This workshop teaches the women how to avoid the emergency attacks and protect herself. This training will make you feel more empowered and confident. I think these kinds of workshops are necessary for all girls considering the fact that there has been a recent spurt in the crimes against women and it has become essential that every woman should know how to protect herself against such crimes, should also be aware of emergency helplines in case of emergency and more importantly about her legal rights as well.”
