Awareness = born through knowledge – some points:
» Don’t be alone with a strange looking man(person) – be gone or never got there in the first place. They want you to be alone!
People tend to stay or get in strange situations while there is room for prevention.
» Don’t look at your telephone at certain public spaces.
» Have sight – do not have a strange person standing behind you.
» Recognize strange behaviour.
» Also, use reaction-distance (in combination with sight) and when your instincts tell you to do something – ACT!
Violence against women:
It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment) at some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime. Evidence shows that women who have experienced physical or sexual intimate partner violence report higher rates of depression, having an abortion and acquiring HIV, compared to women who have not.
