In Seeing Pink, a group of five middle-class women, angered
by continuous acts of spousal abuse and other forms of
domestic oppression, garb themselves in pink robes and
hoods, and embark upon a campaign of revenge. Safe behind
their pink disguises, they vandalize, they scandalize, they
vent. Their clandestine actions not only free their
spirits, but also ignite the nation's curiosity. But one
night their increasingly audacious behavior gets out of
hand, and they accidentally kill a man. This man is the son
of a United States senator.
Seeing Pink is the story of five human hearts finding the
courage to beat out loud. But it is also a thriller.
Shortly after the women begin their escapades, word of
their actions wildfires across the country, and soon their
cause is adopted by talk-show hosts and Washington
lobbyists. Their small West Virginia town spills over with
pink-clad protestors and television crews, lines are drawn
in the sand, and then—on what the women have decided is
their final night as vigilantes—the gun goes off, and the
senator's son lies dead at their feet.
What started out as a way of striking back at bullies turns
into a frantic race to cover up a murder. However, the
women find that their own souls have grown too big to
contain. They cannot simply keep their heads down and wait
for the danger to pass, but must take their place at the
forefront of a national uprising. Federal agents, secret
tunnels, skinheads, helicopters, mob riots, and
heartstopping sex—these are the elements that drive Seeing
Pink to its harrowing conclusion.
