Let's face it: It's difficult being a woman. It's already 2021, but with the way we face slut-shaming, victim-blaming, and misogyny on what seems like a daily basis, it may as well be the 1800s. Every day on social media, I come across girls getting shamed for their choice (and length) of clothing, why they come home late at night, among many other things. They even get *blamed* when they get raped. (WHY?)
With all of those happening and more, it's no surprise that self-defense kits have gained popularity online. But since most of them are available in the US, it's kind of a hassle to get them shipped here. However, I did find one local business that offers them. Introducing: Laureola.
Laureola offers self-defense kits that come in keychains, so you can bring them with you wherever you go. They offer three sets: Striking, Blinding, and Stunning.
What are the contents of the self-defense kits?
This set contains a spray bottle (for your alcohol or pepper spray), a pointed window breaker, a safety alarm that emits a loud sound of up to 120 decibels, a multipurpose card, and a time capsule (for any emergency cash or pills). They all come together in a wristlet with a cute pompom on it.
