Popular Self Defense Items for Women

Share

One of the most overlooked self defense items for women is this PAL keychain alarm with light. It is one of the most popular personal alarms, a.k.a. panic alarms, for women. It combines the two best deterrents against an attack: 130 dB ear piercing alarm and a bright flashing light. You can activate the alarm in two ways; first when the pin attached to the keychain is pulled, and second by pressing the alarm button on the top of the unit.

PAL 130
Personal alarms are effective self-defense items for women because they can alert people in your area that you may be in trouble and/or scare a potential assailant away. This particular panic alarm uses two AAA batteries that come with the unit and it is so small that it attaches to your keys easily.

Another inexpensive self-defense items for women is this Pepper Shot 10% concentration of oleoresin capsicum rated at 2 million Scoville heat units keychain pepper spray. It contains 10 half-second shots up to 10 feet away and represents one of the best values in self-defense items for women. It has a thumb lock safety actuator to prevent accidental discharge and includes a UV marking dye for assailant identification.

First one is this Samstun Cell Stun Gun that is 6,000,000 volts and is only 4 ½ inches tall and a half inch thick. It comes in black or pink. It weighs only 8 ounces. It is manufactured with a built-in LED flashlight and comes with the deluxe holster with clip for easy carrying. It is fully rechargeable so no batteries are needed.

Women Joggers At Risk

Share

This is a story from Australia where a sexual predator has been assaulting Women Joggers.

The perpetrator attacks from behind in the dark and has worn a hood in each incident.

“Officers are have increased patrols in the Newport and Yarraville areas after three women were grabbed from behind and indecently assaulted while jogging between 6am and 8am over the past two weeks.

All three were wearing headphones at the time and are aged between 20 and 30, police say.

Detective Sergeant Kerr said in each case the woman’s scream had scared the attacker off.

Police believe there may be other people out there who have been approached by this man.

Detective Sergeant Kerr encouraged women to keep jogging, but urged caution when jogging with headphones in.

Women are particularly vulnerable when they’re out jogging, walking or cycling because usually they are by themselves and are distracted which makes them perfect targets for perverts.

What Is The Best Weapon For Your Self Defense?

Share

If you could choose one weapon for self-defense, which would it be?

For women the ability to defend themselves from a distance is very appealing. Most pepper sprays have a range of at least 8 feet some as high as 18 feet. Women have more opportunities to use a self-defense weapon because they are assaulted nine times more often than men.

And if you need any more convincing consider this. Every law enforcement officer in the country carries a pepper spray on his utility belt. It is a key component in their continuum of force that all law enforcement officers use in the apprehension and control of suspects in a criminal case. It is often their first nonlethal choice in the performance of their duties.

Additionally, all letter carriers with the U.S. Postal Service are issued, pepper sprays as a first line of defense against dog attacks.

So my question to you is, if it is good enough for law enforcement officers and good enough for letter carriers shouldn’t it be good enough for you and your self-defense?

White House Weighs In On Campus Sexual Assaults

Share

This is a story from Reuters news service about campus Sexual Assaults and how the White House is pressing U.S. Colleges and Universities to do more to curb these assaults.

Part of the national effort is to establish new website NotAlone.gov to help victims find resources and report crimes. This comes after a three-month study on how to curb sexual assaults on college campuses.

“Colleges and universities need to face the facts about sexual assault. No more turning a blind eye or pretending it doesn’t exist,” Vice President Joe Biden said in a statement released on Monday evening.

The White House said one in five women is sexually assaulted while attending college, most often in her first or second year of study. Usually the perpetrator is known to her and more often than not the assault goes unreported.

The new recommendations include encouraging schools to conduct a “climate survey” to identify the scope of the problem on their respective campuses, creating confidential places for victims to seek support, and initiating training programs for school officials who work with victims.

The website will provide resources for students including hotline numbers for mental health services and data on how to file complaints of abuse.

New Law To Curtail Campus Sexul Assaults

Share

Here’s another story about how state legislators in Connecticut are trying to curtail campus sexual assaults. You can read the whole story HERE.

The bill requires institutions to permit anonymous reporting of assaults, promote bystander intervention, establish resource teams to review policies and create links with local crisis centers.

There’s a lot of frustration on college campuses about what appears to be the lack of support from state legislators on this issue. “There is a lot more that needs to be done, but it needs to be done by faculty, students and staff together. Until we change that culture, until we have those young men understand that sexual assault and date rape is unacceptable, we’ll have young women going through that suffering.”

“The new legislation was initiated in response to a lawsuit filed on behalf of a number of female students (both current and former) who allege that they were raped and/or sexually assaulted, and that they felt that the university violated their rights.”

Legislators agree that it is seriously in charge problem in that something has to be done. There are way too many sexual assaults. This bill creates an impact on a person who commits that sexual assault.

How To Defend Yourself Against A Sexual Assault

Tips For Assault Prevention

Share

Here is an interesting story and video about a self-defense instructor who teaches Assault Avoidance Tips. The main thing that he teaches women in his class is to act fast not think. The reason for this is simple: when you’re in a life or death situation, reaction times are critical. A few seconds lost thinking about what to do instead of reacting may cost you your life.

