Here are Woods's personal stories of 100 times she suffered or was witness to a sexually charged experience--from gender-based discrimination in work places, to unsolicited groping from strangers in public, to sexual assault--beginning from the time she was five years old to the present. Laid out in direct and unflinching vignettes, building one after another, the stories are powerful proof that sexual violence and discrimination are never just one-time occurrences, but part of a constant battle women face every day. In these extraordinary pages, sexual violence and sexist discrimination happen to women regardless of their age, in multiple spheres of society, in rural, and urban areas alike, in the U.S. and abroad, from the time they are very young or come out as women. Demonstrating how often women (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, queer, and transgender alike) are conditioned to endure sexism and harassment, and how men are allowed to feel entitled to women's spaces and bodies, 100 Times is powerful in its blunt and straightforward recitation"--
