Executives Turn to Body Language

College Women Can Stop Rape with Their Facial Expressions

Let start off this blog by saying, as you know I am a retired ATF agent and the audacity of this notion that body language can stop women from being rape is absolutely absurd to me but I am always open to another point of view especially when they cite my field of expertise—Body Language.
