Your Safety Is My Business
- 1 in 5 women are survivors of rape
- A violent crime occurs every 26 seconds
- 1 in 3 women experience domestic violence
- A child is abducted every 40 seconds
I educate and sell products that empower women to defend themselves and their loved ones. It is my goal to change these statistics in any way I can. That's why your safety IS my business.
Hello, I’m Carol McClure!
I'm your Independent Damsel Pro (aka PepperChick / AVDamsel). As a wife, mom of 2 adult children, and childcare provider (27 years!) I’ve seen many of the dangers that lurk out in this crazy world and I share Damsel's mission to equip, empower and educate on personal protection & self defense for ourselves and our loved ones because I absolutely believe that it is more important now than ever to proactively safeguard ourselves and our families.
Our mission is to equip, empower and educate women to protect themselves and their families. Our Independent Damsel Pros are not only arming others and experiencing financial freedom, but also offering empowerment and healing to those affected by assault #becauseofdamsel.
