Following in the footsteps of Rigoberto Menchu, Maria Teresa Tula describes her childhood, marriage, and growing family as well as her political consciousness, activism, imprisonment and torture. The human side of the civil war in El Salvador and decades of repression come to the fore in this woman's tale of extraordinary courage and ordinary labor.

"It warms the soul to realize the heights to which women like Maria Teresa can soar when struggling for a cause they believe in." ----Medea Benjamin, Director, Global Exchange

"Hear My Testimony is a compelling, auto-biographical account of a human rights activist in El Salvador during its worst episodes of political and social violence." ----Women in Libraries
