"The most comrpehensive study of rape ever offered to the public...It forces readers to take a fresh look at their own attitudes toward this devastating crime."
NEWSWEEK
As powerful and timely now as when it was first published, AGAINST OUR WILL stands as a unique document of the history of politics, the sociology of rape and the inherent and ingrained inequality of men and women under the law. In lucid, persuasive prose, Brownmiller has created a definitive, devastating work of lasting social importance.

User Review  - Anne - Goodreads

Although dated, this is seminal feminist work I read for a class this semester. It was interesting to read the book that spawned talks on "rape culture" and contributed to the feminist movement of the 80's. Read full review
