"[An] insightful manual . . . offers men tools to best support female rape victims in their lives. McEvoy defines basic vocabulary and elucidates how victims can experience a variety of complicated emotions, from anger or shame to feelings of isolation . . . McEvoy handles his topic with sensitivity and is careful not to overstate the man's role in the healing process--it's vital for women to maintain total agency throughout--while still making clear that they can play an important support role. This is an ideal road map for male partners or friends who want to help, but don't know where to start."
