Trish Hoffman has made it her goal to teach women how to feel safe and prepared, no matter what. In the video above, she demonstrates how a woman can defend herself against an attacker in three specific scenarios. 

There's no way of knowing how strong your attacker may be. So these moves involve either going for vulnerable areas of the body, like the eyes, groin, and knees, or attempting to throw them off balance. Most importantly, once you've gotten away from an attacker, get to a safe place.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
