Publisher's Summary

Featuring a new preface by feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and a new foreword by Salamishah Tillet, PhD, Rutgers University Professor of African American Studies and Creative Writing

“Essential.... It is nonpolemical, lucid, and speaks eloquently not only to the victims of acquaintance rape but to all those caught in its net.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

With the advent of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and almost daily new reports about rape, both on and off campuses, Robin Warshaw’s I Never Called It Rape is even more relevant today than when it was first published in 1988. The sad truth is that statistics on date rape have not changed in more than 30 years. That our culture enables rape is not just shown by the numbers: the outbreak of complaints against alleged rapists from Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein to Matt Lauer and President Donald Trump has further amplified this horrifying reality.

With more than 80,000 copies sold to date, I Never Called It Rape serves as a guide to understanding rape as a cultural phenomenon - providing women and men with strategies to address our rape endemic. It gives survivors the context and resources to help them heal from their experiences, and pulls the wool from all our eyes regarding the pervasiveness of rape and sexual assault in our society.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Racist beyond belief

CIA-mole Steinem started off with an extremely racist intro. Besides painting White people as "entitled" and White males as rapists and oppressors, Steinem rattles off a whole lot of other inaccuracies about "native Americans." She paints these tribes as one big feminist utopia. In actual fact, native American tribes are very diverse (unlike the fairy tale idiocy of Steinem's just-so story) but none were pro-female. Then the preface starts, which is another anti-White diatribe by someone with a name I cannot spell. The hatred for White women by the Jewish Steinem and her cast of all non-white tribalists, is so palpable that it's chilling. No mention of the fact that White women are singled out by every group of male for rape and other sexual offences. Just one example is that there are 3000 black on white rapes each month (18,000 per year) while there are zero white on black rapes. These facts don't fit the narrative, so of course what passes as "feminism" ignores it. By the way, this tripe bears no resemblance to real feminism, which was created by White women who actually got things done (like getting all women the vote -- something that we've never been thanked for). Listen to this hate-filled screed if you want to know how much White people are hated in their own country.
