| Because every situation is
different, there's no one solution for thwarting an attack. We recommend
a powerful Triple Action Fogger, for a woman, mainly
for it's stopping power.
If you are attacked, evaluate the situation and look for ways to escape.
some women have avoided sexual assault by talking their way out of it, acting
crazy or fighting back. A kick in the groin isn't usually successful
because men instinctively protect this area, and you may lose your
balance. If you decide to respond physically, remember that your first
priority is to get away. Act quickly and derisively to throw the
attacker off guard while you escape.
After an attack:
A. Go to a safe place.
B. Call the police.
C. Preserve evidence - don't shower or douche; blood and semen are
important evidence. And don't change your clothes or disturb the scene
of the crime.
D. Get medical care.
Medical attention is vital! Many hospitals provide free care for rape
victims and offer pregnancy prevention and venereal disease treatment.
Remember, even if you do get treatment immediately, follow-up tests for
V.D. are essential.
Never be embarrassed because of the incident. Although rape or sexual
assault is difficult to talk
about, it is important to tell doctors what sex acts took place so they
will know what medical attention is needed.
Try to remember in detail your exact experience, for police records.
Give as accurate and complete description of your assailant as possible.
This is extremely important! Your complete co-operation with local
authorities may help in preventing similar attacks on other girls and
