Globally, women are 27 times more likely than men to be harassed online. Black women are 84% more likely to face online harassment than white. There has been a 71% rise in online disability abuse and 78% of LGBTQ+ people have experienced hate speech online.

How to Stay Safe Online is an urgent, necessary digital self-care tool from leading activist for online equality Seyi Akiwowo. With a blend of practical advice, Seyi's personal experiences and interviews with Jameela Jamil, Hera Hussain, Laura Bates and Yassmin Abdel-Magied, this book will:

* Provide practical tips on how to confidently navigate online spaces
* Equip you with a range of responses to online abuse and how to effectively report
* Teach you how to set boundaries and use the internet as a force for good
* Empower friends, teachers and parents to help victims
* Help you create your own digital self-care plan

This will be the go-to guide to developing resilience, greater compassion for others and authentic allyship online.
