Product Details


“‘All my life when I’ve tried to talk to men about sexism,’ Woods writes, ‘my main obstacle has been trying to convince them, quite simply, that it exists.’ Incident by incident, this memoir makes the case in stark personal terms.” The New York Times Book Review

“Brilliant and simple, this is sure to advance understanding of a topic of intense national reckoning. Much of the sexism Woods experienced took place before her twenty-first birthday; teen readers will find validation and solidarity.” —Courtney Eathorne, Booklist (starred review)

“This text is not only a vital read for those who have experienced gender violence, but also for those looking to enact real allyship and create real change in the world. I suspect this text will become a vital tool for teaching, reclaiming, and collectively mourning for years to come.” —Lambda Literary

“In 100 Times: A Memoir of Sexism, Chavisa Woods tells a linear but fragmented personal story of growing up and coming of age in a misogynist culture. . . The chronological arrangement and pared-down writing style underscore the injustice of each of these incidents, which include bullying, sexual harassment, assault, and rape … By articulating the full range of her own experiences, Woods stresses the need for a dramatic shift in societal attitudes if we ever want to live in a culture in which rape and sexist discrimination are no longer routine.” —Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, BOMB Magazine

“Illuminating the ways in which sexism targets women and infects the society at large, Woods shares her experiences with daring openness. In clear, precise prose, 100 TIMES is interesting, educational, dramatic and emotional. A must read.” —Beverly Gologorsky, author of Every Body Has A Story

“Her deceptively plain method makes for a powerful double portrait: on one hand, we trace the hulking outlines of a distorted social order; on the other, we grow deeply absorbed in the story of a young queer artist’s courageous self-making. I was touched and thrilled by the activist passion behind this memoir, which belongs on the shelf with feminist classics like Judy Grahn’s ‘Common Women Poems’ and Audre Lorde’s Zami.” —Jan Clausen, author of Apples & Oranges: My Journey Through Sexual Identity
