A courageous, moving, and powerful memoir from a renowned feminist activist, Heroes in My Head is the incredible untold story of Judy Rebick's struggle with depression and Dissociative Identity Disorder. In this riveting memoir, renowned feminist Judy Rebick tells the story of the eleven personalities she developed in order to help her cope with, and survive, childhood sexual abuse.

In Heroes in My Head, Rebick chronicles her struggle with depression in the 1980s, when she became a high-profile spokesperson for the pro-choice movement during the fight to legalize abortion.

It was in the 1990s, when she took on her biggest challenge as a public figure by becoming president of a major women's rights association, that her memories began to surface and became too persistent to ignore. Rebick reveals her moment of discovery: meeting the eleven personalities; uncovering her repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse; and then communicating with each personality in therapy and on the page in a journal - all of this while she is leading high-profile national struggles. Heroes in My Head is a fascinating, heartbreaking, but ultimately empowering story.

With courage and honesty, Rebick lays bare the public and private battles that have shaped her life.
