September Women's Voices

We have chosen In A Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers  as our Women's Voices selection for September. Journalist Bernice Yeung takes readers on a journey across the country, introducing us to women who came to America to escape grinding poverty only to encounter sexual violence in the United States. We invite you to read this important book, then join us on Wednesday, September 26th, at 7:00 for a discussion and book signing with Ms. Yeung. Details here. A percentage of our entire day's sales at Bookshop Santa Cruz on September 26th will be donated to Time's Up Legal Defense Fund.

Further reading on sexual violence against women, recommended by our staff:
