Are you looking for events to commemorate Women’s History Month? Then look no further! I am so happy to welcome back activist and award-winning author Laura Bates. We will discuss her fantastic work with the Everyday Sexism Project and her latest YA novel, No Accident. I had such a wonderful time talking with Laura the last time. I feel this will be another engaging and compelling conversation.
No matter how you try to hide it, the truth will always come out . . .
When a small plane crash ends with a group of seven teens washed up on a deserted island, their first thought is survival. With supplies dwindling and the fear of being stranded forever becoming more of a reality, they quickly discover that being the most popular kid in high school doesn’t help when you’re fighting to stay alive.
And when strange and terrifying accidents start to occur all around them, the group realizes that they are being targeted by someone who was on the plane, and that the island isn’t their only danger. A terrible secret from a party the night before the flight has followed them ashore–and it’s clear that someone is looking for justice. Now survival depends on facing the truth about that party: who was hurt that night, and who let it happen?
LAURA BATES is the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, a crowdsourced collection of stories from women around the world about their experiences with gender inequality.
