Local Writer Pens Book About Rape

Yonkers resident, Jessica Jenkins, has written an autobiography. Her book details repetitive sexual abuse she experienced beginning from age four and continuing into her late teens. 

But beyond the autobiographical format lies a cautionary tale  She advises victims to not remain silent. Their power is in the spoken word. That word is a combination of alerting authorities and expressing the trauma in writing. 

She was recently interviewed by local news service, Yonkers Voice Video. In the video, she discusses the abuse, men who are wrongfully accused, and how to move forward. Click here for the interview. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qqc1D_oGg8
