          Sinopsis
          While there are books out there about sexual harassment, and even books about ending it, they tend to be more general—about ending a “culture” of harassment, fighting “attitudes.” Making Spaces Safer is a far more practical book, a how-to that approaches the issue from multiple angles. It’s primarily about what we have to do to, quite literally, create actual public spaces where harassment cannot take root or thrive, but it tackles other related themes—such as how to flirt, the importance of self-care—with equal no-nonsense directness.The #metoo movement is still a cultural force and this book speaks to the people who make it up, both firebrands and sympathizers, but who might be unclear about what we can actually DO to fight back.Shawna is a fascinating personality (and feature-story hook) in her own right. She has been a touring musician for the last twenty years and fronts a fierce, hardcore punk band. She is already always travelling the country and will be a forceful and charismatic promoter of her book.Shawna has made a name for herself as a feminist spokesperson for women in rock. She caused a stir when calling out the sexism she and her band, War On Women, experienced on the popular Van's Warped Tour. She was also featured in a New York Times roundtable last September ("Rock’s Not Dead, It’s Ruled by Women: The Round-Table Conversation," September 1, 2017. link: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/01/arts/music/rock-bands-women.html)
