A nifty gadget has been invented so women can pick up their cellphone and say “Something bad happened” without needing to call a friend first.
Whether it’s a dodgy suitor or a more dangerous threat, the Guardian Angel is designed as the perfect escape route for women in an uncomfortable situation. The device features a special button that, when activated, makes a call is to the wearer’s mobile device, allowing her to have an excuse to walk away from the harasser in a shared space such as an office or a bar.
Available worldwide, it is suitable for workplaces, social settings or even more potentially threatening situations.
If the wearer is particularly worried about their safety, they can hold the button for three seconds to send an SOS text message to a designated number, such as parent or a friend, to notify them that they are in danger. – Daily Mail
