Rape and harassment are very big problems in modern day. Sadly, it’s improbable that this kind of assault will be fully eradicated, so it’s very important to make sure that people feel safe when they leave their houses or go out in public. There is a project going on to create anti-rape wear- confidence and protection that can be worn. The product currently has prototypes of three varieties: spandex-like/running shorts that can be worn freely or hidden under clothing, cropped leggings, and khaki-style shorts. The material is cut and tear resistant, and the button that holds them on only comes open by a special doe that is easy for the person to remember, but not for a potential rapist. Only the person wearing it can take it off. As you know, rape is a very big issue that centers around misogyny and women’s (and men’s) need for rights to their own body. You can watch the video on how it works here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ar-wear-confidence-protection-that-can-be-worn
This project needs $50,000 by November 22, otherwise it will be shut down and the products will not be created. We need your help- the link shown above also has places to donate. Please signal boost this. Everyone has the right to protect themselves from inappropriate advances.
