While no one likes to think about coming face-to-face with an assailant, it's best to be prepared if the unlikely were to happen. Regardless of your size and strength, there are several self-defense techniques that you can learn which could potentially be lifesaving. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Crime Clock - last updated in 2010 - a violent crime is committed once every 25 seconds in the United States. I found the numbers to be appalling, and reason enough to be prepared for a potential attack. After all, it's better to be safe than sorry. 

In the video below, YouTube user DarkMagician70 displays a self-defense technique that's designed for a specific scenario. It's a grim scenario - the woman's back is to the wall and the man has her by the throat, but watch closely as he shows you a way to evade this vicious attack. Keep in mind, this is just one particular technique and works best in the situation shown. However, it's a simple enough move that everyone ought to learn, just in case.
