About the Book

The #MeToo movement has revealed an insidious epidemic that plagues society. Sexual assault is easy to deny that it happened at all—both for the victim and the perpetrator. Often there is no evidence. It can take years for some victims to find their voice around sexual assault, if at all. Meanwhile the perpetrators’ misuse of sexual power can deny their culpability forever.

Dr. Lucy Papillon relies on her own #MeToo experiences as well as case studies from eighteen years of clinical practice to explore rape culture and its effects on women, examine the ways in which trauma and mistreatment can change a woman’s entire life, and demonstrate the necessity of facing darkness to reach the light of equality. Dr. Papillon blends personal narratives with practical tools to invoke awareness in both genders of how systemic and pervasive the problem has become while gently suggesting helpful methods to break through barriers to effect positive change and inspire those suffering from abuse to reclaim their power.

How Dare You! shares compelling stories and useful tools to paint a poignant portrait of present-day culture and empower women and those suffering from abuse to participate in their own journey toward awareness and recovery.
