|What is WPSN?

else who intersects their lives. This site will evolve to include crime prevention tips on topics including those indicated
by the pictures on this page, current events that impact women's lives, phone numbers that could improve or even
save your life.
|Why do we need a site like WPSN?
the local shopping center, or going to the laundry room, women continue to place themselves in precarious situations
simply because their do not have the knowledge that can aid them in making wise decisions. Too often women
simply do not know what to do when potentially dangerous situations arise or what number to call for help or
information. It is intended that this website will provide this information - all in one place.
|Can WPSN Provide a Solution?

prevention tips that will help you reduce your risk and that you share this information with your friends, family, co-
workers, and any strangers you meet during your day. As this site evolves, we will include products that you can use
increase your knowledge and safety. Our hope is that the information provided by WPSN will help develop real
solutions to the universal disease of violence against women.
