Shout Out by Maria Ochoa

Book Description

Shout Out was born of the hope that exists when women reach out to one another. Included are critical examinations, creative nonfiction, and poetry that explore a range of responses to the injustices that women worldwide sustain in their daily lives: physical abuse, murder, rape, poverty, and psychological terror. Many of the contributors are living proof of the remarkable and inspiring work that individuals and organizations are doing to end war, rape, murder, slavery, sex trade, domestic violence, poverty, and other forms of oppression. Others chose to share their struggles, pain, and knowledge in order to educate and change the way women are maltreated. Shout Out seeks to answer many questions, among them: How do so many women survive the violence of their daily lives? Where do they find hope? How can this violence still occur? This work gives voice to women whose stories are equally important they are difficult to fathom. The goal of collecting these expressions together is to open the dialogue and acknowledge the wrongdoing, and in so doing find out how we might enact change. "
