Summary

Summary

This groundbreaking study of lesbian survivors of childhood sexual abuse is a powerful and critically needed entry in the field of survival and recovery literature. 60 courageous lesbian survivors share their personal stories of recovery from the earliest stages of remembering the abuse, to understanding and ultimately overcoming the defense mechanisms that children adopt to survive it, to addressing the endemic feelings of horrible isolation and shame. This collection provides victims ways in which to become survivors, and endows them with a vision of hope for the future.
