KINGSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. (, producers of personal protection systems for police officers and citizens, announces support for a new non-profit organization called STOP AOW (ASSAULTS ON WOMEN) (

STOP AOW (ASSAULTS ON WOMEN), headquartered in Kingston, Massachusetts, is dedicated to providing education awareness in preventing assaults on women.

STOP AOW sells t-shirts, bumper stickers, and easy-to-use products that protect women from attacks and assaults by unknown assailants. Information and classes are free and offer women an opportunity to learn how to defend themselves against sudden attack, and how to use products like Lightning Strike™ to momentarily distract and disorient an attacker.

Self-help classes taught by experienced, professional police officers are offered. The combination of knowing how to distract and disorient an attacker and use non-lethal tools is very valuable to all urban and suburban women. For more information visit the website:

According to Glenn Bushee, President of Brite Strike® Technologies, Inc., "Our new Lightning Strike™ Personal Protection System is a seven piece personal protection system designed for private citizens. Lightning Strike™ is a small, high-intensity tactical flashlight 'strobe' with a separate ear-piecing, throbbing sound personal protection alarm that will further distract and disorient an attacker. Small enough to be clipped to a woman's handbag or student backpack, it is ideal personal protection for anyone alone at night in a high-risk area."

The system includes a, slim, 4-inch, powerful tactical flashlight projecting a high-intensity light to momentarily distract and disorient an attacker. Whereas the average flashlight emits around 15 lumens, the Lightning Strike™ series reaches 65 lumens. A unique, key chain-sized, ear-splitting audio (100 dB) personal alarm, batteries, leather holster, and carry straps complete the system.

"In field tests, we have determined that the combination of a high-intensity light, coupled with an audible alarm emitting sound levels nearly at the level of human tolerance, disorients and distracts any attacker," Mr. Bushee said.
