'Hold Your Story is a vital, timely, and welcome addition to the literature on sexual violence in India. As the first book to focus exclusively on media coverage of rape - including different forms of such violence - it is an invaluable resource for journalists, media houses, journalism schools and media critics & scholars. It is all the more unique because it examines various aspects of reportage across the country, in different types of media and several languages.' -Ammu Joseph, Journalist and Author 'A much-needed addition to the almost inexistent literature on how the media covers sexual violence. Through lively essays and searching interviews, this extremely readable compilation reports, analyses, and comments on the inadequacy, ignorance and bias that mark rape reporting in India.' -Professor Vaiju Naravane, Ashoka University
