Jessica Valenti: Sex Object

Valenti’s moving memoir, which chronicles her experiences of being groped, raped, exposed to, and jerked on, helps me understand better about sexism that women have to deal with everyday. As she confessed, “Doing the right thing has never come easy to me. I cheated on almost all of my boyfriends with regularity and without remorse,” Valenti’s goal is to be honest rather than motivational.
