Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture gol. gan/ed. by Roxane Gay
Yn yr antholeg hon, mae Roxane Gay wedi casglu darnau gwreiddiol a hanesyddol sy’n mynd i’r afael â’r hyn y mae’n ei olygu i fyw mewn byd lle mae’n rhaid i fenywod fesur yr aflonyddwch, trais ac ymddygiad ymosodol y maent yn eu hwynebu, a lle mae goroeswyr yn cael eu hanwybyddu am siarad allan.
In this valuable and timely anthology, cultural critic and bestselling author Roxane Gay collects original and previously published pieces that address what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence and aggression they face, and where sexual-abuse survivors are ‘routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied’ for speaking out.
Highlighting the stories of well-known actors, writers and experts, as well as new voices being published for the first time, Not That Bad covers a wide range of topics and experiences, from an exploration of the rape epidemic embedded in the refugee crisis to first-person accounts of child molestation and street harassment.
Often deeply personal and always unflinchingly honest, this provocative collection both reflects the world we live in and offers a call to arms insisting that ‘not that bad’ must no longer be good enough.
