On this episode of the en(gender)ed podcast, our guest is Dr. Jessica Taylor, founder and owner of VictimFocus, an organization providing research, consultancy, and thought leadership in forensic psychology, feminism, and mental health. We speak with Jessica today about her book, Why Women Are Blamed for Everything, which covers the psychology of victim-blaming and self blame of women who have been subjected to sexual violence and abuse.

During our conversation, Jessica and I referenced the following resources and topics:
