“Do you agitate while travel alone in a bus or hiring a taxi to reach home at night? It is justified to fear pessimism. But important is to overcome the odd situations. Prepare and prevent, don’t repair and repent”
Streets are not safe, especially for women. Working women has no other option than to travel back home late at night. School and college girls even have to travel alone most of the time. So here are some safety cusps for travelling and working women.
# 1. Stay aware.
Awareness is your first strand of defense. Unless you are aware of your surroundings, you cannot help yourself. Kicking the attacker at the groin and running to the cops is what we think about awareness but that comes after you stay aware. Attackers always take advantage of surprises. They know, once they attack you suddenly who will be in a state of shock and that is when they anesthetize you. To provide such shock, stay aware when you are travelling alone. Carry a pepper spray in your one hand and always set your phone emergency number to cops “100”, so that once you are attacked you spray the bottle at their eyes and dial cops without even unlocking your screen because unlocking screen then dialing a number will imbibe your time.
