I’m sure that you are well aware of the dreadful and violent acts committed against women all over the world. I don’t need to give you statistics; you see it on the news, read it in the papers and onthe internet, and you may even know women who have been physically attacked or abused. But just because it happened to them doesn’t mean that it should happen to you. There are practical ways with which you can defend yourself against people who want to harm you.
1. Be Alert and Confident

Remember these three things: listen, watch, and feel. Don’t use an MP3 player or your phone while walking. These will limit your ability to hear the sounds around you. When you walk, stand tall and look forward. This makes you look like a confident and empowered person. And lastly, listen to you intuition. If you feel that something is wrong, then don’t take chances. Go somewhere with many people or ask a friend to accompany you.
