With the city increasingly becoming unsafe for women, here are some tips which you can use to protect yourselves.

Despite national outrage over the brutal Delhi gang rape and murder, crime against women continues unabated. With the city increasingly becoming unsafe for women, here are some tips which you can use to protect yourselves.

1
Tools for self-defence

Self-defence is a vital consideration for every woman’s safety. In the face of an attack, a sturdy hairbrush, a large key, or even a pen could help you defend yourself by immobilising the attacker
   
2
Be prepared at all times

Keep these simple tools handy always. It’s important to grip the base of the instrument firmly. Chances are that the attacker will not be expecting it, but when he sees this he will think again
   
3
Immobilise the attacker

If he doesn’t notice it and attacks you, just use it to punch him in the face, in the area of the neck, may be even in the eye if you can be precise. This should immobilise the attacker, giving you sufficient time to get away
