Power For Women is a group that believes in giving women the skills and strategies for increasing their power to move through the world. In addition to practical self-defense skills against sexual harassment and assault, we believe there are many areas of daily life which women could use skills and information to better protect their interests. Through its self-defense classes, workshops, and demonstrations, Power For Women equips women and girls with the knowledge that is essential in these times. And Power for Women classes are for women only, taught by women only.

Arrange a class, workshop or demo for your workplace or friends. Call 312-957-0195 and talk to Anne Mary or Allison. Power for Women travels, and our prices are reasonable.

If you shop online, you can donate to Power for Women and it won't cost you a cent. iGive is an internet site with links to over 700 on-line vendors, from Amazon to Zazzle, eBay to HSN and QVC. You register at iGive, identify Power for Women as the donation recipient, and shop at any of iGive’s store. Then the store donates a portion of the sale price to Power for Women. This does not increase the cost to you at all! Use this link to register at iGive.

News and Notes

We will not be presenting public self defense workshops or classes for the next few months. However, if a company or organization would like to arrange a workshop for employees or members, that can be arranged. Please call Anne Mary or Allison at 312-957-0195.
