Book Launch with Lauren Taylor for “Get Empowered” with Katea Stitt
October 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Lauren Taylor will discuss her recently released book, “GET EMPOWERED, A Practical Guide to Thrive, Heal, and Embrace your Confidence in a Sexist World”, co-authored by Nadia Telsey,
Don’t walk alone at night. Don’t leave your drink unattended. Don’t hurt anyone’s feelings.
Most women and nonbinary people are taught these rules, intended to keep us safe from harassment, abuse, and assault, from a young age. While the #MeToo movement has swept the globe and shined a light on the pervasiveness of gender-based violence that led to these “rules,” the fears persist—and for good reason.
While men—who commit almost all gender-based violence—are the ones who should be responsible for changing, those of us who are targeted shouldn’t have to wait for the world to transform and become a better place in order to live safer, fuller, more authentic lives.
Through real-life stories, meaningful questions, and interactive exercises, Get Empowered will teach readers to:
Understand why gendered violence exists and how it shows up
Take up space
Say what they want
Let go of self-blame
Heal from past traumas
Whether you’re looking for ways to stand up for yourself, you’re a survivor focused on healing, or you’re committed to being an ally, this book will give you the tools you need to thrive.
