How about 'VOFA/VAFA' - Voice against female attrocities/abuse..

Its true that thers always talks about this issue but still need to figure out how practical and well this can be carried out apart from being self-cautious.It should also be carried out by common ppl like us apart from govts,ngo's.

Along with imparting self-defense,carrying materials in handbags..we should be educated on how we handle panicking situations/circustances with a real time example by joining hands with the cops/ngo's/self defense trainers/pshycatrists/drug dealers etc probably say at weekdays/weekends for 1 hour.

As we could see, its mostly the situations that falls favour to evil thoughts.If this can be carried out with associations of cops also then I think they can provide as many as case studies which would be helpful to illustrated...if this could be started by the HR would in turn lead to many cases where the sensitive places/circumstances can be thrown light and some actions can be voiced to restrict the same.Cos corporates are strong!!

Hi all,

Here are a few tips I can think of....

1. When leaving home, make sure that all doors and windows are locked - including the garage door.

2. Watch for loiterers and do not carry large sums of money.

3. If possible, travel with another person. This is especially true after dark.

4. When carrying a purse, women should have only 3 or 4 one dollar bills placed inside. Credit cards, currency, driver's license, keys and jewelry should be carried in a coat or sweater pocket or concealed on your person to reduce the opportunity of large losses. If you do carry a purse, don't wrap the strap around your shoulder, neck or wrist. If your purse is grabbed, a strong strap will not yield easily and you may be injured. Some purse snatch victims have been thrown off balance & received concussions, broken hips, arms or legs. Don't carry anything more valuable than you can afford to lose. Always leave all unnecessary credit cards at home. When you shop and carry a purse, put it in your shopping bag.

5. At night, travel only well-lighted and well-traveled streets.

6. Never hitchhike or accept rides from strangers.

7. Walk on the side of the street nearest to oncoming traffic. If accosted by someone in a car, run in the direction opposite the way the car is headed.

8. Beware of people who approach asking directions; keep a polite but safe distance.

9.. Upon returning home, particularly after dark, do not linger at the entrance of your residence. Make a quick check for mail or newspapers, and enter immediately. If you feel something is strange, don't enter but go elsewhere and call for police assistance.

10. If you feel someone is following you, go to the nearest occupied residence or building, and ask for assistance.

11. If you are confronted with a dangerous situation, cry out for assistance. Yelling "FIRE! FIRE!" instead of "Help!" will generally bring faster attention.

Hope this ll be useful to some extent.
Then we have to give safety for women cab drivers too....
They have men becos they can take control of any difficult situation, muh more than women.
(No I am not kidding and don get angry... I was serious abt that thought)
I believe that its nt abt cab drivers . . .its abt women that we need to take care of.
Seniors / Collegues, I am sure all of you are concerned about the security of women. But why don’t you help us materialize this initiative. Let’s make it big!!! Thanks
Hi All,
Is it just about safety of working women while going home? ???
Women are not safe in the offices too....there are incidents where women are harrassed by their bosses etc... what safety measures or actions should be taken then????
We should try develop an platform , where a women can raise a voice against these kind of people without any fear or pressure.
and i feel that liberty & support can only be given by their own family members, colleagues and that women feel more secure and can freely talk about the harrasment and the problems they face with these kind of people..
I hope no one can deny this point about women safety.
Lets join make our society safer for women.

What men can do about womens safety

Men can help by taking the issue of women's safety seriously in their everyday lives.

Bear these points in mind:

If you are walking in the same direction as a woman on her own, don't walk behind her - this may worry her. Cross the road and walk on the other side. This may reassure her that you are not following her.

Don't sit too close to a woman on her own in a railway carriage or bus.

If you are thinking of chatting to a woman waiting, for example, at a lonely bus stop, remember that she won't know you mean no harm.

Realise how threatening actions such as staring, whistling, passing comments and jostling can be, particularly when you are one of a group of men.

Help female friends or family members by giving them a lift or walking them home when you can. If you do, make sure they are safely indoors before you leave.

Oh maybe ..a second thought can begiven to cab drivers:huh:..U see pro's n con's always exist:confused:...Actually Sumit the victims always keep talking much..:-DAnother thing i must really it anybody one should atleast act without panicking or say presemce of mind.Cos I've encountered two such case myself.I'm just trying to bring out the situation so that the msg is conveyed.Espescially gals/ladies need to be so We just need to be daring as far our safety concerns
This happened when I was returning home from work via a local transport "share auto" in chennai around 8pm.After a distance there were two of us left in the auto one of whom was a guy.And he behaved indirectly in an abusive manner which irritated me but I could not even move from that place cos i was seated in d corner.Then i took the pen knife which i used to carry evryday n was holding it by the side of my shoulders unseen.Bingo!!! guess what when the auto hit the speed bumps it wounded him to a certain extent which forced him to move away from me but he wasnt aware that i did that.

Another incident which took recently when a theif:ph34r: was trying to break into the house at nite.without waking anybody I went downstairs,rang the neighbours from my mobile and then when heard ppls sound's turned on all the lights in&outside of my house..and he was caught but he somehow escaped still.But thanks to God, he dint enter the house.And, yes I do have pepper sprays,red chilli powder sprays handy.:roll:

So, everyone in their own way are affected..especialy women,gals travelling by public transport.Well, this topic can go on..But i just wanted to point out presence of mind