He has some simple tactics and tips to keep women safe in any kind of situation

• “Wear a purse that goes across your body, not over your shoulder.
• Keep pepper spray or a small pocket knife on your keys, and hold them as though you’re ready to attack.
• Walk with your hand inside your purse, so you can grab that spray as fast as possible.
• Other simple weapons to keep in your purse: A screwdriver, scissors, or even a pencil.
• Walk with scissors dangling in your hands, no one will think anything but the potential attacker.
• Buy a small gun, one that can clip to your bra and aim for the groin area.”

Women are the subject and target of assaults nine times more often than men so they need to be a specially prepared. We have always recommended a self-defense course for all women to learn some basic tips on how to protect yourself. But we have also recommended that women carry with them at all times a self-defense product such as this new Fashion Keychain Spray by Wildfire brand which is nearly twice as hot as most pepper sprays.

Campus Sexual Assault Epidemic

Share

Here’s a story out of the Los Angeles times where Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Hillsborough) called assaults on young women in colleges a Sexual Assault Epidemic.

“The prevalence of sexual assault on campuses is an epidemic,” Speier said in an interview. “It’s going to take money, resources, enforcement and a dramatic change in the culture” to fix.

Speier said research suggests that one in five women are sexually assaulted on campuses but that nearly two-thirds of universities shirk their legal duty to address the cases. Yet, she said national momentum is growing to take stronger action against the problem.

That as you know is only the tip of the iceberg. Fewer than 10% of all sexual assaults actually get reported according to one study. Part of the reason is that so many young women are drunk on alcohol or out of it from drugs that they actually came remember what happened.

Another part of the puzzle is said the assailants are known to victims in 90% of the cases because they are classmates or live together in the same dorm and see each other virtually every day.

The best way to defend yourself against any kind of assault anywhere is with a self-defense product such as a stun gun or a pepper spray. We always recommend pepper sprays that are on keychains because that way it is with you all the time. The Mace Triple Action Spray as shown here has pepper, tear gas and a UV marking dye.

Best Stun Master Stun Guns-The Top Three

Share

In today’s blog post we are introducing you to the best stun guns from Stun Master-the top three. Stun Master has been around for close to 30 years and features quality products that all have a lifetime warranty as a testament to their quality. They are all characterized by innovation and industry leading features such as the disable pin wrist strap.

1. The first on our list is the Runt Stun Gun that is 10,000,000 volts and features a 120 lumen LED flashlight built-in along with a built-in slide out charger. It is only 3.5″x2″x1″ making it one of the smallest stun guns available. It has a protective rubberized coating and the aforementioned disable pin wrist strap.

2. Second on our list is the 11,000,000 volt HOT Shot Stunner that is only 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide and 1 inch deep. It is operated with long life lithium batteries that come with the product. It is disguised to look like a hand-held mobile device that can be worn on your belt with the free stainless steel belt clip.

3. And one of the more popular self-defense products especially against dog attacks is the 7.5 million volt rechargeable Telescoping Stun Baton. It expands from 13 inches to 21 ½ inches at the press of a button and can protect you three ways-the stun feature, a 120 dB alarm and a super bright LED flashlight.

Sexual Assault As Normal?

Share

Here’s a story from the Huffington Post about perceptions that young women have about Sexual Assaults.

It raises one potential answer to why so many sexual assault crimes-nearly 250,000 a year ago-go unreported 60% of the time. The answer is many women do not see themselves as victims.

A sociologist at Marquette University analyzed interviews with 100 girls between the ages of three and 17 who may have experienced sexual assault. Overwhelmingly, their accounts indicated sexual violence has been normalized in their communities and they considered harassment an everyday part of life rather than a criminal act.

The same study identified several reasons why these assaults are not reported including; shame fear of retribution and mistrust of authority. “The most alarming conclusion, however, is that young women regard sexual violence against them as normal. Moreover, the girls interviewed believed that men ‘can’t help it’ and perceived ‘everyday harassment and abuse as normal male behavior.”

“One participant — only 13 years old — said harassment is standard in her school: ‘They grab you, touch your butt and try to, like, touch you in the front, and run away, but it’s OK, I mean… I never think it’s a big thing because they do it to everyone.'”

This study may account for many factors when it comes to sexual assault on women in high school and college and may even be a forerunner to domestic violence.

People in position of authorities like teachers and parents must teach young men and young women that sexual violence is not acceptable before media and community norms give the impression that it is.

Sexual Assaults On Campus-Most Involve Drugs Or Alcohol

Share

Here’s a story about campus Sexual Assaults where US representative Pat Meehan R-Delaware, convened regional experts on campus safety last month to discuss the issue and come up with policy recommendations on how to narrow the gap between the number of actually assaulted women and the number who choose to report it.

