ABOUT RACHEL LOUISE SNYDER
Rachel Louise Snyder is an American journalist, writer, and professor. She is the author of Fugitive Denim: A Moving Story of People and Pants in the Borderless World of Global Trade, the novels What We’ve Lost is Nothing, No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us and most recently published, a memoir Women We Buried, Women We Burned.
No Visible Bruises is a careful investigation of the true scope of domestic violence. This deeply-reported book reveals how the roots of America’s most pressing social crises—from mass shootings to mass incarceration, to housing insecurity, to #MeToo —are grounded in abuse happening behind closed doors. Through the stories of victims, perpetrators, law enforcement, and reform movements from across the country, Snyder explores private violence, its far-reaching consequences for society, and what it will take to truly address it. No Visible Bruises was awarded the 2018 Lukas Work-in-Progress Award, the 2020 Book Tube Prize, the 2020 New York Public Library’s Bernstein Award for Excellence in Journalism, and the Sidney Hillman Book Award for social justice. Over the past two decades, Snyder has traveled to sixty countries, covering stories of human rights, gender-based violence, natural disasters, displacement, and war. She currently lives in DC and has a joint appointment as a professor in journalism and literature at American University.
Rachel Coalition provides a variety of services to assist victims of domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and individuals living in high conflict relationships.
We improve the lives of those most affected by abuse – the victims, their children, their families. Our domestic violence professionals provide guidance, support, and safe alternatives through counseling and legal services.
Domestic violence does not discriminate. It touches everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, culture, religion, socioeconomic status, or education. Domestic violence affects us all.
