The Ladies' Safety Network is a directory of women-owned self-defense and personal safety-related businesses, including firearms instruction schools, hand-to-hand combat schools, women's shelters and support groups, and more.
It's important for women to have access to mentors who understand their experiences and can offer tailored guidance and support. As a female firearms instructor, I have heard over and over from my female clients that they generally feel more comfortable training with other women. Women who share similar experiences, struggles and challenges can offer valuable insight that is specific to the female perspective, as well as foster a sense of community and belonging, which can be empowering and motivating.
Contact FAB Firearms Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or concerns regarding the directory.
