Notable works include Hunger, Dr. Gay’s autobiography focused on her relationship with her body and experience as a survivor of sexual violence; Bad Feminist, a collection of essays widely considered the quintessential exploration of modern feminism; and Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, a searing anthology on the realities of rape culture.
