Kindra Austin
Dec 05, 2018 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)  ·  review of another edition
We Will Not Be Silenced is a groundbreaking, ambitious project that calls us all to action. The contributors to this anthology have bravely poured out their hearts in hopes of making connections with other survivors, and with the determination to make a positive change. These pages breathe with hope, a fierce devotion to life, and the courage to say, "We deserve to be heard. We deserve respect. We are human beings, and our sexual assault does not have to define us."

This is an anthology that is hard to discuss without mentioning how important this is as a social document. The concept of giving a voice to those who have felt unheard is vital and especially so in the contemporary environment. Having said that, this anthology is more than just a statement, it stands as a survey of contemporary writing.

As is the nature of the anthology beast, the writing, although of consistently high and often outstanding quality, doesn't always appeal to to me. This is not to

I am biased because as one of the four editors for this incredible project, I recognize its value in ways beyond the obvious. However, this review serves for all the brave and courageous authors who contributed their truth and their work to make this anthology what we dreamed it could be. If you are a survivor, if you work with survivors, if you are moved by the #metoo movement or if you are just a compassionate human being who loves poetry, then chances are you will find a lot within these page ...more

We Will Not Be Silenced is a collection of poetry, prose, essays and art which shares the lived experience of sexual harassment and sexual assault. It has been pieced together and pioneered by four incredible, courageous women who, in telling their truth, have a raised a chorus of ninety-one other writers and artists. Austin, Daquin, Finch and Ray have undoubtedly created more than a piece of art. They have blown wind into the sails of change and made a stand which has already altered the lives ...more

When I began reading We Will Not Be Silenced, I was shocked at what waited for me. It wasn’t just the staggering statistics from the Forward. It wasn’t just the vivid, albeit brief, moments of just a few things a survivor may have experienced. It was the onslaught of my own history coming back up my throat like bile. While this anthology needs to be read with great care – especially for those that have experienced some kind of abuse or assault in their lives, as it will no doubt be triggering – ...more

We Will not be silenced is a living testament of how the collective voices of survivors can be turned into the roaring declaration of strength, determination, and courage. It is a powerful exposition of how the courage of the survivors can be a shining beacon for those whose voices have gone unheard. There is a lot going between the pages as the survivors have poured their heart out. It indeed is triggering and has to read with utmost care. An anthology which is not only a piece of art but a sta ...more

This is such an important collection, and though it's categorized as a book for women on Amazon, just about every idea in here is applicable to anyone who's ever experienced sexual assault on any level. It's a beautiful collection filled with all sorts of writers and pain and power. If you haven't already, do grab this book for a round of feelings.

This collection of voices is an event. There is so much power in its unity and chorus of injustice, it is a solace for survivors of all backgrounds.
Amanda Forrester
We Will Not Be Silenced is an anthology that lets you know you are not alone.
Kimberly Cunningham
Powerful pieces from survivors' hearts straight to the pages. This is a must have in every library, women's centers and beyond. Real stories of truth that cannot be ignored.
