If You See A Woman Carrying This Small Black Device, This Is What It Means

October 30, 2015

It's the size of a half-dollar and it can save your life.

The device is called "Athena" and it's the brainchild of some inventors who are now crowdfunding to take their invention to market.

Here's how it works:

If a person being attacked presses the button on "Athena," it sends out an alarm the company boasts is "louder than a freight train," while also transmitting an SOS signal that goes out to the cell phones of friends and family.

The signal then pinpoints your location and suggests the recipients of the message contact police.

The company behind the invention, Roar For Good, has already raised more than 200% of its $40,000 crowdfunding goal.

The recessed button prevents accidental triggering, and it must be held for three seconds

The inventors say the device is empowering without having to carry a weapon:

"Women should not need to alter their lifestyle, modify their behavior, or carry self-defense devices to protect themselves. Our goal is to help create a society where that is a reality."
