Above is a video done by bestselling author, David Meerman Scott, about his new book, World Wide Rave. David interviewed me for his book, about some of the fun things we’ve done using cell phones during GFB seminars to promote self-defense to young women. So what IS a world wide rave, exactly? From the book’s website: “A World Wide Rave is when people around the world are talking about you, your company, and your products. Whether you’re located in San Francisco, Dubai, or Reykjavík, it’s when global communities eagerly link to your stuff on the Web. It’s when online buzz drives buyers to your virtual doorstep. And it’s when tons of fans visit your Web site and your blog because they genuinely want to be there.”
We strive to create a global rave such as this with Girls Fight Back, by making our work to end violence against women accessible on the web. We have some big plans in the coming year for sprucing up the GFB website with a ton of personal safety and self-defense info that can be accessed by anyone, anywhere in the world, for free. We’re hoping this will continue the buzz that women are worth fighting for…and it’s time for each of us to have the skills to do so.
A big thanks to David for believing in our mission, and we wish him the best of luck with the release of his book! You can buy it here. Watch the video above to see a pretty hilarious cameo, by yours truly. You can’t miss it.
