It's back!! Personal Safety Course for Women and Girls 14+

Pin It
Hey Ladies! 

The Mississauga Safe City Initiative is once again hosting a personal safety course, and you are invited to attend!

In light of recent comments made in the GTA (stating that the reason women are sexually assaulted is they dress provocatively, and not because power dynamics AROUND THE WORLD tell attackers that their behaviour is acceptable and they will receive no repercussions); I thought what a great time to remind women of this wonderful, low-cost course offered in the city.

Ladies, the truth is the law may not try/want/or even believe they have to protect you. Victim/survivor blaming is shameful, but rampant. It is the unfortunate norm. However, you can choose to learn to protect yourself! 

The course is a one day intensive and covers the following areas: 
  • Developing an early warning system
  • Situational awareness
  • Developing a survival mindset
  • Legal aspects of self-protection
  • Direct techniques for physical protection
This is an excellent opportunity to teach yourself and your daughters/nieces/sisters etc. that they do not have to be helpless victims of violence!  

Please fill out the registration form and email it to:  OR fax to: 905-615-4111.

If you have any questions about the program please send your questions to the above email address.
