Kenyan women take the self-defense class 'I am worth defending'. With what she learned, Margaret managed to safe herself from a group of rapists. 'They took my phone, but not my dignity.'
The women hit the trainer's cushion with fierce karate kicks. They live in the Kenyan slum Korogocho, where the number of rapes is alarmingly high. Led by a professional, the women learn simple self-defense techniques so they can fight back. 'I am worth defending!' they shout at the end of the class. Margaret has proven that the classes work: she poked the eye of her attacker and managed to escape.1 Comments | Show map
