From the Author
I am so excited and proud of this book! What is so special about College Safety 101:Miss Independent's Guide to Confidence, Empowerment and Staying Safe are all of the experts that contributed to the book...for example in the Sexual Harassment Chapter, Bernice Sandler is one of the pioneers who help create the first Sexual Harassment Laws that ultimately evolved into Title IX, in the Campus Safety Chapter, both Chief Susan Reiseling of Univ. of Wisconsin and Chief Annette Spicuzza of UC Davis give valuable tips on what to do if an Active Shooter is on Campus, Trinka Porata of Project GHB tells you everything you need to know about Date Rape Drugs, just to name a few. My writing style is easy to read, conversational, and hopefully entertaining to the reader!! The ultimate goal of my book is to teach young woman Street Smarts BEFORE they have to learn it the hard way. Caring about your Personal Safety is the greatest gift that you can give yourself. I hope every young woman out there will get a copy and learn to live with Strength, Courage and Common Sense!
Thanks so much, Kathleen Baty aka The Safety Chick
