EP. 218 — How to Defend Yourself with Evy Poumpouras

Join Jameela LIVE on stage from New York this week as she sits down with former US. Secret Service Special Agent and current TV host and author Evy Poumpouras for a unique fireside chat about women’s safety. As we’ve heard recently on social media, many people would rather be in the forest with a bear vs. a man, and knowing that 4.8 million women in the United States alone fall victim to physical assault and rape each year, learning self-defense techniques and what to do in tricky situations can be so empowering. Jameela, the I Weigh Community and Well+Good came together for this event to inspire women to take back their power, and walk together.
