Books – Armed and Female

Rape is not about SEX – it’s about POWER. Robbery is not about PROPERTY – it’s about POWER.

Having your POWER taken from you is mentally unhealthy, emotionally demeaning and spiritually devastating. Living in constant daily fear of predators — whom you may meet tomorrow, or next year, or never — puts a depressive damper on your vitality and joy in life.

You cannot let the threat of a possible crime hang over you and blacken your days. The purpose of pro-actively getting ready to defend yourself isn’t just to handle some possible FUTURE confrontation. The purpose is to put a spring in your step and a glint in your eyes TODAY.

That’s why we call it EMPOWERMENT.
