to be a woman: the book

“An effortlessly heartfelt debut full of encouragement and lessons for this and future generations”

 – The Student Newspaper | The University of Edinburgh

product description:
an honest, personal and at times, funny account into the many emotions individuals are subjected to following an experience of sexual assault. Fiercely empowering, maybe it is also a love letter to all young women, especially to those who have been subjected to sexual assault and violence, as this is sadly far too common for all women. Written as the older sister or friend you might be looking for right now, the author opens up about her own path through the recovery process in order to make you feel less alone and to normalise the thousands of overwhelming emotions you might well be experiencing.

“To women who have been subjected to any form of sexual violence & violence (& even those who haven’t):  This is a beautiful book, written by my beautiful friend & I cannot recommend it enough. I have sat on my living room floor laughing out loud, ugly crying & feeling so many emotions in between. She has poured her heart out into these words & I sincerely hope they reach the people who need to hear them most. It is raw, honest, relatable, emotional, empowering & inspirational. Not only does it address the complex emotions & questions women may have after rape & sexual assault, but it de-stigmatises conversations about rape & discusses issues at the root of our society. It captures the essence of what it means to be a woman & everything that comes with it.”  - Alex

“I loved the structure of the book – all the chapters really build on each other. I loved how personal and chatty it was – I really liked you writing style. I loved the little poems and quotes that were included at the start of each chapter – I thought that was lovely and shows what influenced the author. I also loved the chapter on ‘Everything I wish I had known when I was 15’. I just thought the book was great and will definitely be recommending it to my friends. As someone, who hasn’t had the same experience as you, it was so important to read and understand a personal perspective and the different stages and how everyone copes it very differently. I have learnt a lot from it. The journal was great too!” - Esther



“It was well written and powerful. It felt like someone was speaking to me rather than reading a text off the pages, an uncomfortable comfortable, so in that sense it was hard to read. It made me feel like when my daughter told me her story; emotionally charged.”


“The book was phenomenal…I gobbled it up, I will probably read it through again too to properly absorb it – I got a bit excited to read some passages that I related to so much.”


“I've just finished To Be A Woman. I need to say thank you. Thank you for being open and vulnerable. Thank you for being funny and relatable. Thank you for being yourself and talking about the things we women have to go through. I feel empowered and reminded of all the great friendships I have. You are right, being a woman really is beautiful...”

"sensitive & super engaging"
