Handbags - Secret Weapons?

I realize that using fashion as a weapon does not remove the need for violence, but if a woman is subjected to that, she needs to know she's got something up her sleeve to defend herself. The photo is a Valentino handbag and it's posted on PurseBlog, a fashion blog. While this particular brand might not be a viable option for low income communities, there are many that don't have to cost the world and there are also many other fashion items which can double as secret weapons in the case of emergency.
