In the next four days, female members of the Ohio National Guard will teach women in Serbia’s southern town of Vranje how to defend themselves, N1 reported.
During self-defence classes, women from Vranje's Safe House and a group from the SOS phone line for support and help to the victims of domestic violence will learn the basic movements and skills to fight off an attacker.
The Ohio National Guard women talked about a fight they had for gender equality.
“I’ve been in the army for 13 years. When I came, there were only three women. It was a good old boys system. That’s why I had to work harder than men. It was difficult to be accepted as a woman. But during the years, things eventually changed – we ‘conquer’ them with intelligence, hard work. And we can do many things better than men,” Kayla Mickey from the Guard said.
