A powerful source of healing for girls and young women who have experienced sexual abuse, Invisible Girls offers young women hope for recovery and justice in an era when too many girls have suffered alone

The statistics are staggering.

One in four girls will experience sexual abuse by the time she is sixteen, and 48 percent of all rapes involve a young woman under the age of eighteen. It's not surprising then, that in a society where sexual abuse of young women is rampant, many women never share their stories. They remain hidden and invisible.

In her pioneering work with young survivors through the last thirty years, Dr. Patti Feuereisen has helped teen girls and young women to find their voices, begin healing, and become visible.

In this revised second edition, Dr. Patti's gentle guidance and the girls' powerful stories continue to create an encouraging message: Remarkable healing is possible if girls learn to share their stories in their teens and early twenties. With a new introduction, new chapters, and updated resources, this new edition of Invisible Girls has even more to offer girls, young women, and those who care about them.

Reviews:

"If you are a teenage girl, this book may save your life. Invisible Girls will help you see the truth."
--Karrie Higgens, author of Invisible Insurrection

"An excellent book for the adolescent girl and young woman who has been abused."
--Psych Central

"Until now we have not heard the voices of teen girls quite like this. In this work, the author offers us a glimpse into the worlds of teenaged girls and young women who are abuse survivors. These young women tell their stories of incest, date rape, acquaintance rape, and mentor abuse. The stories deserve to be heard. The truth hurts, but it also heals."
--Canadian Women's Health Network

"Invisible Girls is remarkable . . . Myths are debunked and survivors and their allies are guided toward a beautiful path of healing."
--Girls Coalition of Greater Boston
