Women naturally have weaker upper body strength, so fighting off predators requires the right decisions, cunningness, and tools. Here are the best ways to stay safe.
Learn a few Self-Defense Moves
It’s a good thing to know a few self-defense moves. The first thing is to learn where the vulnerable parts of the body are. The groin, the neck, and the kidneys are all points that will take a predator down if you can strike them. Avoid dangerous neighborhoods and dark areas where attackers are more likely to strike.
Carry a Weapon
To offset the aforementioned weaker strength, a woman needs a weapon to equalize herself against a man. Even when you know self-defense moves, you still may not be able to overpower someone twice your size. Mace or a handgun are two traditional options, and here are 19 more self-defense products for women. If you decide that carrying a gun is the best option, there are smaller ones that are easy to carry. Derringers and .380s are light, portable, and useful. There are a lot of options for conceal carry clothing too, even concealed carry yoga pants!
Marry a Kind Man
Marrying a kind man serves in two ways for your protection. Firstly, you will avoid domestic violence. Secondly, you will have someone to protect you and ward off potential threats. The article entitled “One way to end violence against women? Married dads.” from The Washington Post explains it well.
“The bottom line is this: Married women are notably safer than their unmarried peers, and girls raised in a home with their married father are markedly less likely to be abused or assaulted than children living without their own father.”
Making good choices about who to marry, and which neighborhood to visit will do a lot to keep you safe. Knowing how to defend yourself with self-defense moves or a weapon will ensure your safety.
