WomenStrength - Become a Self Defense/Empowerment Instructor for Women and Girls!
Since 1979, WomenStrength has taught holistic self defense to ~30,000 women and girls in the Portland area. WomenStrength and GirlStrength classes are designed to introduce a variety of strategies, including survival level fighting skills, to defend against sexual assault. Instructors emphasize that each threat must be assessed quickly, and empower women and girls to trust their intuition, identify risks, know their strengths, and explore options for dealing with the threat of sexual violence.
Sara Johnson, Director of WomenStrength, Carolyne Haycraft, GirlStrength Coordinator, and longtime volunteer instructors will join Bread & Roses this week to recruit and inspire women to apply for the upcoming Volunteer Instructor Training in February 2012.
