TalkSafe Series 2 Episode 7: Karen Whybro

The TalkSafe Podcast

12-08-2022 • 41 mins

Emma had the pleasure of welcoming Karen Whybro in the studio today, a feminist and equality activist who is working round the clock to help end the epidemic of violence against women and girls that we’re facing in todays society.

Karen describes all of the amazing projects she’s currently working on, including, a women's safety charter within her local council, implementing change within organisations and door staff who may need additional training, as well as undertaking Research with the University of Essex. This is seeing her deep dive into where exactly women feel unsafe, and more importantly how they adapt their behaviour to how safe or unsafe they feel.

She describes how invaluable these experiences are, as they enable her to have a better understanding of what needs to change within her local community and beyond. Emma admires Karen's unwavering call to action especially as Karen also has a daughter and a full time job as a bridal shop owner, so as you can tell she is a real life wonder woman!
