One of the most important resources any woman can have in her Go Bag is her arsenal. On a daily basis, in non-apocalyptic settings, the arsenal is as varied as the woman who wields it.
While a given situation determines the weapons, there will be overlap. A night out: keys, a nail file or emery board, polish, small clippers, hair spray, a brush or comb, lip gloss, cash, an ID, and cleavage. A day at the office: keys, nail file or emery board, polish, nail clippers, hair spray, a brush or comb, lip gloss, cash, laptop, and ID badge.
The clever woman will use this overlap to her advantage.
Keys: They start your car and let you into your home. In a pinch they can make your punch devastating.
Nail file: If you forgo the emery board, you can keep your nails looking tip-top and take out an eye or puncture a jugular. Additionally, this little beauty tool can be used as a makeshift knife.
Nail polish: Lacquer gives your nails that glossy gorgeous sheen, but it’s also a great adhesive that will help keep ropes from fraying. In eyes, it stings and burns.
Nail clippers: While not as devastating in a hand-to-hand combat scenario, nail clippers could help distract a (living) assailant if applied correctly.
Hair spray: Take a look at the warning label on your can. Whether it’s aerosol or not, the manufacturer demands that you do not use it near an open flame. Add a lighter, and you have a flame thrower. (Warning: DO NOT use on zombies!)
Don't just flail about! Even your bag can be used as a weapon if needs be. When swung like a mace, a structured purse could be deadly.
