My Journey from DES Advocate to Author

by Judith Barrow, Hormones Matter, June 20th 2013

My Journey from DES Advocate to Author
Judith Barrow became an advocate for DES education, research and services

My name is Judith Barrow and I am an author. I have been connected with DES Action UK and USA since I heard a programme about Stilboestrol (Diethylstilbestrol in the USA) (DES) on the radio many years ago. I learned several years ago that a relative was affected by this drug.

The damage DES causes is very personal and as private person, she didn’t want anyone to know that she had been exposed to DES. So I became her front person. I did the research for her. I contacted the DES organizations on her behalf. What I found changed my life and led me to write a book. Here is my story. ”

How to use Self-Publishing to promote a Charity/Cause

Introducing Judith Barrow

How to use Self-Publishing to promote a Charity/Cause
Judith Barrow self-published Silent Trauma

Find out why Judith Barrow, author of Silent Trauma, a wonderful book written to draw attention about the DES drug tragedy, self-published her novel.

I did approach my own publishers and four others. The reasons for the rejections were twofold. One was that “they wouldn’t be able to sell ‘issue–led’ novels”. And two, I was told, was the worry of being sued by the drug companies.

The Story of Silent Trauma is fiction – the facts are real…

Silent Trauma

Judith Barrow’s story is fiction, but the facts are real…

Silent Trauma by Judith Barrow on FlickrWhen Meg Matthews gives a radio interview about the devastating effects a drug has had on her life she has no idea that there will be anyone else who has suffered in a similar way. But soon she is contacted by three other women who share the same terrible secret: Rachel, a woman struggling with a failing marriage, Jackie, with a series of unsuccessful gay relationships behind her and Avril, a recluse. Each one has their own story. Each one believed that they were alone. In any other circumstances their lives would never have crossed but now they are drawn together in friendship because of the terrible consequences of a drug prescribed to pregnant women for over forty years during the middle of the twentieth century. Used ostensibly to supposedly prevent miscarriages Stilboestrol (Diethylstilbestrol DES) caused unforeseen internal damage to the unborn daughters of these women that was not discovered for years. Alone, the four women were powerless; together they are a force to be reckoned with. Determined to bring publicity to the destruction caused by the drug they hit on an unusual and innovative idea to bring it to the public’s attention.
