Now the lovely ladies can fend off those miscreants, or even their favorite misogynistic Gizmodo editor with the No-Contact Jacket, part of a line of clothing-as-weapons for women.

A mere 9-volt battery keeps those creeps at bay with 80,000 volts of Taser-like electricity. Hit the switch and teach that Neanderthal to keep his hands off the merchandise. There's an insulated rubber layer between you and the hot juice, but if you scratch your head while pushing the button, well, you'll be in for a shocking experience.


This is great stuff. Just the fact that such a jacket exists will fend off would-be attackers. Bravo. Maybe there will be one for guys, too.
