"As the book title suggests, the message of the book is that marginalized and victimized women can become strong, often already are (but not realized to be) strong, and there are ways that society and other individuals can assist women on the journey to becoming strong." -- Richard Tewksbury, Arizona State University * Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, online *
"The authors analyzed interviews conducted with nearly two hundred homeless women in U.S. cities, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Detroit. Most of the women who suffered a wide range of traumas exhibited signs of resiliency. Where women remain in negative patterns, they may be solutions, rather than perpetuating female homelessness." -- Anne Burke * Feminist Caucus, July 2018 *
