One in four college women will be the victim of sexual assault during her academic career.

So this may be a great time for girls graduating from high school to sign up for self-defense classes.

    I agree everyone needs to learn self-defense.

    There should also be classes on what not to do to put yourself in a bad situation. There are predators out there, don’t make yourself easy prey.
