Woman Talking

For years, the women of the Mennonite settlement, Molotschna, had been violated at night by demons punishing them for their sins. After discovering that they had actually been drugged and raped by men from their own colony, the women decide to meet in secret to discuss plans for the future while the men are away in the city for trial. Based on true events, Women Talking features a colorful cast of women contemplating their own basic rights. Told in the longing, elegant voice of the male minutes-taker (the women are illiterate), this novel is a fierce decree against patriarchal violence — a triumph. I was deeply moved.
