Guest Post: Damsel in Defense
I am an Independent Representative with Damsel In Defense. We are a fairly new company, founded in 2011, with less than 7,000 consultants nationwide, and we have a mission to spread - to Equip, Empower and Educate people regarding personal protection and to try to do our part in lowering the staggering statistics facing our nation today. We offer non-lethal, self-defense products to not only keep people safe, but to also build their confidence so they know that they have a way out if they ever feel threatened.
Statistics show that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime and an aggravated assault occurs every 35 seconds. College age women are 4 times more likely to be assaulted. Damsel in Defense has the products and fact-based education that can and does save lives.
Until crime ceases to exist, we need to protect ourselves and our loved ones from any due harm. We take the time to prepare for natural disasters but we so rarely think about our own personal safety, so why not prepare ourselves for an attack if it should ever arise? On the news every morning you hear of assaults and 9 times out of 10 of them, having one of our products could have avoided or changed the outcome of the situation. We all know that assaults will continue to rise, especially with the time change coming up and people doing their daily tasks, but in the dark.
We carry a wide variety of personal protection products, including, stun guns, pepper spray, kubatons, door alarms, emergency car kits, child trackers, personal alarms, etc. Our pepper spray is 18% OC and contains a UV dye which stays on a would-be attacker for 7-10 days. While our products are geared towards women, many men are also customers. They not only purchase products for the women in their lives, but also for themselves.
We aren't the typical "party" company, we call our “parties” Empower Hours (that's about how long they last). I will do Empower Hours, one-on-one consultations, a get together with 2 friends or 50, I just want to spread the mission and help equip and educate women.
