Damsel in Defense, a company that sells self-defense products to women, was founded in 2011 by Mindy Lin and Bethany Hughes. Nearly 2 million women are assaulted in the United States every single year. According to the CDC, nearly 1 in 5 women report having been raped in their lifetime. Damsel in Defense’s goal is to keep women safe and give them the tools they need to defend themselves. Faces of Hope looks forward to growing our relationship with Damsel in Defense in the years to come.
