BE THE CHANGE is an essential handbook for the modern activist, whether your campaign is big or small, local or global, or somewhere in between.
In June 2017, a man took a photo up Gina Martin's skirt at a music festival. The police told her that this was not a sexual offence; the man would not be charged.
The law had let Gina down, and her first reaction was resignation. It's too big, too scary, too complicated for someone like me to challenge this.
But something inside her had snapped. Gina was tired of accepting sexual harassment as a fact of life.
Eighteen months later, she had changed the law and made upskirting a criminal offence.
Now, Gina wants to empower you with the tools and courage to challenge injustice and fight for change, whether it's in your school, workplace or community, or even on a global scale.
In BE THE CHANGE you will learn:
- What activism really is and why it's so important
- How to use the internet to fight for what you believe in
- How to pick the cause you truly care about
- And how to do the hardest thing in activism: get started
