Believe Me: How Trusting Women Can Change the World
by Jessica Valenti + Jaclyn Friedman

What would happen if we believed women? This groundbreaking anthology offers a potent rallying cry and theory of change.

Harvey Weinstein. Brett Kavanaugh. Jeffrey Epstein. Donald Trump. The most infamous abusers in modern American history are being called out as women speak up publicly to expose behavior that was previously only whispered about -- and its both making an impact, and sparking a backlash. From the leading, agenda-setting feminist editors of Yes Means Yes, Believe Me brings readers into the evolving landscape of the movement against sexual violence, and outlines how trusting women is the critical foundation for future progress.

In Believe Me, contributors ask and answer the crucial question: What would happen if we didnt just believe women, but acted as though they matter? If we take womens experiences of online harassment seriously, it will transform the internet. If we listen to and center survivors, we could revolutionize our systems of justice. If we believe Black women when they talk about pain, we will save countless lives.

With contributions from many of the most important voices in feminism today, Believe Me is an essential roadmap for the #MeToo era and beyond. 2020, 336 pages.
