Created by JCLEmmaF | 28 items
On October 15th, actress Alyssa Milano tweeted a note that read "Suggested by a friend: If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote "Me too" as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem. If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write #MeToo." Social media was immediately flooded with the hashtag, conveying the gravity of the problem. Included in this list are YA books that deal with sexual assault. These books provide perspective and solidarity. In an effort to maintain realistic, diverse integrity, included genres, characters, and forms include realism, comics, poc, lgbtq+, essay, history, poetry, and more. In addition, due to the complex subject, books include a range of point of view, from survivor, bystanders, and friends.
