Jacky Trevane's first book Fatwa elicited a massive response from women who felt themselves to be marginalised. Now in Invisible Women she tells the powerful stories of some of these women who have lost their identities and are forced to make the tough choice of remaining invisible to survive, or to take on the fight to be who they really are.
Many of the women who contacted Jacky after the publication of Fatwa identified with her horrific story of abuse and violent harassment. Jacky has interviewed some of these women, from different races and religions, whose suffering has remained invisible within society. From the woman who was neglected and abused by her whole family as a child to a teenage girl fighting against a forced arranged marriage, these stories are diverse and moving and sometimes without a happy ending. Invisible Women is a reminder that women are still vulnerable to abuse and control but it also shows the remarkable inner resources by which they can survive. A shocking but inspirational book.
