Protect Yourself This Spring With a Stylish Personal Safety Alarm from Ila Security (Giveaway)

Taking Care of Your Family's Health and Well-being, Saints to Turn to, and the Catholic Faith

Now that warmer weather is just around the corner it is time for outdoor recreational activities like running, jogging or spending time at your favorite public park. When you are away from home with your friends or alone you want to feel safe and secure. The statistics of violence against women in the United States are alarming.

According to the Washington State Department of Health (,

” (national data) * One in three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.
(Source: Sexual Assault Experiences and Perceptions of Community Response to Sexual Assault, 2001)
* One out of every six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime.
(Source: Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)
* On average, more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States.
(Source: Family Violence Prevention Fund)
* Every nine seconds, a woman is beaten in the United States.
(Source: American Institute on Domestic Violence 2001)
* Women ages 20-34 endure the highest rates of domestic violence.
(Source: American Institute on Domestic Violence 2001)
* Only about one in five domestic violence victims with physical injuries seek professional medical treatment.
(Source: Bureau of Justice Statistics)
* Sexual violence starts very early in life. More than half of all rapes of women (54%) occur before age 18; 22% of these rapes occur before age 12.
(Source: Tjaden and Thoennes, 2000)
* Intimate partner violence is the leading cause of injury to women. It affects 1-3 million women a year in the U.S., making it more common than muggings, stranger rapes and car accidents combined.
(Source: Frisso JA et al., 1996. Tjaden P, Thoennes N, 1998)
* Domestic crime against adults accounts for almost 15% of total crime costs: over $67 billion per year.

These figures can and should change if more women are educated on self defense and arm themselves with a personal safety alarm. Ila Security has created a brand new line of stylish personal safety accessories designed to empower women so they can feel comfortable and confident while away from home or home alone.

“ila Security was launched in 2008, a joint collaboration with global communications agency BBH, whose clients include Audi, British Airways and Lynx/Axe. Its creation addresses what was a significant gap in the global market in the area of stylish female safety and personal security accessories.

A 2010 YouGov/Glamour magazine survey reveals that 68% of women are seriously concerned about their personal safety – and the same women also want to look stylish and fashionable. In response to this need, ila Security provides a must-have range of accessories that are chic, feminine and versatile.”

The Healthy Moms Magazine believes that safety is important. Health and safety go hand in hand. As moms we want to stay healthy and live to watch our children grow up. We should also protect ourselves from dangerous acts of violence. Our children need us.

As your life gets busier you may find yourself alone and in an uncomfortable situation. Maybe your job requires you to travel to an unfamiliar city or you need to run errands after dark. An Ila personal safety alarm will help you feel confident and in control. They have a wide selection of stylish alarms designed for travel, home or working out.

Women often feel uneasy at home alone, in hotels, apartments and student housing. This alarm triggers when the door is opened, emitting a piercing 130dB siren, keeping the door from being opened any further.

Not only are these devises cute they are also discreet. At first glance potential attackers may think that they are just charms, keychains or jewelry instead of personal alarms. The sounds they emit are loud and piercing and can be heard from several feet away. Ila personal alarms are also reliable with long lasting batteries. This product is a must have for busy women concerned about personal safety.
