One out of three women in the world will be raped or beaten in her lifetime according to the United Nations. It is happening everywhere and nothing significant has yet been done to stop it. Women are still considered as the “weaker sex”. It is presumed that a woman needs a man beside her to protect her but Project Butterfly is positive that a woman is self-capable of protecting herself from any danger. Fight Back Women Self- Defence Workshop 2015 is an initiative to empower women and make them believe that they can protect themselves.

This workshop will be a 2-day workshop for women of all ages. Fitness instructors who are specialized in self- defence will be training the ladies on how to defend themselves from any physical and sexual threat.

Objectives:

  • Make women capable of defending themselves from various threats.
  • Create an open environment for people to talk about their issues.
  • To establish a terror free and safe environment for women.
