Lessons Learned

Lesson 1 = The goal is to escape an attack. We use a moment of distraction to get away. Mandi discusses this further in the book she wrote: “Two Things To Know About Pepper Spray: Do This First.”

Lesson 2 = We are brought up as women to always be nice. Let’s unlearn that!

Lesson 3 = If you find yourself being attacked, fight back and never give up!

Lesson 4 = Call the police right away.  

Lesson 5 = It’s never too late to report an attack or abuse.
