Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back, written and read by Stacey Dooley. 

Put yourself in their shoes. 

In 2007, Stacey Dooley was a 20-something working in fashion retail. She was selected to take part in the BBC series Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts, which saw her live and work alongside Indian factory workers making clothes for the UK high street. This sparked her series of hugely popular investigations, establishing her as one of BBC3's most celebrated presenters. 

Through the course of her documentary making, Stacey has covered a variety of topics, from sex trafficking in Cambodia to Yazidi women fighting back in Syria. At the core of her reporting are incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances - from sex workers in Russia to victims of domestic violence in Honduras. 

In her first audiobook, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back, Stacey draws on her encounters with these brave and wonderful women, using their experiences as a vehicle to explore issues at the centre of female experience. From gender equality and domestic violence to sex trafficking and sexual identity, Stacey weaves these global strands together in an exploration of what it is to be women in the world today.

Amazing!

Considered, inspiring and eye-opening. I’ve long followed Stacey’s work and believe that she’s an amazing inspiration for women, and men. This summary of the many dangerous/ saddening encounters she has come across as a journalist gives a raw, true account to listers - while making it easy to empathise with on a human level - and hopefully opens doors for discussion and change.

Incredible book

Incredible book, taking you deep into the lives of women across the world who are over coming horrific barriers and experiences just to survive. A real eye opener and an important piece of work. The reading of it is compassionately and articulately presented by Stacey Dooley herself. Can't recommend enough.

Outstanding - thought provoking and inspiring.

As a massive fan of Stacey Dooley’s work, I knew I was going to really enjoy this. Stacey’s writing voice is accessible and educational, and the stories told in this book are incredibly eye-opening. I’m now off to rewatch all of her documentaries.
