If you or someone you know needs help, domestic abuse resources are available from the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE or 1-800-799-7233 for TTY, or if you’re unable to speak safely, you can log onto thehotline.org or text LOVEIS to 22522.
While domestic violence has been on the rise during COVID, there are some products that can help you discreetly communicate your whereabouts to family and friends -- or even the police if you're in trouble.
InvisiWear makes smart jewelry designed to keep you safe. You can choose from necklaces, bracelets, hair-ties, and subtle keychains, which are paired with an app on your phone linked to 5 contacts that would be alerted in case of emergency. Just press your device twice to send an immediate and silent SOS to send your coordinates to your preselected contacts and with 9-1-1.
The sharp point of this keychain can be used against an attacker and best when applied to their pressure points, with finger grooves for easy holding. The sharp head can also be used to break windshield glass if you're trapped in a car.
Good for women, as well as kids and the elderly, this small but powerful device can alert loved ones to your whereabouts.
