In the United States, a woman is raped every two minutes.
A 1993 survey showed that 50% of Canadian women have experienced sexual assault or physical violence.
In Australia, 19% of women aged 18-24 have experienced violence in the past year.
Statistics show that one in four women in the United States will be sexually assaulted during their lifetime. Chapter
For more than 30 years, I have been teaching professional courses and seminars in self-defense. During that time, I showed thousands of people how to protect and take care of themselves.
Improving personal safety always starts with awareness.
Since most women are most afraid of sexual assault, most of my quick tips are aimed at this.
If you are a woman, here is a list of ten simple things you can do right away to improve your safety:
1-Do not wear revealing clothes in public places. Doing so will ensure that you attract a lot of attention, including the attention of malicious people. When you can enjoy your partner’s intimacy, please be cautious and keep provocative clothing.
2 Trust your instincts. Women’s instincts are very keen. If you think a situation may be dangerous, then it may be. That little guardian angel should be trusted, not ignored.
3-Rapes and other sexual assaults have been on the rise. If the worst outcome occurs, use your fingernails to excavate the attacker’s cheek. Mark their identity and there will be DNA under your nails.
4-Drive your car in a courteous manner. Nobody appreciates rude gestures. Remember: you will eventually have to stop, even to refuel. The mentally ill can follow you for miles, “just to teach you a lesson”, all because you have become the target of their twisted thinking.
5-Excessive drinking, taking mental-altering drugs, and leaving any food or drink unattended can cause disasters. Give yourself a fair chance.
6-Never hitchhiking, never hitchhiking yourself.
7-If you live alone, please make sure all your mail is addressed with only your first initials and last name. Never allow mail to be sent to you in greetings such as miss, lady, young lady, or your name or first name. Those letters and packages pass the eyes of many people before they reach you. Change them. Make them inconspicuous in terms of gender and marital status. Why let others know some extra information about you?
8-Do not walk alone in remote areas at night or at any time. Predators love these places. Avoid them.
9-Many sexual acts are performed by people the victim knows, or at least people they think they know! Be polite and polite, but pay attention to obvious signs of “strange” behavior. Don’t flirt. Resolutely oppose any unnecessary care, especially in the workplace.
10-There are usually some visual signs before the sexual assault, which usually has some verbal methods before the physical action. Order of recognition: look-talk-attack.
Feel free to distribute this safety list to all the women you care about. The only condition is that the resource box is intact and no changes have been made to this article.
There are many predators outside. Let us help our women protect themselves! Don’t let someone you know be the next victim.
