Female traveller, are you well-prepared?
Although we have come a long way in the equality for men and women, the reality is that women are physically more vulnerable than men when they travel, and they face unique risks. There are men who target women who appear unaware, unfamiliar with their surroundings, and unlikely to fight back.

This makes good preparation and the right confident attitude essential. Every woman is aware of this. But what does this preparation include exactly and what is the best attitude? Expat Preventive composed a Female Traveler Training especially for companies with female employees who are working abroad.

What about you as a female traveller? Are you well-prepared?

How to overcome a threatening situation

"I am a Dutch champion free fighting," was the first thing that came to mind when Wendy stranded in the bush after car trouble. She realized she probably had to spend the night with her male fellow passengers. The ambiance was friendly, but she felt insecure while the men were watching her. Then she began to talk. About her victories in free fighting. And about her boyfriend, also a free fight professional, who was waiting for her at the hotel.

Wendy is a single woman and a right wing player in hockey. But the more she expanded her story, the more she felt a fighting champion herself. She was convincing the men and herself. What man would attempt doing something immoral, knowing she could knock him down easliy? The sense of threat was gone. A day later, she arrived safely at her hotel.

Women have a talent for finding creative solutions in nasty situations. During our training we teach them to have faith in their abilities. Wendy knows her strength. What would you do?
Travel safe!

Fear dies under the light

Our trainer Tatjana Stuckelschwaiger:
"There is power in stating the truth, right out loud, instead of looking down or away.

When something happens you feel uncomfortable with, you are not the one to blame. Fear, shame and guilt like to live in the shadows; they start to die under the light. 

So name it! Even if just to yourself at first. Say what is happening. Then say it out loud. Then say it loudly! Like this: This is harassment. What’s happening here is that you’re harassing me!”
