Ulrika Sjöberg
The rape of Penny and Julia

This is the story of two Swedish girls, of alcohol, sex and drugs. It is a story of abuse and harassment, in a Stockholm that few people know about. Amnesty International has declared Sweden to be the European country with the highest incidence of reported rape and the lowest rate of convictions.
Penny and Julia attend high school, go to parties, confront love. Their days are divided between the family problems of which they are victims and the obsession with self-control, guilt, and bulimia. Events are a domain of thoughts and actions. Social Services provide psychological and economic support, but their true desire was for tenderness, a normal life, and for someone who really cares for them.
