Overview

Roar: True Tales of Women Warriors is a collection of true, personal stories about womanhood. There are stories in this book to which many women will be able to relate. I have been there too. I'm with you, sister. There are stories in this book that are meant to inspire. Strong women, being powerful. There are stories in this book of heartbreak and regret that cry out for change. If only I hadn't. If only I could've. If only I did. Finally, there are stories in this book that are meant to illustrate - for any man or woman who hasn't been there. These women have.
Whether their story is about taking care of a loved one, being a mother, or leaving an abusive relationship, the 21 women in this book are not being quiet anymore. Neither should you. Keep talking to your friends when "he" does something. And talk to him, too. And them. And everyone. We shouldn't have to smile and smooth things over. We shouldn't be quiet. We are women. Let us roar.
Stories collected and edited by Better Said Than Done, a storytelling organization headquartered in Fairfax, VA. Visit us at www.bettersaidthandone.com to learn more.
