After killing other characters, a character experiences anxiety. I wouldn’t call it an attack but the entirety of the book includes some form of anxiety. It’s a good book though and did not bother me in the slightest

throughout the book theres vague mentions of sex, or what men are "supposed" to do to women, and women are basically seen as sex objects and nothing else to the men of prentisstown.

Yes, but it is not graphic, and it happened before the events of the book began, so we do not see it.
