A woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself.
Indio, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
According to a 2007 study made by the National Crime Victimization Survey, 248,300 women were raped or sexually assaulted, which was a dramatic increase from 2005's findings of 190,600 cases. Former police officer, Janice Lee Moss, understands the harrowing experience that women can go through, which is why she launched her preventative website http://www.AuntieJannSelfDefense.com.
"Women are getting attacked and I'm hoping to help them and teach them how to protect themselves," explained Moss.
Moss's mantra is inspired by Susan B. Anthony, one of America's most treasured citizens and a pivotal figure in the women's suffrage movement, who once declared, "A woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself."
Through AuntieJannSelfDefense.com, women can find various types of pepper spray, stun guns, folding knives, and personal alarms and all at reasonable prices. The absence of firearms goes along with Moss's personal belief.
"Guns are trouble," she said. "In the field of self-defense, they're overkill."
Moss also insists that the products on her website can also be used for children and elderly people ("They need something to protect themselves with.").
In addition to having one of the most user-friendly website, Moss has recently developed a blog that coincides with her web store.
"I'll be writing about the crimes that are happening and put up peoples' personal stories regarding situations that they've been in, as well as the measures women can take to protect themselves with these items," said Moss of http://www.AuntieJannSelfDefenseInfo.com.
"The way that this economy is, it's common that violent crimes happen and people need to have both access to weapons to help them defend themselves, as well as the know how," she added.
While statistics regarding crimes against women in 2008 has yet to be released, thanks to someone like Janice Lee Moss, there's hope that women (as well as children and the elderly) are given a chance to fight back against would-be attackers and become more than statistics; they'll be heroines.
