Designing a Safer Woman Project

Designing a Safer Woman

hers projects/runhers releases women’s safety guide

Oklahoma City based runhers, a women’s lifestyle association @hersprojects, is distributing electronic versions of its Designing a Safer Woman (DSW) Prevention Guide free of charge.  The awareness guide for women is the result of identifying a significant need for a more comprehensive, educational, prevention guide that can be used by community groups, law enforcement, and individuals alike.  The guide helps women design their own personal protection plan, based on their individual lifestyle.   

Link to the complete guide may be found at: DSW_Final_V1_Dec_2016

Managing Director of the hers projects Jeffrey Kidder states, “The DSW Project concept began here in OKC after several female runners were attacked.  After a lot of research and conversations around the country with many experts in their respective fields, we concluded that this fills a large gap of knowledge for women.” Kidder continues, “Ultimately, the solution for making girls and women safe is addressing men’s violence. Community leaders, educators, media makers, and the general public need to address this problem because too often, gender violence starts as early as elementary school as sexual harassment and escalates as male perpetrators age.  Ideally, we collectively must focus on designing a less violent man.  However, while we are addressing this issue, we need to help women learn ways to minimize the risk of attack to the extent we can and/or engaging in unhealthy relationships.”  Our project director Jessi Cargill host clinics and educational programs to groups, organizations and individuals.
