. We follow her narration from when she woke up in a bed with a stranger and through her prolonged fight to have him recognised as a rapist and convicted for the crime. Disappointed by all the institutions that were supposed to help the women in her situation, she starts a battle for justice and a change in the way we perceive rape.

We Need to Talk is an autobiography and an interesting analysis of how our society understands sexual violence. The author presents the popular myths about rape and explains how they are harmful. Her arguments are supported by case studies and lots of sociological data. Emily Hunt points out the lack of support for victims, who are often treated with suspicion and undergo close scrutiny. She sees the reasons for this injustice in the way sexual violence is sometimes dismissed or ridiculed in the social discourse. I believe We Need to Talk to be a fascinating and essential position.

Thank you, NetGalley and publisher, for providing the arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
