Very good article. I would like to add the following tips to it:
Women travelling alone should avoid carrying bags that are easy to snatch of you. If you need your bag, try to wrap it around you rather than carrying it on your side.
If you find yourself in a situation where a thief tries to snatch your bag away from you, let it go rather than try to hold on to it and risk more serious assault.
Enjoy your travels.
