Rape is a horrifying experience one could go through. And as if that were not bad enough, society tends to put the blame on the victim. When that happens and bystanders or witnesses don’t do anything to help or stop the crime, it is time for women to take charge of their safety. There is always the option of learning martial arts so that women can fight back. There are also anti-rape devices that some inventors cared enough to create just to help women protect themselves in dire situations. Some of them can be used by women today but others are just way too impractical.
#1. Anti-rape lingerie Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE)
In 2012, a 23-year-old Delhi student was brutally gang-raped and this prompted Manisha Mohan, an aeronautical engineering student, to take action. She and two other students designed an electric bra called Society Harnessing Equipment (SHE), which can deliver 3800kv of electric shock to a rapist. The lingerie also has a GPS tracker that can alert the police or parents of the potential victim.