Nearly 20 percent of women attending college are sexually assaulted or victims of an attempted assault, yet only between 5 and 12 percent of them report the attacks.

“That gap is staggering,” he said. “That amount of victims is eye-opening. We have a responsibility to work collaboratively to assure that we not only prevent future sexual assault in an environment like a college setting, but we are able to respond more effectively to those victims.”
Many women are under the influence when the attacks occur, he said, resulting in “incapacitated assault.”

“Incapacitated assault means that there has been alcohol, drugs, some other kind of agent that may have influenced the ability of parties to be appropriately responsive,” Meehan said Monday.

It has been estimated that as much as 70% of all sexual assaults on college campuses involved drugs or alcohol or both.

We recommend that young women everywhere, but especially on a college campus, carry a self-defense product with them. Products that are on keychains are best because they’re more likely to be with you at all times.

Two of the most popular models are this Mace Triple Action (shoiwn above) and this Sabre Keychain Model. (shown below)

Pepper sprays can incapacitate an assailant for as long as 45 minutes and are legal everywhere with a few cities and states having some restrictions.

Female Assaults On College Campuses

Share

Here is another story about Assaults On Women specifically in Missouri where U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill has led a national push to scrutinize rape and sexual assaults of women on college campuses.

“There are young women that are victimized every day, every hour, at a college campus somewhere,” McCaskill told the News-Leader on Thursday. “Too often young women second-guess themselves. ‘I should not have been drinking. I should not have been in his room. I did not know him well enough.’

“They do that instead of taking a clear look and realizing that they have a been a victim of a felony,” McCaskill said. “You do not have to have perfect judgment to be a victim of a crime.”

McCaskill previously had focused her efforts on helping women sexually assaulted in the military.

One of the main differences between colleges and the military is that the military has a rigid chain of command, which in some ways makes addressing the problem simpler. Higher education has no such line of authority.

There are other differences as well but the main similarity is women on college campuses — like women in the military — live in small, closed communities where word travels fast. This makes some students reluctant to report.

Administrators too often do not support women who report they were sexually assaulted on campus. She mentioned high-profile examples at the University of Montana and Notre Dame University. The schools fear that such publicity hurts their image and their student recruitment, she said.

Colleges administrators have been openly hostile, she said, when female students allege rape and sexual assault.

Nearly one in five women in college are victims of attempted or actual sexual assault in their undergraduate careers, according to McCaskill’s office.

A report from the National Institute of Justice states that college women are at higher risk for sexual assault than their non-college peers.

We always recommend that women on a college campus carry a self-defense product such as a pepper spray and one of the best to carry is one that’s on a keychain. We have many KEYCHAIN PEPPER SPRAYS to choose from. They are legal in just about all jurisdictions and can disable an assailant for as long as 45 minutes.

Pepper spray will cause intense pain, excessive tearing of the eyes and make breathing very difficult.

Teen Relationship Violence

Share

This is a story about how Teen Dating Violence is a growing concern all over the country. As many as one in three young women have reported they have been in a relationship where they have been injured or hurt in some way. But because of their inexperience and lack of knowledge officials say the worst part is that many teens do not even know the abuse is happening.

There is actually a move afoot to start teaching young teenagers in middle school about relationships and what constitutes a healthy one versus an unhealthy one. That idea is actually gaining traction because where else will teens learn about this topic? Right now many teens gain their knowledge of a relationship from electronic media including social media and friends and family.

That is why so many of them have no clue what a healthy relationship is or where the boundaries are.

We have always recommended that teenagers carry a self-defense product with them to defend themselves should they be physically assaulted.

Sexual Assaults In The Military

Share

This is a story about Military Sexual Assaults and the scourge that it has on military personnel. According to the Women’s Bureau between 20% and 48% of all female veterans have been sexually assaulted.

This is been going on for a long time according to them but only recently as its severity been brought to the public’s attention.

In 2012 for example soldiers were 15 times more likely to be raped by a comrade than being killed by an enemy.

Two women U.S. senators are working to change that: Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Kirsten Gillibrand. We note with interest that no male senators joined the bandwagon. We feel certain that is just a coincidence. Gillibrand has criticized Pres. Obama for failing to issue stronger reforms to protect survivors of military sexual assault.

“According to the U.S. Defense Department, out of an estimated 26,000 sexual assaults in 2012, only 3,374 were reported. The low reporting rate is unsurprising – 60 percent of victims stated that they experienced consequences for coming forward and only 302 perpetrators were actually prosecuted.

These rates echo those of civilian rape; however, there is a strong argument that this is not a societal problem but a military problem.”

The rape differential in the military reveals that the military sexual assault rate is lower than the rate of civilian rape but higher than any other military crime. The recruiting process serves to weed out those with criminal records, yet this does not appear to hold true for rates of sexual assault.

One of the best ways that women can defend themselves against sexual assault is with a self-defense item that is nonlethal. They are legal just about everywhere and are an inexpensive, effective way to defend yourself against any type of assault.

We always recommend a product that can be carried on a keychain that way it is with you at all times.
