Show Notes

On this week’s 51%, we sit down with “defensive living” experts Joy Farrow and Laura Frombach to discuss modern ways women are protecting themselves in the face of gender-based violence. Farrow is a retired deputy sheriff with 28 years of experience in policing and airport safety, while Frombach is a technologist and engineer who escaped a childhood plagued by domestic abuse. In their new book, Street Smart Safety for Women, Farrow and Frombach share tips on everything from how to spot a scammer to how to become “persuasion-proof.”

Guests: Joy Farrow and Laura Frombach, authors of Street Smart Safety for Women: Your Guide to Defensive Living

If you or someone you love has been impacted by domestic violence, help is available. The National Domestic Violence Hotline provides 24/7 support at 1-800-799-7233, and online here.

51% is a national production of WAMC Northeast Public Radio in Albany, New York. Jesse King is the show’s producer and host. Our associate producer is Jody Cowan, and our theme is “Lolita” from the Albany-based artist Girl Blue.
