The recent news about women’s under attack in working place, which questions us the safety for women in society. The list continues from Nirbaya to Rasila Raju and Nandhini. Hence Knowledge professionals forum planned for an activity on self-defense for women.
Why should woman learn Self Defense?
Most of the time women will argue, that they have little need for learning self-defense as they avoid potentially dangerous situation e.g. allowing a stranger into their house, walking alone late at night etc. However it’s impossible to be 100% safe as decision making in life is not black and white and instead consists of many ‘grey areas’ example: does someone you work with and see on a day-to-day basis, even though you may actually know very little about them, constitute a stranger?
Self-defense is important because statistics say that all women are good candidates to become victims of violent crime at any point in their lives. According to statistics, a woman who is only 21 years of age has a 25 percent risk of suffering violent crime in her life. Self defense is more than just okay. When a woman’s safety is in danger, defending herself by fighting back is the most ethical decision she can make.
Some women find themselves at a greater risk for becoming the victim of either serious assault or murder. Even though women are targeted, the overall point is that their needless victimization could have been prevented. Even women who perform the necessary steps to stay alive-such as getting a restraining order, hiding, and filing criminal charges-still end up dead. Therefore, avoiding any violent attack is better that attempting to survive one.
Join us to ensure safety for women in society and work place.
