SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Rape Crisis Center and Women's Council of Realtors invited ladies out to Kendra Scott for a safety awareness program for women.

It's designed specifically for women who travel for work, like realtors.

Those professions are considered high-risk for crimes like robbery, rape and homicide.

"We saw all kinds of women tonight who are interested in protecting themselves when they're out visiting businesses, visiting customers. It was wonderful. It was wonderful to see women being empowered,” said Women Rock! co-founder Jessica Neeley.

A portion of the proceeds from tonight's event will benefit the Rape Crisis Center.
