Women fight back every day around the world against oppression, crime and brutality. But these stories rarely ever make headlines.
Instead, the media continues to push the "helplessness" theory of women by continually reporting on the negative.
Therefore, we've started a new series: Women Fight Back to update you with stories of women who have taken responsibility for their own personal self defense safety and have found the courage to defend themselves and their families.
It doesn't take much to take back control of your own safety. Enjoy the read!
