April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a good time to talk with the editor of a new book being handed out for free to Native women around the country called What To Do When You’re Raped: An ABC Handbook For Native Girls

Charon Esetoyer is the director of the Native American Women’s Health Education Resource Center and a member of the Comanche tribe of Oklahoma. She explained to me why she decided there was a need for a book with straight talk to Native girls and women about rape. She started our interview with a reading from the handbook.
