"...HOLY, the book is built on the strength of that other holy trinity-the mother, the daughter, and the others who believe in women. Am I worried? Sad? Yes--and very, very angry. The fundamental disrespect for women's rights should be an affront to everyone. It doesn't matter when a woman chooses to bear life, or whether she does at all. It matters what she feels safe and supported in her decision. It matters that the system shamefully ignores the complexity of women's health care. That it allows for rape, incest, kidnapping, and domestic violence --- that many cannot make a living because society undervalues their contributions. There has to be another way.

As I see it, my mission is to cut out the noise and listen to women. Believers. Non-believers. Young. Old. Cis. Trans. Living Dead. That's what pulls me like a moth to the light."
Donna Ferrato, preface from the book, HOLY, published by powerHouse Books.
