"A powerful work filled with disbelief, outrage, and documentation...sexual bondage shackles women as much today as it has for centures." --Los Angeles Times "Exposes the dark side of sexuality and dares to ask the crucial question, 'why do men do these things to women?'...the issues it raises deserve nationwide attention." --Susan Brownmiller "Kathy Barry has written a courageous, crusading book that should be read everywhere, from the local District Attorney's office to the United Nations." --Gloria Steinem "This powerful and compassionate book should be read by anyone concerned with social values, with sexuality, with psychology -- female and male." --Adrienne Rich
