Criminals have a plan when they commit a crime. So should you in order to avoid becoming the next target and victim.

Here is a summary of the top 10 safety tips every woman should have in her safety arsenal:

1. Don’t Ignore Your Surroundings

Pay attention to your environment. Focus on where you are going. Don’t get lost in your thoughts. Look around you to see if there are any potential problems. Worry about strangers hanging around your car; why are they there? Don’t talk on your cell while you're walking to your car or strolling along on the street. Keep your head up and make eye contact.

2. Don’t Be a Soft Target

Act in a way that says "Don’t Even Think about It" to any criminal hanging around. First, do not be oblivious to everything around see - see #1. Second, do not act scared. Third, make eye contact and don’t slouch. Fourth, speak up and look at folks.

3. Have a Plan

While it’s okay to be a free spirit and spontaneous, even butterflies have plans when attacked. Be prepared. You know that if you are confronted, you have a plan on how to escape and your next steps. Scan for exits wherever you are. When you're home, have an escape plan with your family.

4. Don’t Ignore Your Instincts

Although most of us aren’t Neanderthals, our instincts are still an early warning system. Our instincts are an intrinsic early warning system hardwired into our DNA. Don’t ignore your feelings that the group of mooks hanging across the street could be trouble or that your "date" is overly friendly.

5. Do Not Comply with a Criminal

We all know that when a mook is mugging you or trying to rape you and tells you that he won't hurt you, he really means it. Because, well, criminals get to their esteemed positions by always telling the truth and are really only looking out for your best interests.

6. Do Not Give Up

Take the time to learn self-defense. When attacked, don’t ever stop fighting back.

7. Do Not Focus on Complex Techniques

You don’t need years and years of martial arts training based on fine motor skills to be effective. The simple moves based on gross motor skills are extremely effective.

8. Do Not Focus on Not Getting Hurt

We may ruin that manicure, but we’ll also be alive. In any confrontation, expect to get a scratch, bruise, broken bone, or a cut trying to escape.

9. Do Not Rely on a Lethal Weapon

Unless you know how to use one effectively and are always carrying, have a back up plan. The best weapons you have are your brain and your body.

10. Do Not Wait to Be Attacked Before Responding

Although we have been properly trained in the rules of etiquette; and are exceedingly polite and considerate to all of those around us, once confronted, all bets are off. Yell "stay back", "no", "what do you want", "I don't want any trouble."
