Empowerment Self-Defense in Everyday Feminism
I helped my colleague Lauren Taylor (of Defend Yourself!) with this article:
Women get tons of useless advice about how to “protect” ourselves. Whether or not we follow the advice, we’re still blamed for our own assaults. We all have the right to assert our boundaries, but saying that we can defend ourselves sounds like victim-blaming. So how do we reconcile those two messages? One way is through feminist, empowerment-based self-defense.
