How to Protect Women

The most important personal safety skills that we want women to practice include
  • Assessing the person’s behavior and being aware of potential danger signs
  • Getting centered to calm themselves down so that they can think clearly and make safer choices instead of panicking or escalating the argument
  • Protecting themselves emotionally rather than being triggered or coerced by the mean things someone says  to them
  • Using verbal self-defense tactics to defuse a potentially violent interaction
  • Protecting themselves physically without fighting back
  • Creating a safety plan for how to leave and for how to get help
