Safety Tips For Women

  1.  The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.  Ponytail or something that can be grabbed.
  2. They look for a woman with clothing easy to remove quickly.
  3. They look for someone using a cell phone, searching in their purse, etc as this indicates someone who is off guard.
  4. Quite often abductions happen from the grocery store parking lots or public restrooms.
  5. They want to quickly grab her and move her to a location where they don’t have to worry about being caught.
  6. If you put up any kind of fight they get discouraged.
  7. Men are disinclined to pick on a woman with an umbrella or similar visible object.

Points to Remember

  1. If someone is following you in the street, garage, elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question like ”What time is it?” or make small talk; ”can’t believe it’s so cold” etc Now you have seen their face you lose appeal as a target.
  2. You can always tell them firmly to ”Stand back” or ”Don’t come near me.”
  3. If you carry Pepper Spray, warn them you have it.
  4. If someone grabs you pinch the attacker under the arm between elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh hard.  It hurts.
  5. After the initial hit, always go for the groin – they don’t like getting hurt there.
  6. If the guy puts his hands up to you grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible.  Knuckles crack audibly.
  7. Always be aware of your surroundings and walk quickly and purposely and watch out for odd behaviour.
  8. The elbow is the strongest part of your body – if you are close enough use it.
  9. If a robber asks for your purse maybe take out a fake empty one and toss it away from you then run in the other direction.
  10. If you are thrown into the trunk of a car kick out the back lights and put your arm through and wave like crazy.  This has saved lives.
  11. Don’t get into your car and sit there.  Drive away.
  12. Check the car before you get in in case someone is in the back.  Do this also before riding in a cab.
  13. Be careful if you are parked next to a van.
  14. Stairwells are sometimes a crime spot to avoid.
  15. If the predator has a weapon run.
