Canning as I have mentioned (thank you Napolean) as well as smoking of meats. When I 1st moved out here there was no electricity so we dug a food-safe pit. Deep earth will maintain 69 degrees. It was a bitch digging too as it is all rock here. Thank God I did it when I was young.

10 Tips for Female Preppers

March 18, 2020 by Diane Vuković
There are a lot of strong, competent female preppers out there. But, let’s face it: most of the voices and advice in the prepping community comes from men. So, I thought it was time that I address prepping from a woman’s viewpoint. Here are my top 10 tips for female preppers!

1. Being a Woman Doesn’t Make You Inherently Weaker

As Skylar talks about in her article about the mindset of a single female prepper, there is a bias saying that women can only be competent if they become “Rambo-esque” or “one of the guys.”

There is no reason you should have to mimic the guys in order to be strong. True, women might not have as much muscle mass or strength on average as men, but we have a lot of other strengths which can be exploited for survival.

If you want to be prepared as a female, then the first thing you need to do is get your mentality straight! Do things your way and not the way the boys say you should.

The Most Sensible Disaster Prepping Book You’ll Ever Read?

In Disaster Preparedness for Women, Diane Vuković takes a refreshingly level-headed approach to prepping specifically geared towards women.

2. Time to Upgrade Your Menstrual Hygiene

Okay, here’s a topic that no male prepper wants to talk about! We need to talk about menstrual health or we won’t be able to prepare for it.

One option is to stockpile tons of tampons or pads. That means a lot of expense and a lot of space. Instead, maybe it is time to get started with a menstrual cup.

A menstrual cup (Amazon link) is a reusable silicon cup that is inserted into your vagina to collect blood. It is proven to be safer than tampons (which come with a risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome) and works really well. The best thing is that one menstrual cup lasts about 5 years! The cup doesn’t take up much space either, so you just need one item for all of your menstrual hygiene preps.

Recommended Reading: Femine Hygiene In a Disaster Scenario

3. Take a Self Defense Class

Females are often seen as easy targets because they are perceived as weak. Show attackers that they are wrong by destroying them with a strong blow to the vagus nerve or a Krav Maga groin kick! Make sure that the self defense class is specifically tailored to women. You’ll probably make some new friends there too!

Recommended Reading: Quick and Dirty Self Defense

4. Practice Emergency Conditioning

This is something that all preppers should be doing, not just female preppers. Emergency conditioning is a mental training technique in which you visualize a disaster situation in great detail. The exercise helps trick your brain into thinking that you’ve already gone through the ordeal and you’ll better respond if it does occur. You can read more about mental training techniques here.

5. Put Some Boots in Your Get Home Bag

A Get Home Bag is similar to the Bug Out Bag. However, the GHB is meant to help you get home during a disaster situation. For example, if a disaster struck while you were at work, the GHB would have everything you need to get home quickly and safely.

If you often wear heels or dress shoes when out, then you better have some boots in your Get Home Bag! Do you really want to run through rioting mobs or piles or burning rubble in your heels?

See here for some advice on the best survival boots for women

6. Get In Shape

Don’t wait until SHTF to get in shape! Fitness isn’t just about being able to handle Bugging Out in the wilderness and all of the trekking you might have to do. You’ll need to be fit to handle the stress which comes with a disaster, the lack of food (you can’t always rely on your food preps), and situations that might require strength such as hauling items you’ve scavenged or climbing over walls. So start getting in shape now instead of later! Read more on prepper fitness.

7. Cut the Weight from Your Bug Out Bag

A backpacking rule is that your pack should not weigh more than 20% of your bodyweight. So, if you weigh 140 pounds, your pack should not weigh more than 28 pounds.

Ideally, your Bug Out Bag should be even lighter. The 20% rule is okay for avoiding back pain when trekking long distances, but it isn’t suitable for situations when you might have to run with your pack in disaster situations! Read this post about how to cut weight from your Bug Out Bag.

8. Learn to Be Alone

There are lots of single female preppers who live alone. But there are also plenty of women who have never really been alone. We women tend to be surrounded by our spouses, children, friends and coworkers.

Having a strong support network is important, but it is also important to learn to be by yourself. Spending time alone actually one of the best ways to build mental toughness. So start doing things by yourself – like planning a weekend getaway all by yourself!

9. Embrace Your Feminine Side

I love reading survival stories and one of the most shocking things that I heard was about how women survived the Siege of Sarajevo during the 4-year Bosnian War. Whenever there was a bit of extra water or the electricity would go on, the women would go to the hair salon to beautify themselves. They even held a beauty contest with the contestants holding a banner reading “Don’t Let Them Kill Us.”

Mental survival is just as important as physical survival. So go ahead and stockpile something that makes you feel good as a woman. Depending on your style, it might mean having a hairbrush in your Bug Out Bag or some stockpiles of your favorite face cream at home.

10. Meet Other Female Preppers

The prepper community can feel a lot like a Boys’ Club at times. Aside from the occasional post about “survival uses for tampons” or something similar, you rarely hear prepping talked about from a female perspective.

This can be very isolating. And when you feel isolated, you won’t get the encouragement and support you need to continue prepping.

I recommend reaching out to other female preppers. See if there is a local preppers meeting in your area where you can meet other likeminded women or join our new female only Facebook group.

Are you a female prepper? What tips can you share with other women? Let us know in the comments or join us in our new female only Facebook group!

If you stock up on those yard/pathway solar lights you will be very happy when the power goes out.

They can be brought inside for the evening to light up your house. Put them back outside to charge during the day.

That is a good idea about the solar path lights. After our ice storm in 1996 that took out our power, I installed 2 RV propane lights indoors. One at the top of the stairs + one above the cooktop. I cook with gas. One can still see to not fall down the stairs + can cook in a good light.

That's a good tip. I had a friend that worked for Monkey Wards as a service tech years ago + he said that so many folks buy into the myth of turning off your power when you go on summer vacation. You can imagine the rest. As to the water in the freezer bowl, I have another related concerning folks that have an overspending habit. Put your credit card in the water bowl then freeze it. When you see something you just HAVE to have, wait until the ice thaws, if you still are adamant then buy it. It helps with that impulse shopping
