Wen-Do is a form of self-defence for women developed by Ned and Ann Paige, a married couple from Toronto, Ontario. Dr. Paige, an optometrist, dedicated himself to creating a program to teach women to protect themselves after hearing of the murder of Kitty Genovese in New York on March 13, 1964.
Ned and Anne were practitioners of jujutsu, karate and judo. However, through the years as many more women took up Wen-Do, various techniques were shared and added to the system.
The name combines a contraction of the word women with the Japanese word Do, meaning "way". Though the base and concepts of Wen-Do come from martial arts, Wen-Do is not considered one by its adherents.

Wen-Do classes focus on scenarios that often confront women, such as rape and domestic attacks. Classes do not involve any physical contact unless a student is ready and wants to. The system also encompasses feminist and empowering discussion about issues that face women and violence in contemporary society.
