    Defence lessons for homeless women

    YOUNG homeless women in Adelaide are being taught self-defence in a program seeking to protect them from sexual assault and other crimes.

    "Being homeless puts them in often risky situations and locations, many have drug and alcohol issues which add to their vulnerability, and they often suffer low self-esteem," she said.

    "As a result, they can end up blaming themselves or feeling acute anger and distress, and that can lead to self-harm, lashing out and other destructive behaviour," she said.

    Cost effective I guess. It'll only cost them 5% of what it would cost to give homeless men the same help.
