Week 2.1 Design Problem Definition

          Alright, the end of week 2 of my new design course. The course is still getting started so this week was research. It's never a bad thing to hit the books. As re-cap from last week:

My gap is: A realistic way to protect myself as a woman from criminals on a daily basis.

           First, we are borrowing from the Japanese "Toyota Way" in which to learn the truth, one must ask oneself "Why" 5-Times.

In what way might I...

better protect women  from criminals.
effectively allow a small person to fight back against an unexpected larger opponent(s). *
make society safer for women.
level the playing field for the weak.
increase work place protection.

           The refined gap is to effectively allow a smaller/weaker person to fight back against an unexpected larger opponent.

Alright, photo comes to you curtsy of Futz5 on Deviant Art. The model in the photo is Jessica May.
