According to Kat Alexander, more than 1/3 of all women have been abused violently. Alexander, who has had several traumatizing experiences herself, created a safety device to address this issue.
Siren is a large, jeweled ring that Alexander calls “more than a wearable.” It features a piercing alarm that causes physical distress when aimed at a target. The alarm goes off within a matter of seconds of pressing the trigger.
Offered in both silver and goldish copper, the ring is presently somewhat chunky, but Alexander plans to downsize future versions. Still, it is the only alarm system the size of a bottle cap, and most importantly it allows women to act alone without third party assistance.
