ABOUT FDPDON'T BE ALARMED. BE ON GUARD.
We believe in providing easy access to affordable, discreet solutions that level the playing field against often larger aggressors. Women should never have to feel afraid for their safety, day or night. Our non-lethal defense products provide safe solutions whether for home or work, on campus, or while exercising.
A Fort Worth, Texas based company, Female Defense Products is committed to empowering women with safety and security. The frequency of targeted assaults and attacks against women in the U.S. is staggering and unacceptable. So, we are on a mission to change the statistics.
It’s a sad fact that you can’t rely upon the police to protect you at all times, and we believe you should have the tools to secure your safety and to defend yourself if necessary. Security deters and prevents confrontation while providing peace of mind. It is especially important to ensure the security of your home, and when you have roommates (e.g. while in college) we provide solutions to secure your own bedroom in addition to your home.
HI, I’M MADISON. I’m a young entrepreneur with a passion for women’s safety & defense. In May 2016, I graduated from Texas Christian University Neeley School of Business, where I studied Entrepreneurial Management. As a college student, I found the rates at which women are attacked and assaulted, especially while in college, to be an awful injustice. So, I’ve set out to change the statistics, both by raising awareness & offering products that help to keep women safe.
No one should ever have to fear for their safety. Studies report that between 20-25% of women face sexual assault in college. And, it’s not only college years that put females at risk – in the general population, the FBI reports that there are 760,000 cases of aggravated assault against females every year in the United States. Studies also show teaching and empowering women with self defense tactics to be the most effective way to reduce sex crimes against women.
Our products provide confidence and security to women of all ages, whether for home, work, exercise or travel. As an active runner who loves dogs (I have 3!), I desire safety & proactive defense for myself whether I’m commuting, on campus, or enjoying the outdoors. My hope is to bring self-defense in a non-lethal fashion to women everywhere.
