This book did give me some insight to chew on, but not very much. Hearing the stories was kind of I interesting, but most of the book seemed like common sense to me, not entirely illuminating. It also got pretty repetitive at the end.

This was an interesting read but at times did not seem to reflect a global population of women. (Spoiler alert)- Chapters 7 and 8 appear to have more unity as far as application and this is not to say previous sections were any less informative. Over all not a bad read and the author includes several resources for readers interested in additional information.

Emotionally difficult...but on spot

Very difficult emotionally to read, it brought home reality I have never fully recognised. I had to read it, and put it down several times through tears. It was not until my father died that I felt the freedom to be who and what I am. Must read for anyone who has gone through this

The most highlighted ebook I have in my possession. Maybe a more detailed review in future, too difficult now.

Dipped in and out, and what I did read was very good - and validating of my own experience, just wasn't in the right space to digest it all at the time, and prob too sensitive to go back to...
