The need for self protection has become a vital part of our existence due to an increase in attacks and sexual assaults within our communities.

Women Safe was founded two years ago by Paul Marasco and Peter Sciarra who strongly believe in helping women lead safer lives and equip them with necessary skills to both prevent an assault from happening and to handle an assault if the need arises.

The Women Safe program is based in Melbourne and implemented Australia wide in High Schools, Corporate Institutions and available monthly to the public in areas throughout Melbourne
