About Shelby Knox:
Shelby Knox, star of the award-winning documentary “The Education of Shelby Knox,” is a well-known progressive activist who fought for comprehensive sex education at her own school and is now working to make a difference at other schools and communities across the US with her forward-thinking views on women’s issues. In Knox’s recent post on The HuffingtonPost.com, she reminds young women about the potential pitfalls during their college years, pointing out that it’s always better to be prepared in the face of certain dilemmas. In her Smart Girl’s Guide, she gives concrete suggestions and ways that young women can prevent pitfalls. Her goal is to remind young women that they need to be savvy and have a plan.

Knox studied government at the University of Texas in Austin, and traveled to speak at high schools, colleges, and community events about comprehensive sex education and youth activism. After graduating in 2007, she moved to New York to work as a freelance writer and consultant to organizations working on young women’s issues.  She continues her work as a sexual health educator in partnership with colleges around the country.
