How to Protect Yourself Against an Attacker

From August 14, 1991: Oprah talks to personal safety experts and survivors who demonstrate and discuss how people can protect themselves against attackers. They share the most common mistakes people make and discuss what not to do with an attacker. They also explain why fighting back is a personal choice that only you can make, why fighting until “you’re safe” is important and how to say, “No!” Experts include Jean O’Neal, who at the time was the research director of the National Crime Prevention Council, J.J. Bittenbinder, who served 20 years on the San Diego Police Department and is the founder of the Strong Defense Organization, Terri Treas, who was a spokesperson and graduate of IMPACT, and Lisa Gaeta, founder and CEO at IMPACT.
