On the Rag: We made our own safety video for women (WATCH)


In the latest episode of On The Rag, based on the podcast of the same name, watch as Alex Casey, Michèle A’Court and Leonie Hayden get real about women and safety.

Fasten your seatbelts and hold onto your tits, the seventh episode of On the Rag is all about safety. What did we learn about safety when we were growing up as young women? What key pointers should everyone know about workplace harassment? And who the hell are the men who shout at women from cars? We also enjoy a safety demonstration from Vivian Chandra from the women’s self defence network, who teaches us to turn fear into anger and ballet moves into lethal blows.

Excuse me, what colour is this? 

Attention drivers and other people who have from time to time looked at traffic lights: this is a scandal.

Can crypto be used for good?

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are raising money for charity, but doubts remain about how well the model can work.
