Hi and welcome to this website, and blog where you can read more about the campaign Fashion Against Rape and the Anti Rape-Product.
More pictures up soon.
This product was invented in 2006 as part of a school project where students were encouraged to develop new innovations. The product is developed as a supplement to the two biggest anti-rape products on the market today, the panic alarm and protective spray. For different reasons, these two products do not always protect during an attack. For example, they may lie in an inaccessible hand bag, or they may have been left at home. They are hard to use and can, in many cases, be used against the woman.
The idea of the product is that wearing the belt will make it more difficult for the rapist to remove the victim’s pants!
The product consists of two laser cut metal plates. The plates are bent and formed into an additional buckle that attaches to the outside of your ordinary belt. In order to open it, you need to use both hands and move a button through a hidden labyrinth witch, if you are not familiar with the design of the labyrinth, takes time. Some of the main features of the belt include:
This product is designed to be very difficult to open with one hand. This means the abuser cannot hold the women while trying to remove her pants.
The belt cannot be opened quickly. This gives the victim a chance to fight back, scream and use other products for protection.
Unlike other products, such as pepper spray or stun guns, this product cannot be used against the victim.
Hidden under the first layer of metal, is a labyrinth that you cannot see when the product is closed. That makes it very difficult to open the belt if you are not familiar with its layout.
Unlike a spray or an alarm, a belt is easy to remember bringing when you leave home. You don’t have to DO anything for it to help you. It’s just there, all the time.
This is me a few years a go with my product!
