Sarah Deer's new book to be published in October

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Sarah Deer’s new book, “The Beginning and End of Rape: Confronting Sexual Violence in Native America,” collects and expands on the writings in which she has advocated for cultural and legal reforms to protect Native women from endemic sexual violence and abuse.

Grounded in historical, cultural, and legal realities, Native and non-Native alike, these essays point to the possibility of actual and positive change in a world where Native women are systematically undervalued, left unprotected, and hurt—and they provide specific, practical recommendations and plans of action for making the world safer for all.

“The Beginning and End of Rape” will be released by University of Minnesota Press in October.

Deer is also coauthor of three textbooks on tribal law and coeditor of “Sharing Our Stories of Survival: Native Women Surviving Violence.”
