So many of our lives have been touched by sexually inappropriate behavior and even sexual violence. As boomer women, we can’t help but reflect on how the social norms for our times were different. But young women today are coming to the fore and making real strides in speaking out to change things. In fact, this is one area where women have definitely “come a long way, baby!”
Lacy M. Johnson wrote about her horrendous experience of being kidnapped and raped in her highly acclaimed book, The Other Side. Now, she is exploring the aftermath of her experience and her thoughts regarding true justice for the perpetrator and herself in a riveting and thoughtful collection of essays called The Reckonings.
Lacy joined me on Feisty Side of Fifty Radio to share all about it. If have been touched by sexual assault in any form and care about the #metoo movement you are going to want to be sure to catch this show!
