Sexual Assault Is Not A Selective Crime
It happens on streets, in cars, in schools, in parks, in alleys. The rapist has no regard for age, race or social status. Women, as a general rule, are more likely to fear being victimized.
Personal safety, however, must begin with the individual.
How can a woman address these fears? They can reduce their fear by having a greater understanding of how to predict when a crime is likely to occur and take steps to avoid becoming a victim.
They also need to possess some skills with simple physical techniques that can help them deter attacks or even escape a determined attacker.
