Women Who Know Self-Defense Are Safer
Women who took a self-defense course reported significantly less unwanted sexual contact one year later than women in a control group who did not take a self-defense course (Cascade 2013).
You can find a summary of the research of Jocelyn Hollander, University of Oregon sociologist, in “Are Women Safer When They Learn Self-Defense?” (Cascade 2013).
The answer is YES!
