Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-Drawing on their research, teaching, consulting, and experience in the field, the authors present some very practical advice. Rape is defined in all its variations, information on the negative portrayal of women in the media is presented, and photographs that show specific self-defense strategies are included. Ways to protect oneself while in a car, on the job, at home, and on the street are targeted. There are also chapters on campus, public-transportation, and public-restroom safety. Students will find the advice beneficial to their self-esteem and peace of mind, and they'll find the safety techniques easy to understand and practice.-Pat Royal, Crossland High School, Camp Springs, MD
