According to IndieGoGo, the small device is on a big mission: to protect women from physical assaults at the touch of a button.
The creators of this genius accessory worked with the police, self-defense professionals, and technicians to create a small, compact gadget with a big job. Bonus, you get the comfort of feeling safe in a fashionable piece of jewelry.
Built to decrease violence against women, this little gadget is so much more than a necklace. At the size of a half dollar and weighing only an ounce, just wait till you hear how this discreet charm works.
The little device, aptly named Athena, looks almost like a charm on a necklace, and can be worn as such. You can also clip it to your purse or belt buckle. Regardless of where you wear it, the safety feature remains the same.
There is also a silent version in the works. This version would notify your pre-selected contacts without setting off a loud alarm, in case you are in need of a more subtle getaway.

"One in four women on a college campus will be sexually assaulted. One in five women has been a victim of rape or attempted rape. This is unacceptable, and ROAR is focused on developing solutions to help make a difference. We want to redefine the status quo - and believe that it’s possible," according to the IndieGoGo.
The stats are unacceptable, and the mission is clear. This incredible product is set to ship Spring of 2016.
