75% of people do not report sexual violence.
First, let that sink in. Second, ask the obvious: Why?
The answer is complex, and in Unreported, author Kaley Roberts explores it from every angle.
This book contains the true stories of those who experienced sexual violence and didn't report, in-depth research on those who did report and didn't get the outcome they deserved, and interviews with experts. Unreported is a work of persuasive nonfiction, a scientific study, and a memoir. It is an appeal to come together and discuss the unreported majority and, through strong prose, it determines a starting point for change in a system that desperately needs it.
Roberts takes readers with her as she uncovers why our current sexual violence response system isn't working. She highlights how, instead of reporting, people seek out their own justice in the form of regained control, healing, and community.
Unreported is for anyone who sees the power in shared stories-the power to heal, the power to transform, the power to build a better way forward.
