“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”

Marilyn Monroe spoke the famous quote in the 1958 movie version of the famous Broadway play, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”. The jewelry industry quickly took the opportunity to promote their diamond lines of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets and the line even caused engagement rings made with diamonds to become more popular. This trend led to lab-grown diamonds and other forms of mock-diamonds being created so women of all economic statuses could enjoy the beauty of the diamond. Damsel in Defense also decided that it was time for all to enjoy diamonds in a new way – in the form of protection. 

Megan, our Social Media Communications Coordinator here at Damsel in Defense, has been with us since October of 2020 and has a huge passion for the mission, loves her coworkers, and enjoys her job. She is in charge of running all social media platforms, as well as coordinating product and reel shoots. Megan works closely with our Events Coordinator, Connie, and is a large part of making sure that our large events such as Conference, Leadership, and Incentive run smoothly. On any given day, you can catch Megan rushing out the door suddenly to grab a last-minute decoration item and you can always count on her to be the first to ask if anyone wants a Starbucks. 

Spending time with family and hanging out with friends, especially at concerts, are some of Megan’s favorite things. Additionally, she also loves to travel and looks forward to seeing where she will go every year. No matter where she goes, Megan relies on her trusty and always in style Pepper Slay to be there if she were to ever need it! She loves the Pepper Slay because it is versatile, easy to use, and can be staged while keeping the aesthetic of her home.“They are also one of my favorite gifts to give, I love to figure out someone’s favorite color then get them the bling Pepper Slay to match!”. 

The fashionable Pepper Slay is a keychain carry pepper spray that has a quick-release and shoots up to 16 feet. The locking, glow-in-the-dark nozzle makes for a great option to carry at night and in your purse or bag when in a store or the car. The 3-4 second continuous stream, UV Identifying Dye, 2 million SHU and the 1.45% MC all contribute to an instant and lasting effect on an attacker. The diamond casing comes in a variety of colors to go with any aesthetic, including indigo, red, white, teal, and black!
