MEDIA REVIEWS
"A compelling combination of public and personal examples and analysis of violence against women that challenges taken-for-granted frameworks and perspectives. This book deeply touched my sensibilities as a survivor of violence and a feminist anti-violence activist."
-Margo Okazawa-Rey, co-editor of "Women's Lives
"Russo addresses feminist theory, violence against women, pornography, the media, racial profiling, sexual conflict and contradiction, the importance of telling stories of resistance as well as victimization, and strategies for a 'a feminist practice of antiracism.' Penetrating, challenging essays."
-Booklist
"[A]n illuminating and innovative analysis of feminist strategies for organizing against the violence that is so often a daily part of women's lives..Russo challenges, expands, and transforms feminist work against violence. Russo contributes a powerful and eloquent voice to the ongoing work for justice for all women. Taking Back Our Lives willre-energize and mobilize the feminist movement, as well as all others committed to the struggle to abolish violence against women."
-Lourdes Torres, co-editor of "Third World Women and the Politics of Feminism
"Ann Russo is one of those rare writers who reveals very hard things and poses really tough questions in a way that is so candid and so direct that we, her readers, don't turn away from those realities but pursue, with her, the answers. This is a radical feminist analysis of violence; radical in the true sense of going to the very core of what causes violence against women in all their diversity. I was moved by Ann Russo's book--and energized."
-Cynthia Enloe, author of" The International Politics ofMilitarizing Women's Lives
"Eloquent and honest....Russo voices the dismay and frustration many of us feel when we confront women's violence, but she also instills hope by challenging the feminist movement to own this problem, thus moving us forward toward workable feminist solutions."
-Claire M. Renzetti, co-editor of "The Sourcebook on Violence Against Women
