Description

The Sunday Times Bestseller Put yourself in their shoes. In 2007, Stacey Dooley was a twenty-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 book, 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.

And in 2016, Stacey travelled to Syria and presented the critically acclaimed documentary, Stacey Dooley on The Frontline- Gun Girls and ISIS, also for BBC3. 2017 has seen Stacey explore the dangerous world of child pornography in Japan, investigate the missing indigenous girls of Canada and go undercover in the growing criminal world of Britain's digital drug dealers.
