Em­pow­er­ing women with the con­fi­dence to de­fend them­selves

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

A se­ries of work­shops are be­ing or­gan­ised in Malta aimed specif­i­cally at women. The one-day cour­ses have been de­vel­oped as a re­sponse to the va­ri­ety of ever in­creas­ing risks that the mod­ern world presents. The aim is to ed­u­cate and train women in their own abil­ity to de­fend them­selves by stay­ing aware and avoid­ing con­fronta­tion through com­mon sense and con­fi­dence.

“Con­fi­dence in your own abil­ity to de­fend your­self comes with ed­u­cat­ing your­self about it, and is a mas­sive ad­van­tage when in an un­safe sit­u­a­tion.” These were the words of top US fash­ion model Gigi Ha­did, quoted in Grazia Mid­dle East, fol­low­ing an un­so­licited as­sault at Mi­lan Fash­ion Week in Septem­ber.

The Malta based com­pany or­gan­is­ing the work­shop, EQUIPP, is a train­ing and con­sul­tancy or­gan­i­sa­tion that spe­cialises in ser­vices re­lated to per­sonal and travel safety.

Spread over one full day, the cour­ses are made up of var­i­ous mod­ules that cover ev­ery­thing from iden­ti­fy­ing a prob­lem­atic sit­u­a­tion to how to en­sure per­sonal safety. The knowl­edge gained can be ap­plied in any sit­u­a­tion faced dur­ing day to day life.

The first course will take place on 19th Novem­ber and spe­cial prices are avail­able for early book­ers and group book­ings.
