From 2014-17, Taylor Yocom photographed women and femme-identifying people on college campuses across the United States holding what they use to protect themselves from sexual assault on walks at night. From pepper spray and rape whistles to keys and umbrellas, these objects shed light on the gendered conditioning to be "on guard" in response to sexual assault and harassment in everyday life. The photographs are accompanied by texts by arts writer & collaborator KT Hawbaker and sociologist Dr. Fiona Vera-Gray, author of "The Right Amount of Panic: How Women Trade Freedom for Safety."
