Abstract

Kate Cook is a feminist and a teacher, activist and writer. She has been involved in the struggle against rape since 1990, when she joined Manchester Rape Crisis as a volunteer collective member. Since then she has worked in campaigning groups (Justice for Women, Campaign to End Rape and Truth About Rape Campaign) and has completed a degree and PhD in law, all inspired by that original involvement with rape crisis. Kate is now deeply honoured to be a patron of Manchester Rape Crisis and teaches about the law on rape to students studying law at Manchester Metropolitan University. She is also a member of the group Safety4Sisters (North-west), which she writes about here.
