101 Weapons for Women: Implement Weaponry: A Unique Concept in Women’s Self-Defense
by Rodney R Rice
Thank you, submitter, for another look at women’s self-defense. This one does have some good advice, but it’s a little out of date. Who has a banana clip in their purse? A computer disk? A cactus?

This was re-released in 1987. With cell phones and car alarms, I think self-defense books in public libraries should be more up to date than this. Please weed!
