Women’s Day 2020 should be seen as a rallying point, to remind every South African to do more to keep women safe.
Charnel Hattingh, National Marketing and Communications Manager at Fidelity ADT, says she believes a good place to start in keeping women safe is to follow some basic safety tips.
“Being distracted makes you a soft target. Criminals are always on the lookout for soft or vulnerable targets, and will take advantage if you are not paying attention to your surroundings. Being aware of potential threats is the first and most effective line of defence for anyone,” she says
There are other tips to follow as well, Hattingh adds:
“Talk to your loved ones about these tips. By sharing it and by working with the brave men and women of our law enforcement and security partners, we can make a difference and make the world safer for our women,” Hattingh concludes.
