REVIEWS
"Eloquently debunks the myth that women should shoulder the responsibility for preventing the violence and harassment we face in the public spaces." Frances O'Grady, TUC "In a world where women face an epidemic of harassment, violence and abuse, Vera-Gray shatters the illusion that the victim is to blame for her own assault. Powerful, moving and insightful" Laura Bates, author of Everyday sexism "By re-interpreting women's daily safety strategies as successful forms of resistance, this book presents fresh ideas for sexual violence prevention." Holly Kearl, author of Stop Street Harassment: Making Public Places Safe and Welcoming for Women "Finally a book which places sexual harassment at the centre of women's everyday safety work, required reading for all who care about violence against women and who want to ensure that time is really up." Liz Kelly, London Met University
