Abstract/ Summary

The Public Safety Department at the University of Maine offers a free women's self defense workshop open to all members of the campus community and the general public.

“For most women, fighting back is not an option,” says Deborah Mitchell, crime prevention officer with Public Safety. “What we're trying to do with this class is empower women and give them that option.”
