The Chelmsford, Essex-based firm sells fashionable safety alarms and other gadgets to protect girls, women and teens on the streets. Gold – who is also the boss of undies chain Knickerbox – called the online retailing business a “great idea”.
Safe Girl was set up by Andrea Clark, a mother of four girls, who wanted to do her bit to protect her children and to raise awareness of women’s safety issues generally. “It’s great to be recognised by such a high profile figure as Jacqueline Gold and to win a #WOW award,” she said.
“We’ve had so much public support for the work we are doing to help make women feel safer both on the streets and at home.” She added: “We want to make women more aware of the dangers they face when out and about, whether that’s walking back from the pub at night or coming home from work. And, after suffering physical and emotional trauma myself at the hands of an abusive partner, I also want to highlight the insidious nature of domestic violence in the home too.”
Gold – whose father David Gold is the co-owner of West Ham United football club – is passionate about supporting other women in business. She launched the Women On Wednesday, or #WOW, awards three years ago to recognise new business ideas and talent.
