"Reading these stories together is like hearing a thousand feet stomping in unison or looking at the sea or the earth from far enough away to see its curve. This is a human problem that can neither be denied nor represented through a single story. I feel horrified, sad, tender, and proud, and most of all I want us to do better."
-- "Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do and illustrator of A Different Pond"
"This landmark collection, beautifully produced, shines a light on a relentless, unwelcome aspect of women's lives."--Hillary Chute "The New York Times Book Review"
"These creators don't just draw power from the force of the community of fellow artists speaking out, together, in this excellent and powerful volume--they impart it to the reader, who may either be emboldened to tell their own stories or to listen to those who have too often been silenced."--Hillary Chute "Publishers Weekly"
"Comics are a uniquely visceral method means of administering truth, and this big, wide-ranging collection delivers it in spades. Painful subject matter aside, this is a strong, varied anthology, smartly curated, and boasting a truly impressive talent roster..."--Hillary Chute "The Comics Journal"
