What we talk about

No more nice girls - a plea for womens safety

Hi from ReadyHer, today we are speaking about it being OK to be a bit “bitchy”

In a world still permeated by outdated gender stereotypes, we are often expected to be unfailingly kind, accommodating, and pleasant. But why should we constantly wear a smile when reality often needs a different approach?

Having said that, it's time to discuss the fact that we don't always have to be nice, especially when it comes to our safety. And why is that you may ask? Because women are repeatedly targeted simply because of their gender. Picture this: men casually strolling down the street, enjoying themselves without the fear of a car pulling over, loud comments being hurled their way, or inquiries about personal plans for the night. Or another scenario, men going out to a bar for an after-work drink… no problem there, right? On the other hand, women in the same situation. I don’t even think that we must elaborate!

Unfortunately, women frequently experience unsolicited attention, unwelcome remarks, and even dangerous situations as part of their daily lives.




But here's the thing: we can take our safety into our own hands:

  • Say “NO” and leave a situation that does not feel right. If it doesn’t feel right - it probably isn’t. Don’t stay just to be nice.

  • Ladies, make eye contact when someone approaches you and show them that they can’t sneak up on you.

  • Be fierce, be confident. Let your body language speak volumes – head high, shoulder back, hands out of your pockets, ready for anything.

Women have the right to move through the world just as freely as men. Safety should not be contingent on gender stereotypes, but since it is, we must take matters in our hands and get ready to be ready. We all need to be able to live the motto: Not me. Not today.

It's time to create a culture where women are not targeted simply because of their gender. It's time for respect, equality, and, above all, safety for all women so they can live without the fear of harassment. Ladies, let your strength and confidence pave the way for change.

Smart Defense - Equipping women for real-world safety

"Smart Defense: Equipping Women for Real-World Safety"


In a reality where 1 in 4 women face sexual assault in their lifetime, the need for women's safety education is clear and urgent. At ReadyHer Self-Defense, we recognize that being educated about awareness and safety isn't just a nicety; it's a modern imperative.


Facing the Reality: A Practical Approach

Let's face the harsh truth: assaults happen, and women need practical tools to deal with them. Our seminars focus on real-world strategies that enhance the chances of not becoming a target and, more importantly, increase the odds of getting away if an attack occurs.


No Room for Obliviousness: The Power of Awareness

Being aware of one's surroundings is a fundamental part of staying safe. Women who know what's happening around them are better equipped to recognize and avoid potential threats. It's not about paranoia; it's about smart defense.


Trusting Instincts: A Quick Response System

We emphasize trusting instincts as a rapid-response system.


That gut feeling is often the first signal that something isn't right. Educated women can react swiftly, making split-second decisions that could be the difference between safety and harm.


Plan of Action: Preparedness as Empowerment

Empowerment comes from having a plan. Our seminars help women create practical strategies – from knowing safe routes to understanding how to react in different situations. Preparedness is a game-changer.


Physical Know-How: Striking Back with Confidence

Knowing where, when, and how to attack the attacker physically is a critical aspect of self-defense. Women armed with this knowledge not only feel confident in their ability to protect themselves but also in embracing their femininity without compromise.

In a world where statistics paint a grim picture, women's safety education isn't just a precaution; it's a smart, pragmatic approach to navigating the realities of life. It's about arming women with the tools and mindset to stay safe in an unpredictable world.

Empowerment in action

 At ReadyHer, we believe in the strength that is within every woman, no matter her size. 🚺


Imagine a powerful scene: a petite woman delivering a front kick to a towering figure. It's not just about the physical kick; it's about the indomitable spirit, the unwavering determination, and the unyielding mindset that fuels her actions.








Ladies, take a moment to reflect on this image – it's a testament to the idea that true strength comes from within. In life, as in self-defense, it's not about dwelling on the challenges or attacks you may face. It's about cultivating a mindset focused on what you can do, on your capabilities, and on your power to turn the tables.


Remember, it's not the size of the woman in the fight, but the size of the fight in the woman. Embrace the mindset that overcomes obstacles, and let determination be your driving force.


Stand tall, stand strong, and let readyHer be your ally in cultivating the mindset that propels you forward. Together, we rise! 1
