#Try putting up a fight if the attacker approaches you empty-handed. Many rapists think that they can simply overpower a victim and have their way with them. They are arrogant, but they are also wrong. The more you put up a fight, the better chances your attacker will give up and look for an easier target. Don't make yourself an easy target. Try using anything at your disposal to defend yourself — things everyone has, such as nails and fists, or everyday objects, such as umbrellas and rocks, to ward off the attacker.[[Image:Win-a-Fight-Against-a-Bully-Step-12.jpg|center]]

#*The good news is that, as late as 2001, only 11% of would-be rapists used a weapon during the attempted rape.<ref>https://ift.tt/3aocLh2> That means 9 out of 10 rapists had no more natural defense than you likely do. Carrying out a rape with a weapon means a lot more prison time.

#Use pepper spray — or the threat of it — to deter your attacker. If you've got [[Make Pepper Spray|pepper spray]] handy, take it out and hold it out at arm's length, aiming for the attacker's eyes while shouting "I've got pepper spray! I'll use it if I need to!" If you don't have any pepper spray, you can try putting your hand in your bag and yelling the same threat — "I've got pepper spray! I'll use it if I need to!" — trying to outsmart the would-be attacker. Any rapist who's been stung by pepper spray before is very likely to think twice before assaulting you.[[Image:Break-Up-a-Fight-Between-Two-People-Step-17.jpg|center]]

#If you suspect a rapist is following you, don't be afraid to tell them you'll fight back. An informal sampling of rapists in prison found that many would leave a target alone if she threatened to fight back. Say "Stay away! I will fight back if you get closer!" Rapists are looking for easy targets; people talking on their phones while walking, rifling through their bags, etc. If you show them you won't go down without a fight, you could scare them off.
