Silence Is Not An Option

Silence Is Not An Option

Silence Is Not An Option is the true story of Argentina Parra's decades-long fights for the safety and security of herself and her children through decades of domestic abuse, mental health obstacles, and legal threats.

Against relentless barriers, she struggles for stability while she immigrates to a new country, learns a new language, starts a business, and pursues her education while raising a family—despite the efforts of men who want to take it all away from her.


Silence Is Not An Option has been named a #1 New Release on Amazon in the Hispanic & Latino Biographies and the Dysfunctional Relationships categories. Check it out now to find out why Argentina Parra is an example of empowerment for women everywhere.
