Broken Spirits from Rape Feb 3, 2013
by Ron Townsend
Miss Erdrich explores the problem of rape on reservations. one in five women in America are raped acording to CBS this week. one in three women are raped on resevations according to Erdrich. This book portrays the unresolved feelings of a rape victim whose spirit is broken and the tragic ending involving her son. This book will help Native American women as well as all women who are raped in America to know that there is an answer, not the one that happened in this book.
the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 1993 is now before the US Senate.. I have already called my senator in Missouri in support of the vote this next week in the US Senate. This is Erdrich's magnum opus. Read it. The story will open men's eyes especially.
