Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Julie Hudson
Sexual harassment and violence against women are truly important issues that need to be addressed, and certainly in a manner able to reach young adults as they form their value systems. These two books make a valid attempt and although not perfect, are certainly worth the effort. This Library of Social Activism series aims information at high school level students, yet the writing level and length (about sixty pages each), can be useful for the middle schooler as well. The books encourage joining organizations such as the National Organization for Women and the National Women's Political Caucus. Working Together Against Sexual Harassment, whose cover is a close-up of Anita Hill, contains very few details of individual cases. If one is not familiar with Clarence Thomas, Bob Packwood, or the incidents surrounding the Tailhook Convention, reading this book would not aid understanding of the outrage these people and events inspire. On the positive side, there is a very valid chart on the difference between harassment and flirting, which works well with a list of questions titled "How Do I Know It's Harassment?" Narrated as if real students were dealing with the issue in their school, it certainly works to stimulate questioning and thinking, making it worthwhile. Working Together Against Violence Against Women is more direct, stark, and effective. There are no "pretend" students-just the facts. My only concern is that although it is geared for the high school student, the author presents "Steps to Help a Friend" that involve serious adult responsibilities. That puts a great deal of pressure on the untrained, well-meaning teen friend, but it does a good job of bringing an important issue out into the open. Both books contain short glossaries of appropriate terms, as well as suggested reading lists and useful contact organizations. Each has a short index, but these books are meant to be read cover to cover. Glossary. Index. Further Reading. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles: Working Together Against Sexual Harassment and Working Together Against Violence Against Women. VOYA Codes: 3Q 3P M J S (Readable without serious defects, Will appeal with pushing, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-The appeal of these two series titles is their colorful, attention-grabbing covers and their brevity. Addressing issues that are relevant to teens, each book introduces a problem and advises students on how to get involved. Klee focuses on the causes and possible cures for school violence, while Sherman concentrates on violence against women. Both authors introduce their topics by framing them within the context of our society. Next, actions being taken at the national, state, and local levels by both government and private agencies are explored. Finally, things that YAs can do to help themselves, a friend, their community, or the country are plainly stated. Readers are confronted with thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter. The black-and-white and full-color photos interspersed throughout the texts do not always support the content. For example, in School Violence, a caption that states that "Many teens are exposed to scenes of violence from television shows..." sits underneath a picture of two adolescents watching a program that is obviously not violent. However, these information-packed books will work well as hi/lo titles or as springboards to more challenging sources.-Marilyn Makowski, Greenwood High School, SC
