80% are under age 30
What can we do?
Be prepared. Getting training, building oneself up mentally and emotionally, gaining confidence, having a few good, go to moves. Being trained in avoidance, in knowing what one will do or not do.
I have worked with so many women, and girls, AFTER they have been assaulted. I am currently of the opinion, that self-defense training, and foundations in education regarding prevention ought to be as common as learning to swim. After all, what if the stats were 1 in 6 females will fall into water and drown? I mean even with training, assault can happen --- just as some strong swimmers drown in some situations. However, I wish i could give every girl, and boy for that matter a fighting chance, as it were.
