These diverse voices rise up in a collective roar to break open, expose, and examine the insidiousness of brutality, neglect, a punch, or a put-down. Here is Edward Albee on SaM; Maya Angelou on womena€™s work; Michael Cunningham on self-mutilation; Dave Eggers on a Sudanese abduction; Carol Gilligan on a daughter witnessing her mother being hit; Susan Miller on raising a son as a single mother; and Sharon Olds on a bra. These writings are inspired, funny, angry, heartfelt, tragic, and beautiful. But above all, together they create a true and profound portrait of this issuea€™s effect on every one of us. With information on how to organize an a€œUntil the Violence Stopsa€ event in your community, A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer is a call to the world to demand an end to violence against women. a€œIn the current era, it takes some brain racking to think of anyone else doing anything quite like Ensler.
