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.
