Kidnapping and rape are very serious issue that threaten women in every part of the world. According to the Rape in America study, 683,000 women are raped every year. Not only women, children too are at a great risk of such crimes. Although there has been an increase in the level of awareness and subsequent support for the victims, yet we do not see any decrease in the daily episodes of violence, mostly violence on women and children! The newspaper and electronic media is overflowing with such disturbing accounts on a regular basis.
Self- defense is a tool that empowers and protects, and also increases the confidence level in women or any individual. Amy Staley is an independent Damsel Pro, who is trying to make a difference by educating women and empowering them through the wonderful line of Damsel in Defense, which was founded in September 2011 by Mindy Lin and Bethany Hughes. Damsel in Defense, is about equipping women with the tools to keep themselves and their loved ones safe, increasing their confidence with the knowledge that- they have a way out whenever they feel threatened. Amy is proud to be able to “Equip, Empower and Educate,” women to be able to be safe in a world that is highly unsafe.
