With no prior political experience or legal training, Gina successfully campaigned to make upskirting a criminal offence. The legislation passed its final stage in the House of Lords on 15th January and came into effect on 12th April 2019: taking non-consensual photographs under anyone's clothes is now illegal in England and Wales.
Be the Change is a comprehensive toolkit for the modern activist to equip us to fight for change -big or small, local or global. It will include practical advice to help the reader to challenge injustice in many forms: whether lending a voice to a cause or taking on a complex issue on a massive scale.
This June, Gina will be chatting with individuals who are already doing just that; looking at what action they are taking to effect change in their communities and beyond, and widening the conversation to help and inspire others to do likewise.
We look forward to seeing you there, and to coming together to be the change we want to see in the world.
