April is recognized as National Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In an effort to educate our community, Bookmans is partnering with Karen Moe, author of Victim: a Feminist Manifesto from a Fierce Survivor, to tell her traumatic, yet triumphant story. Join us on April 13th at Bookmans East as Karen reads excerpts from her book and opens up the floor for discussion. We have also invited Emerge Center Against Domestic Abuse to educate our community on local resources and each Bookmans in Tucson will have display filled with books centered around sexual assault awareness and brochures from local organizations like the Southern Arizona Aids Foundation’s Sexual Assault Awareness Committee.
About the Book
“In Victim: A Feminist Manifesto from a Fierce Survivor, Moe writes her personal experiences in the violent, misogynist world of men that women know all too well. This book embodies and forces us to look at the truth of the reality of male violence that women negotiate every day in patriarchy; and yet, it is also a story of triumph for women individually and collectively because we face that fear daily, and we are still here.” -Trisha Bapti, Journalist and Founder of EVE (Exploited Voices Now Educating).
You can purchase a signed copy directly from Karen Moe on April 13th, or shop our Sexual Assault Awareness Month display in-store all month long.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month — in Tucson, it’s TucSAAM! In an effort to inform the public and support survivors of sexual violence, local victim service agencies, advocacy groups, law enforcement agencies and legal rights organizations have come together to promote TucSAAM across Southern Arizona. Educational events, media outreach and digital campaigns are scheduled throughout the month. The theme for 2022 is “The Truth About Teal” – we’re busting myths and spreading the truth to support survivors!
Each year, nearly 6,000 survivors of domestic violence in Southern Arizona find support through Emerge. Emerge offers emergency shelter, community-based services, community education, a 24/7 crisis hotline and a housing stability program as part of their mission to provide the opportunity to create, sustain and celebrate a life free from abuse.
