PRESS RELEASE: Women On Guard™ Donates Pepper Spray to the YWCA of Greater Memphis in Tennessee. donated pepper spray to the YWCA of Greater Memphis. The Tennessee association strives to create opportunities for women’s growth, leadership and power.

Pompano Beach, FL, November 9, 2009., a website that sells non lethal, self defense products, continues to donate pepper spray to women’s crisis centers or similar causes, throughout the country. The YWCA of Greater Memphis is the 19th recipient to receive pepper spray from Women On Guard™, which started this donation process back in 2007. The women owned website sells self defense products such as Mace, pepper spray, stun guns, Tasers and personal alarms. It has safety tips, a blog and hotlines for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Since May 23, 1919, the YWCA of Greater Memphis has been providing mission-driven programs in the Greater Memphis area. It is a women’s membership movement that is strengthened by diversity. The association draws together members who strive to create opportunities for women’s growth, leadership and power in order to attain a common vision: peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people. The association will thrust its collective power toward the elimination of racism wherever it exists and by any means necessary.

Memphis, Tennessee is just like most cities in this country, where women are victims of violent crime, stated Susan Eaton, co-owner of Women On Guard™. Rape and domestic violence are occurring in epidemic proportions, not just in our country but abroad too. It seems like it is a never-ending problem, especially for women. It is no surprise that many women have chosen to take matters into their own hands and are starting to defend themselves, either through self defense classes or self defense products. Most women don’t want to add to crime statistics, so they choose a less lethal means to defend themselves against attackers.

Events such as the recent gang rape of the Richmond High School girl in California and the discovery of 11 female bodies found in Anthony Sowell’s home in Ohio, are perfect examples of what we need to change in our society. Women On Guard™ owners strive to empower women and men by arming them with self defense products that protect individuals from violent crimes at home, work or anywhere they might be.
