From an early age, women are taught to be vigilant, to be hyper-aware of their surroundings, and to never be alone. Statistically, women are more likely to be victims of violent crime than men, meaning there’s always an additional target on their backs. However, the best tool for self-protection is not always a weapon, but instead, one’s situational awareness.

Damsel Director with Damsel In Defense Nancy Abercrombie discusses the mission behind her organization, as well as the services it provides. She shares how she was inspired to spread the message of self-defense, and later provides safety tips and ways in which listeners should listen to their intuition.

Damsel In Defense is an organization that works to educate women on the ways in which they can defend themselves when exposed to danger, while also empowering them to possess the confidence they need in order to do so.
