The Founder of GFB is Erin Weed – a speaker, author, certified self-defense instructor. Her calling to the field of violence prevention and self-defense began in 2001 as a direct response to the murder of her friend, Shannon McNamara, near the campus of Eastern Illinois University. Erin is the author of "Girls Fight Back! The College Girl's Guide to Protecting Herself” and was named 2009 Best Female Performer by Campus Activities Magazine.

Most college shows are performed by our highly trained speakers, based regionally across the USA. The speakers are young college graduates and have a hip and savvy approach to staying safe on campus. To date, our events have been presented on nearly 500 college campuses nationwide. Speakers have received intensive personal safety and self-defense training by Erin.

Girls Fight Back has been featured in media including: New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Marie Claire, Glamour, Ladies Home Journal and CosmoGirl magazine. Televesion features include CNN, Fox News, the CBS Early Show, the John Walsh Show and Weekend Today on NBC.
