Watch Your Back: 11 Ways Women Can Protect Themselves

- By

Don’t be careless with your clutch.

A part of sister solidarity in me dies when I see women enter a training or a class and leave their purses behind to use the bathroom because they have this attitude of “We’re all in this together.” It’s sad that we have to live in a world where we have to view every stranger we come across as a suspect, but the truth is no matter how friendly someone seems to be you have a responsibility for your own safety.  It’s nothing personal.  Also, make it a habit to keep your purse, cell phone and other important items close to you so no one with sticky fingers can snatch your belongings.  I always say, if you’re going to snatch my cell phone, you’re going to have to feel me up to do it.
