Effectiveness of handheld stun guns

Recently incidents in our neighborhood have caused my wife to develop a moderate, and reasonable, concern for her safety. However, my wife, also known as 'She who despises all firearms in any way, shape, or form' absolutely refuses to learn how to use a firearm. So we're looking into alternative methods.

She's not particularly interested in pepper spray, despite the information I've shown her. However, she is willing to carry a handheld contact stun gun. I've heard stories that the effectiveness of a handheld stungun is 'sub par'.

Are handheld stunners in any way effective?

9mm. Because no matter how you try to rationalize it, .45 ACP is still for people trying to compensate for -something-.
