  • "If he hits me, then he must love me."
  • "I am a cow and I am a bull. I am a woman and I am a man."
  • "If you don't find an ideal man by your age... it doesn't mean that you like girls. Don't worry, you can find a man! You will not be an old maid."
  • "That was also when these police officers, who were meant to protect the public, became my pimps."
What can be more deep and personal than reading what a woman wrote of her experiences? Cases such as domestic violence, forced prostitution, rape, and more. You won't be able to tear your eyes away as you read their quiet whispers of horror, while trying to understand why this still happens in other cultures today. Having these real women explain to the world what happened to them will help to raise awareness on why we still need to fight and stand up for them.

Much of the world is still stuck within sadistic patriarchal standards that oppresses women. And for a woman to survive in such a culture she must have enormous strength to defend her own or her children's lives from violence and oppression. Read what these brave women wish to confess.

From the Author:

We hope that you, like us, can also see how these true stories from these brave women are vital and important in order to raise an understanding of what others, like them, experience within much of the world today. This, along with raising awareness, will also help us raise funds for an organization in that part of the world that helps women in unfortunate situations, and equally stands for the equality of women.
Perhaps it will help those that had experienced similar in western society cope with it. Or it may help people group together to fight against these issues here and over there... then we will feel as though what we accomplished with this book was a success. When you know the face of the beast it is easier to fight it.
To see women brought down by the culture while shrugging off the domestic violence as just simply a family issue touched us to the very core. Often reading these letters was quite shocking and touched us intimately. We hope that these true and deeply personal stories will also change your lives as well.
So join us by reading My Whispers of Horror and help us raise awareness along with funds for these very important issues.

From the Back Cover:

Women search for happiness no matter where they live. They want to build a life, family, career in order to insure a wholesome future. But in much of the world the patriarchal cultures women are born into simply nip at a woman's potential and brutally guards the slave-like position that women occupy.

Women struggle as they are bought and sold as property. Their inheritance of an unequal and corrupt system that works against them. All while being enforced by domestic violence which women must deal with alone.

These issues, and so much more, are address by the voices of real women in ex-USSR nations. We included anonymous letters that will touch and terrify you on a personal level, while learning what women still have to deal with today.
