If writing about systematic sexual harassment and abuse can be emotionally exhausting, then having to narrate those accounts cannot be any easier. Therefore, Jean Ann Douglass's somber tone makes perfect sense. Yeung explores how women in vulnerable employment situations routinely encounter sexual harassment and violence. Yeung interviews women in industries such as office cleaning, domestic work, and agriculture, illustrating how they must navigate demanding work and unwanted advances, often with little recourse. Douglass's steady narration avoids strong emphasis, which helps listeners sit with the rawness of the experiences shared. While Yeung's identification of organizations looking to help is encouraging, Douglass's narration will stay with listeners long after they finish the audiobook.
