Description

The definitive account of black female sexuality from childhood, aolescence and adulthood Long overlooked in mainstream studies, black women have unique concerns and issues. Their life experiences differ markedly based on the dangerous degree to which society-both black and white-tends to devalue their lives. In Stolen Women, Wyatt provides a forum in which black women for the first time tell their stories in their own words. They candidly describe how they learned about sex, what roles they chose to play, and what roles they were forced to play. They reveal decisions they made, and the feelings they had about the whole range of their experiences-from satisfaction to abuse. Wyatt conducted the landmark survey of black female sexuality, funded by the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH). The initial results of this landmark study were reported across the country. In Stolen Women, Wyatt presents the first full disclosure of her findings and insight. Stolen Women draws on both this statistical data as well as the compelling stories of real women. It reveals the poisonous role of historical stereotypes in contemporary relationships and images. And it offers compassionate strategies for confronting and overcoming these myths and finding greater sexual health and well-being. GAIL ELIZABETH WYATT, PhD, (Beverly Hills, California) is the nation's leading expert on black female sexuality. A professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral science at UCLA, she has appeared on countless national and local television and radio shows, including Donahue, Sonya Live, CNN, and Black Entertainment Television and she has been featured in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Essence, and Emerge. "Sets the path for our healing and our future survival. This is a book that should be read by anyone who knows or cares about African American women."-Gloria Johnson Powell, M.D., Harvard University. "A long-awaited look at the stereotypes and sexual myths that surround African American women."-The Chicago Tribune. Adapted from Gail Wyatt's landmark survey of black female sexuality, Stolen Women blends rich data and the voices of women to reveal the poisonous role of historical stereotypes in contemporary relationships and images. It also offers compassionate strategies for confronting and overcoming these myths and finding greater sexual health and well-being.
