Without any legal or political experience, I changed the law and made upskirting illegal in 18 months. But this book is not about changing the law. It's not about me. This is yours. It's your handbook, your road map and your toolkit for pushing for change at absolutely any level.
From using social media to gain support and to getting pro bono legal support, to regaining your confidence after a perceived 'failure' (hint: there is no such thing), I wrote this book to make sure you believe in your voice, feel ready to put yourself out there and know how to start making things happen. Because my god, if I can do it, so can you.
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. If you want to challenge injustice in your school, workplace or community; if you want to lend your voice - and more - to a charitable cause close to your heart; or if you are inspired to take on a complex issue on a massive scale, Gina Martin's practical and empowering advice will give you the tools you need to ensure your voice is heard, your actions are noticed and your demands are met.
"Gina Martin’s powerful campaigning and vital activism changed the law, making our country safer for women and girls. This book tells us how she did it - and how you can too." (Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London)
"Gina Martin is a sensation. A one-woman whirlwind whose campaigning skills and passion for justice achieved vital legal change which the staid political establishment would otherwise have left unremedied. My admiration for her knows no bounds." (The Secret Barrister)
