According to RAINN.org, there are approximately 237,868 victims (age 12 or older) of sexual assault each year. Every 2 minutes an American is sexually assaulted… and 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. These are disgusting, unfortunate facts. It seems absurd, but these 11 products were created to help women around the world fight back against rape. They may seem silly, but they could legitimately help women protect themselves.
1.) This anti-rape, anti-mugging dress was created so that women can hide in plain sight.
2.) This belt buckle requires two hands to use, preventing attackers from easily removing clothing.
3.) India’s National Institute of Fashion Technology created these anti-molestation jackets. It would shock people giving unwanted advances.
4.) An anti-rape whistle that can be worn as jewelry.
5.) AR Wear (anti-rape) is made so that it can’t be torn or ripped off, protecting its wearer.
6.) This lingerie can be used to shock attackers.
7.) Female condoms with “teeth” that attach to a man’s penis and would need removed by a doctor.
8.) The Guardian Angel necklace, which will either cause your phone or ring or will send a text to a friend when you press a button.
9.) Hairy tights women can wear that will deter “perverts.”
10.) Consent panties remind partners that consent is necessary for engaging in sexual activity.
11.) This tampon has a hidden blade inside, so if a man attacks a woman and attempts to rape her, he’ll be stabbed.
(H/T BuzzFeed) It’s sad that there was a need for these products, and they may seem crazy, but if they protect people from sexual assault then their creation is warranted. It’s so horrifying that there are people around the world that might actually need items like these. Share these products (you never know who you may help if you do).
