Self-defense is a countermeasure that involves defending the well-being of oneself from harm. The use of the right of self-defense as a legal justification for the use of force in times of danger is available in many jurisdictions, but the interpretation varies widely.

Self defense is important for everybody, especially for women because statistics say that all women are good candidates to become victims of violent crime at any point in their lives. According to statistics, a woman who is only 21 years of age has a 25 percent risk of suffering violent crime in her life. Self defense is more than just okay. When a woman’s safety is in danger, defending herself by fighting back is the most ethical decision she can make.
