From the Introduction: “It may seem like I am making a big deal about such a small phrase, but the, ‘Hey Worthless’ exploded in my ears like a trumpet blast. While we could debate the genius of Hitchcock and his cleverly disguised insult, the blasting in my ears created a frozen state in my body. This was one of the ways women had been programmed to think they were worthless, less than, not enough or wrong. This is how their voices were shut down. It began with one slippery, biting word at a time; demeaning, dishonoring, invalidating abuse intermixed with food, shelter, belonging, and ‘love.’ From men, from women, from the media and more.” ~Andrea Hylen
