Recently I read an article by Gaye Levy from Backdoor Survival, and in it she makes an interesting point: The vast majority of survival books and articles seem to assume that the person preparing is a man, or is at least part of a family with a man. But as she says, that is not always the case. To help remedy this, she decided to write a prepping article for women living alone.
Of course, the strategies in this article apply to men as well, but she focuses on skills that women traditionally don’t know much about: security, weapons, tools, mechanics, and so forth. This article is full of great tips and worth sharing with any women in your life, whether they’re living alone or not.
Gaye writes, “Most preparedness information out there seems to assume that everyone is part of a family with a mom, a dad, three kids, and a dog. Or, if not that, an extended family that includes brothers, uncles, and a grand-pappy. Somehow, the picture presented always includes a man.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
