Women Unsilenced book cover

Jeanne Sarson and Linda MacDonald spent twenty-eight years developing ways of offering care and healing to women who, as children and or as adults, survived being tortured, trafficked, and who suffered other forms of sexualized exploitation inflicted by their parent(s), a guardian, or a spouse. When asked how two women — two nurses — who live in a little Canadian Nova Scotia town managed to achieve what they have. Their answer is simple: “We cared!”
