As a single woman in today's world, I feel that it is necessary for me to carry a tool to protect myself against a predator or an attacker. My tool of choice is a stun gun. I have only had to use it once so far, but feel better about going out at night because I know that I have a defense in place.

Anything is better than nothing. You would do better to invest the time and effort into learning a martial art. Any weapon is only effective if you can get to it, and use it, before the attacker can get to you. Hands and feet are always ready. A bottle of Mace may be buried in your bag, batteries in your stun gun may be dead, etc. If you must depend on weapons, have many. A sharpened bamboo chopstick worn in your hair is a good one.
