"Armed & Female - Taking Control" by Paxton Quigley is highly recommended reading for women who are interested in self-defense and personal safety. Even if you are a woman that does not own a handgun, this book provides information on awareness and ideas to make your home or apartment more secure. The goal is to be safe and not a victim.
Paxton Quigley will tell you that at one time, she was a pacifist, until the night her friend called her to take her to the hospital.
In Quigley's own words: '' a friend phoned and tearfully told me she had been followed home, attacked and viciously raped by a predator. As I drove her to a hospital I learned that she'd had several opportunities during the ordeal to defend herself ' if only she'd had something to defend herself with. But she didn't ' no self-defense spray, no mini-baton, and no gun.
Her condition was so horrendous that right then and there, I made up my mind ' this was NOT EVER going to happen to me. What followed for me was a journey of discovery, training (at dozens of the top self-defense and lethal weapons programs), enlightenment and sharing that fulfilled my own needs for security. I also saw that I had to become a national advocate of the concept that WOMEN CAN AND MUST TAKE ACTION TO BETTER THEIR LIVES.'
