Dads can’t always be around to defend their precious daughters. But they CAN help them become the kind of person that a would-be predator regrets ever having tangled with.
Add security to a building, and a ‘soft’ target becomes hardened. Hardened targets are much more difficult for the bad guys to mess with.
The same is true of people. You don’t need the ability to bench press a Buick to scare off an attacker. The solution is simpler than most folks think: give the ‘victim’ some training and a skill set, and they can stand a solid chance of not becoming a victim or a statistic in an encounter with some would-be malicious scumbag.

No one, unless they’ve been in the same situation, can ever really understand the stress and self-doubt one goes through when sexual harassment occurs.
Regis Giles’ new book will teach you how to escape the world of #MeToo victim and become the #WarriorChick you were meant to be!
