Making Spaces Safer: A Guide to Giving Harassment the Boot Wherever You Work, Play, and Gather

by Shawna Potter - £8.95  AK Press (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781849353564 | ISBN 10: 1849353565

Shawna Potter, singer for the band War On Women, has tackled sexism and harassment in lyrics and on stage for years. Taking the battle to music venues themselves, she has trained night clubs and community spaces in how to create safer environments for marginalized people.
 
Now she’s turned decades of experience into a clear and concise guide for public spaces of all sorts — from art galleries to bagel shops to concert halls — that want to shut down harassers wherever they show up. The steps she outlines are realistic, practical, and actionable. With the addition of personal stories, case studies, sample policies, and no-nonsense advice like “How to Flirt without Being a Creep,” she shows why safer spaces are important, while making it easier to achieve them.
 
Punk passion, candor, and anger get the job done!
