Reviews

"A graphic manifesto for female empowerment and a punch to the gut of predatory males ... A powerfully disturbing graphic narrative from an author with a lot to say and plenty of creative chops to say it provocatively." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"In Una s simple, spare text and artwork, we get a story about learning how to take ownership over your memories, however painful they might be, and how to gain power by putting brutality into a larger social context and calmly calling your fellow travelers to arms." Vulture.com
"A feminist call to arms ... A graphic memoir on sexual violence against women that everyone should read." Bustle.com
"Among the most powerful books published on misogyny, sexual assault and survival in recent years ... Becoming Unbecoming reads with a visceral, gut-wrenching power that cannot be ignored." Popmatters.com"
"The first line of dialogue is written on a cloud: 'I am Una.' That simple declaration begins a searing indictment of sexual violence ... As a preteen, Una suffered not only sexual abuse but also blistering shame, which made her believe she was damaged. But Una survived, and her book is a roar on behalf of women all over the world." --Oprah.com ("Best Memoir of the Year")

"Una's personal experience is less the center of this story than the springboard for an extended examination of what she calls 'the four horsemen of gender violence -- shame, isolation, disbelief, ridicule.'" --New York Times
