Today and for the rest of the month, Sex in Teen Lit II will shift it's focus from sex in YA in general, and look at sex crimes and crimes of a sexual nature.
In this part of the month, the books featured will cover:
- Rape and rape culture:
- From the victim's perspective
- From the perspective of someone who knows both those accused and the victim
- From the perspective of someone who has been falsely accused of rape
- Revenge porn
Things fell through a little bit for me, and I haven't got as much for this part of the event as I hoped, but I think this is the most important part of the event. A light really needs to be shined on these topics, and, as cheesy as it might sound, I'm proud of the authors who are dealing with such tough subjects, and showing us the truth of these situations - making us, in some cases, look at ourselves, how we treat others, and to question out thoughts and behaviour. It's just brilliant, and I'm really looking forward to you all reading my posts for this part of the event, and the conversations we'll have.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the event!
