INNER ARMOR: REPLACING FEAR WITH KNOWLEDGE & POWER
Inner Armor is the confidence, conviction, and competence required to keep you safe. It is based on the synergy of having the confidence that comes from knowledge and planning, the conviction that comes from eliminating all doubt and uncertainty, and the competence that comes from preparation and training. Inner Armor can be represented by a 3 Petal Plan. It is built by simultaneously developing each Petal.
Having Inner Armor means that you have replaced fear with knowledge and power. When harassed, you have the self-assurance to stand up for yourself at the time and place of your choosing. As a bystander to street harassment, you have the empathy to stand up for others who need your help. And as a member of the community, you have the motivation to make a difference in how society views and responds street harassment.
