The large difference in numerical terms justifies the need to find forms of protection and legal protection, and the topic has strongly returned to the surface in our country when the opportunity of measures to punish 'femicide' with aggravating penalties was discussed. Not only legal solutions are being studied: there are those who do their best in other ways, like AR WEAR, an American startup that has developed a line of 'anti-aggression' clothing capable of constituting a barrier of passive resistance to any attempt to take them off or tear them off. The challenge was to make clothing that is easy to wear and at the same time 'impenetrable' when needed, even if the victim is momentarily unconscious.

AR Wear is currently seeking lenders for its invention through a popular crowdfunding Here is the presentation video:
