Book

NOT YOUR
LOLITA

by Dominique Clarke

«As Jo March says… I like good strong words that mean something. This book has them. Not only does she patiently teach you about the importance of women's literature, but with brave, free and intellectually spontaneous words, she shows it to you.»

Antonella Sigala, Jazz-Pop Singer-Songwriter and Activist

«We need characters that feel real, complex and multidimensional. This is how women are and we are tired of being represented with flat, complacent and predictable female characters. Now we need characters like Lo, who in everyday life help you dream big, in a bigger world for everyone.»

Denisse Kohn, NYU Medical Nutrition Specialist and Co-Creator of the Podcast "Mujeres Comiendo"

«An engaging, entertaining book that at the same time puts you in situations that many women must face in their day to day.»

Cristóbal Ruhe, Student.

«Totally addictive. Gilmore girls made feminist, same coffee addiction but deeper conversations. I wish I had read Clarke at 16, everything would be different.»

 

Milagros Mir, General Coordinator Tremendas Foundation and Creator of @simplemetanoia

«It highlights how important it is to read female authors, because of how invisible they are and to have a view of the feminine from the feminine (and not from the masculine as it has been predominantly until now). I was shocked to recognize in my life what the book says:   the times that for presenting a situation in a better way than a man, they have told me and tell me that I am manipulative and calculating.»

 

Roxana González, Computer Engineer FCFM and Director at REDMAD Organization (Network of Women in Senior Management)

Not your Lolita is a novel about how, through culture and literature, repression against women is reinforced. From the fact of being more serious in the classroom because "we mature earlier", and we have to test our intellect, to our adolescence where purity is demanded of us but at the same time we are sexualized. What is the origin of all these beliefs?

The protagonist, Lolita, enters the world of "classic" literature in her adolescence, learning how women were written by men, fictitious beings that reinforced all these constructs in culture. Lolita decides to read women and rebuild what she was educated to be for so many years.

Lolita learns that she was not born with innate guilt, and that she is not anyone's Lolita, she is the author of her own story.
