Personal security is one of the things that people must not joke about. The police and paramilitary may not always be there to help one when one is in trouble, this is why one must try to help themselves in times of trouble.
One of the ways an individual could help themselves is by alerting the authorities in times of trouble. Now the question is: How can one raise an alarm conveniently and secretly to get help from security personnel without making one's attacker know?
There are various ways of raising an alarm in times of trouble, and one of such ways is whistling, but this is not a safe way of raising an alarm as the predators could easily know what you are trying to do. This is why some firms have researched and gone into the production of conveniently-worn safety devices, and one of such firms is Flare.
Sara de Zarraga and Quinn Fitzgerald the founder of Flare believe that a product like Flare shouldn’t really exist. They believe that everyone, much like the Pink Tax, also bears the burden of having to protect themselves. And the existence of such measures led to the creation of a product called Flare. They avow that the world out there has seen too many women survivors being shushed and many of them being left alone to deal with the traumatic events that occurred as a result of their safety is at risk.
Thus, Sara and Quinn decided that enough was enough; since the old safety equipment like whistles and pepper sprays were no longer effective, and when they did, they brought more harm than good. They decided that a more modern initiative was needed, and this culminated in Flare. Of course, the founders maintained that Flare never came in a day, but was rather the result of meetings and information accrued from thousands of individuals, alongside more than 4 years of research.
