-As a woman, you may have empathy for others and prefer to avoid confrontation and conflict. Rather than ignoring someone who could potentially cause harm, you may respond to the person to avoid offending him or her but that is too dangerous. If the person is a rapist or even a murderer, they could easily hurt you in a matter of just a few seconds. Ted Bundy, a notorious serial killer, preyed upon women and often got them to willingly help him because he would act kind, gentle, and sincere. It is for that exact reason you truly need to understand that sometimes it is not such a bad thing to ignore someone, especially if you do not feel comfortable. You do not need to care what that person thinks about you in that moment because the person who is attempting to get your attention or get help from you knows absolutely nothing about you.

-If you do end up in a bad situation where someone grabs you and places you in their vehicle’s trunk, you should kick your feet against the tail lights as hard as you possibly can. You are going to need to give it your all, but the lights will eventually fall out and then you can wave your arm around with the hope that someone will see it and make a report of a suspicious vehicle driving on the road. The person behind the wheel is not going to notice your arm dangling around but many others who are driving on the road or even walking past the vehicle will notice it.

-When someone grabs you and they have a gun, you may think your best bet is to stay still and follow their directions, but this could cause you to end up in a scarier situation. If you are worried that you are going to lose your life, the best thing you could possibly do is run at that moment. It may seem like the wrong thing to do but aiming and firing at a person is not as easy when the person is running all around. The person holding the gun may be unable to hit you with a bullet because you are not staying still and are running to get help.

-While you may be encouraged to take the staircase at work or at an apartment complex just to get some extra exercise, more crime tends to take place on the staircases, especially at night. Rather than taking the staircase, you should take the elevator and try to avoid getting on the elevator with strangers when it is late at night.

-Make sure you are prepared to put up a fight if someone is attacking you. It helps to have a stun gun or even a bottle of pepper spray to use in the event of an attack. If you do not have a stun gun or pepper spray, use your house keys or any object you are holding in your hand. If all else fails, use your arms and legs to hit back and fight this person to get out of their grasp. Try jabbing the attacker in the eyes with your fingers to cause instant pain so that you can get out of such a dire situation.

-If someone approaches you and tells you to hand over your money, purse, or any other valuables, take the items off your body or out of your pockets and throw them down to the ground. The attacker is going to want to grab those items and while he or she is bending down to pick those items up, you will have time to run away.

-If you get into your vehicle and someone happened to be in the backseat and is now holding a gun in front of your face while telling you where to go with your vehicle, put the seat belt on and then speed off in the direction of a wall, trash can, or even a tree. No one wants to get into a car accident, but if you get into an accident, the attacker may get injured and you may be able to get out of the vehicle quickly because you had a seat belt on for safety reasons. It is better than getting abducted at gunpoint by someone who could cause serious bodily harm to you.

Follow these safety tips for women whenever you are in a scary situation. You may not expect to deal with any of these situations, but they can happen at random times to anyone, so it is always better to be prepared.
