An anti-rape gadget?

Via email from Anand, I discover that there’s a new product on the market: an anti-rape gadget.

I don’t understand how it would work. I’m sure women aren’t expected to wear it all the time, but only when they might get into a situation where they’re in danger. Now, if they knew that in advance, why would they get into such a situation? I’ll be interested to know how well this sells.

The best anti-rape device, in my book, is an efficient police and a swift judiciary. That isn’t enough by itself, of course, but it’s essential. And do we have one? Ha!
