I just recently found out about a company that takes self-defense seriously. Er, or rather, they take it with a grain of humor. They offer many gadgets, kits, and devices for people (more specifically women) to defend themselves with. They offer everything from car kits to emergency kits to stun guns. While I’m turned off by the bright pink and purple and the the cringe-inducing term “hermergency” I am actually impressed by their selection and might even try some of these tools out. I’m also wondering if they plan on expanding their products to the larger population in general or even just women who aren’t “typically girly”. Anyway, their representatives throw protection parties and actually teach folks how to use their products, which is very important. I’m sure there are other places that offer these devices but nothing beats a demonstration. I definitely want to look more into this company. I think it’s a great thing that they’re doing and I wanted to spread the word. What do you think? What kinds of things would you like to see them add? What designs would you put on the products so that they’re more accessible? Do you think it’s a great idea or should people take a different approach when it comes to personal safety?
