In her debut novel, the sci-fi/dystopic VOX, Christina Dalcher sets the story in an America where half the population has been silenced. On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed to speak more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial—this can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her.
This is just the beginning. Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard.
But this is not the end. For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.
