Dr. Sonnet Ehlers from South America invented it. Her plan was to distribute about 30,000 free ones around where the World Cup was going to be taking place and then after that, they would cost about $2 each. The doctor apparently sold her house and her car in order to fund the project, so she feels strongly about it. Ehlers said that women in Africa go to such extremes to prevent rape that sometimes they wrap razor blades in sponges and insert them inside themselves! That's horrible. Of course, critics question how well the Rape-aXe will work to prevent rapes.The woman would just stick it in when she knew she'd be in a vulnerable spot, she wouldn't have to wear it all the time. Overall, I think it's a good idea.
