THANKS TO LAZ....
The world is full of rapists and muggers. Here are some tips for women and girls in the unfortunate case they should meet up with a pedophile or a Clinton-type.
Tips for girls and women, regardless of age:
* The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, ... do it!
* If you are ever thrown in the trunk of a car; Kick out the back tail lights; Stick your arm out of the hole, and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives!
Three reasons women are easy targets:
* Lack of Awareness. You must know where you are, what's going on around you.
* Body language. Keep your head up, swing your arms, stand straight up.
* Wrong Place, wrong time. Don't walk alone in an alley, or drive in a bad neighborhood at night.
Getting in to your car:
* As soon as you get in your car, lock the doors, and leave!
* Be aware, ... look around you, and look in your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.
* If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
* Look at the cars parked next to you. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, walk back into the mall, or work and get a guard/policeman to walk back out with you. (Better paranoid than dead.)
* Always take the elevator instead of stairs. Do not get on an elevator if a weirdo is already on. And remember, bad men don't always look bad.
* Do not stand back in the corners of the elevator, be near the front, by the doors, ready to get off or on.
* If you get on the elevator, and the "Boogie Man" gets on the next few floors, get off when he gets on.
* If the predator has a gun (and you're not under his control) always run! Even police only make 4 of 10 shots, in a range of 3-9 feet. This is due to stress. The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times. And even then, it will most likely not be in a vital organ.
Tips to save your life if you've gotten into a violent situation:
* React immediately! If he abducts you in a parking lot, and is taking you to an abandoned area, don't let him get you to that area! If you're driving, crash your car while still going 5 mph. If he's driving, find the right time, and stick your fingers in his eyes. He must watch the road, so choose an unsuspecting time, and gouge him. It is your only defense!!! While he is in shock, get out. (This sounds gross, but the alternative is your fault if you do not act.)
* Resist.. Don't go along with him, & run, ... if you are able;
* Don't ever give up! You do not want to get to a crime scene.
* Always keep your distance when walking past strangers.
* Get a cell phone and keep it handy.
* Avoid breakdowns, ... by keeping your car in good working order. If your car does break down lock your doors. You should have a cell phone to call for help. If it's noon on a business day, you may want to put on your hazard lights, and walk to safety.
Physical defenses women can use:
* The eyes are the most vulnerable part of the body. Poke him there, hard. It may be your only window of opportunity.
* The knees are very vulnerable, and a swift kick to the knees will take anyone down.
* A well placed kick in the groin area should give you plenty of time to get away.
A cautionary note about these things:
* If you do not do these things right the first time; you are in trouble, because it will only anger the individual, and that anger will be taken out on you. I'm not saying don't attempt them (it may be your only hope), but be forceful when you do.
* If you are walking alone in the dark (which you shouldn't be), and you find him following/chasing you Scream, "Fire!" not, "Help". People don't want to get involved when people yell "help", but "fire" draws attention because people are basically nosey.
* Run! Find an obstacle, such as a parked car, and run around it, like "Ring Around the Rosie." This may sound silly, but it has saved lives.
Our world is not as safe as we pretend, and living in our fantasy worlds will get us in trouble. The women and girls who die every minute from violent crimes expected to go to bed tonight, and wake up tomorrow. Be prepared to act, and act hard! Have a plan.
I would encourage you to pass this on to all women, not just your friends and family, but everybody.

Just a couple of comments from someone who's been there--AND yes I know this is shouting----
PLEASE NEVER TELL A WOMAN TO KICK IN THE GROIN-- MOST MEN EXPECT THAT-- THAT IS FUTILE AND MANY KNOW HOW TO OVERRIDE THAT
PEPPER SPRAY CAN BE OVERCOME
AND HATE TO SAY THIS BUT MANY SELF DEFENSE CLASSES ARE BOGUS BECAUSE YOU WILL DO SOMETHING STUPID:
DON'T BOTHER TO USE THE MOVES UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO MAIM OR KILL THE PERSON -- SAME THING GOES FOR GUNS-- YOU MUST MAKE THAT DECISION AHEAD OF TIME--OR YOUR 3 SEC DELAY OF DECISION CAN BE COSTLY. AND DON'T BE STUPID ENOUGH TO TRY AND STAY AROUND AND FIGHT.
Yes-- attitude works to a point-- sends a signal you aren't a wimp or a victim and they may be less likely to strike. BUT you must be able to carry through. It is no different a game than lawyers play in the courtroom or whatever political game goes on in the office-- except this time it is your life and the decision to maim or kill must be made ahead of time or the perp will seize the moment. And I REPEAT-- do NOT stand around and fight but if the opportunity arises-- maim/kill and get the h*** out.
