Synopsis

A ground-breaking, eye-opening and inspiring memoir-meets-manifesto by Georgia Harrison, who rocketed to fame after winning a court case against her ex-boyfriend on counts of revenge porn. This won't just be a book, but a whole movement. In 2020, Georgia Harrison's world was ripped apart when her ex-boyfriend shared intimate footage of her online without consent. But this is not a sad story - it's a story about the power of hope, a journey to justice - and a rallying cry for change. In her debut book Taking Back My Power, reality TV star turned activist Georgia shares her harrowing experience of finding herself at the centre of a vicious media storm and her hugely public battle to prosecute her ex. Thanks to her brave campaign, he was found guilty of revenge porn, voyeurism, and two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress. This culminated in a 21-month jail sentence, a ruling that has been widely celebrated as a win for women - and which has cemented Georgia as a feminist icon. In the unfiltered and unflinching Taking Back My Power, Georgia reflects on the impact that porn and revenge porn have on sex, contemporary society and social media, using her own experience to shine a light on others who have been impacted. Through her powerful personal narrative, this important and inspirational book calls attention to the urgent need to address the issue of non-consensual filming and revenge porn that affects so many young girls and women today.
