Product Details


“An essential book for our times by a writer at the height of her powers. Gripping, informed and accessible, this will be an instant feminist classic.”
—Laurie Penny, author of Unspeakable Things

“This is a book for today. Mithu Sanyal is insightful, thoughtful, and provocative. She encourages us to think about sexual violence in new ways and, most importantly, has challenging things to suggest about the way we should deal with rapists. A ‘must read’ for anyone curious about sex and sexual harms.”
—Joanna Bourke, author of Rape: A History from 1860 to the Present

“The shockingly mundane debate over #MeToo has met its match in Mithu Sanyal. In her elegant, crisply written book, she peeks into the dark crannies we want to avoid. Joining her on this journey is the only way to understand the origins and context of the current problem.”
—Vanessa Grigoriadis, author of Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus

“If our culture is going to change, we need books like Rape. Mithu Sanyal is able to see past salacious scandal, simplified narratives of who rapes and why, and the usual carceral feminist response to sexual harm. As vexing as it is thoughtful, Sanyal produces original thought on a subject that is pontificated over more often than understood. It feels instantly essential.”
—Jessa Crispin, author of Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto

“Offers a refreshing perspective on how and what feminists should prioritise.”
Australian Book Review
