What do you think is the best self defense weapons for women? My best friend Ruthie used to carry this ballpen than converts to a mini knife back in college. Pretty useful, i think but scary. I learned from my cousin mitchie to bring along a pepper spray when going home late at night, so i bought one for myself and thank God i haven’t used it for anyone. But how would you react if you’re caught in a bad situation? I know it’s scary and i never ever wanna go through that. Experts say don’t try to fight off. If they want your cellphone…throw it to them then run as fast as you can. Their attention is to not to get you but your phone, then go to a place where there are lots of people…if there are guards nearby, go there quickly. 2 things to remember..keep a strong presence of mind and pray a lot! Keep safe everyone!
