In Her Shoes – Women Who Resist
Description: 
Stories of women successfully resisting in incidents of harassment, intimidation and assault are hard to find in the media, contributing to the image of women as helpless. Through her book, Her Wits About Her, Denise Caignon realised that women were as hungry for tales of success as she was. In this empowering session we will read powerful and positive stories from Caignon’s book and zines from out collection to explore the various strategies women have used to defend themselves against harassment.
