As a rule, women present less physical opposition to the robber. That is why criminals may choose them as victims. Besides, they are the ones suffering almost all sexual attacks made against adults. Therefore, they must be aware of the vulnerability present in the following situations:
- When entering or leaving doorways.
- When entering elevators.
- In basements and garages.
- In solitary and isolated areas, in vacant lots.
- In badly lit areas at night.
- When walking alone in roads; an advice is walking facing traffic.
