PRECIOUS: New film based on the novel Push by Sapphire

Come to Revolution Books and buy your copy of Push.
Precious is an unflinching and deep look, through one girl's life, at how girls and women all over this globe are degraded, demeaned, and brutalized in a thousand ways-- beaten and raped in huge numbers, treated as objects of sexual gratification and breeders of children instead of full human beings. How human potential gets crushed and beaten down.
