“This book is all about her – the empowered female who uncovers the psychological and physical strengths within herself, nurturing them to stay confident, bold and authentic, taking charge, and passionately safeguarding her values and her personal safety.” So Joanna Ziobronowicz, a martial arts World Wide Champion, sets out in her introduction to She Fights Back, a toolkit that invites women to embark on “an empowering journey of discovering how caution and preventative measures are crucial in avoiding conflict, and how they can be used as a first line of defence.”

And all this is framed in the context of the World Health Organisation statistic that one in three women will experience violence during their lifetime. As the author remarks, “a disturbing statistic, but one that can be changed.” Of course, it shouldn’t fall to women to take responsibility for shifting a change in misogynist coercion, harassment and violence perpetuated by men, but this book offers women a particular set of tools for shirking the patriarchal “good girl” mantle, unleashing their inner “warrior woman”, and deflecting and dealing with predatory behaviour and violence through situational awareness and physical techniques.

With examples from dozens of women and the author’s life experiences, including her time in the security sector, She Fights Back also covers the legal landscape of self-defence, self-defence techniques, and how to heal from trauma. Packed with practical exercises, with space to make observations and set goals, She Fights Back is rounded off with a safety checklist and provides plenty of food for thought when it comes to how women might protect themselves.
