Her book, What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape, was published by Myriad in October 2018.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape is a heart-wrenching, honest portrayal of what it means to be a survivor of gender-based violence….A must-read for anyone who believes in the fundamental, equal rights of women.” Angana Narula, cofounder of The JFA Human Rights Journal
