Self Defence Workshop Decreases Sexual Assaults
Young females attending university are known to be at significant risk for sexual assault, but a prevention program jointly tested on three Canadian campuses suggests the incidence of such violence can be dramatically reduced with a simple 10 hour women’s self-defence program.
The self-defence program was introduced at the universities and there was a 46 per cent decrease in complete rape across 12 months of all universities, compared with women in the control group. There was also a 63 per cent decrease in the number of attempted sexual assaults, as well as drops in other kinds of non-consensual sexual contact and attempted coercion.
It simply proves that when women have knowledge and skills and confidence, they can stand up for their sexual rights and fight back when necessary.
