College students (or parents of a college student) worry about being safe on campus. Campus safety is a nationwide concern that can not be overlooked or ignored. According to Whitehouse.gov, “one in five women will be assaulted during their time in college.”
NextStepU has often covered safety with articles and tips. Today we are thrilled to be able to offer information about the TigerLady Self-Defense Claw.
TigerLady is an innovative self-protection device designed for women with a dual purpose; holding it provides a feeling of readiness and quiet confidence to the user, and when necessary, TigerLady immediately reveals itself to be a potent self-defense tool to shift the balance of power.
“We want women to feel safe and in control in every situation,” states Jeff Levine, co-founder of TigerLady, who went on to say, “holding this device will help a woman feel confident, and more aware of her surroundings.” Co-founder Evan Levine adds, “We want to give women discrete protection so potential attackers will be unaware of their capabilities.” Additionally, co-founder Josh Levine points to Federal State Department research that states, “89% of assaults did not involve the use of a weapon,” and “84% of assault victims reported the use of physical force only.”
TigerLady is modeled after a cat’s retractable claws. Simply squeezing the device immediately exposes three claws between your fingers. Hollow channels on the underside of the claws capture the attacker’s tissue for DNA analysis, so “you don’t need to see him, to ID him.” Weighing less than 2 ounces, TigerLady is small enough to fit in a pocket or handbag, and requires no maintenance.
