WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for WomenSurprisingly few books about survival of rape have been written by women; even fewer book offer solid information how and when to prosecute rape, and what you can expect from the experience. This resource offers both. Designed primarily as a self-help manual for rape survivors, Recovering From Rape gives guidance for getting through the day-to-day process of putting your life back together after rape, with each section addressing first the survivor and then the significant other. Linda Ledray is a clinical psychologist who counsels rape survivors and has spent 15 years researching rape. Going beyond personal recovery, a chapter is devoted to persecuting and convicting the rapist, and another to preventing rape in our society. Our legal system and societal attitudes offer infuriatingly little support for women who have been raped, a fact which makes resources like this a critical response to the crisis.
