I probably have already said this, and this is really biased (I suck) , but if you want to take a martial art then take it! To be good at self defense doesn't mean you have to take the deadliest martial art, or the hardest. Doing any martial art truly helps you learn something. I'm absolutely sure (not) that if you do any martial art, you will come out of it being stronger.
There is some martial arts better for street defense than others, but all martial arts will help you somehow. Somehow, but sometimes not really fights. I do TKD, and I've never gotten in to a fight (physical at least) but that's good. Martial arts prepare you for bad things, even if they haven't happened yet.
A good saying is, better safe than sorry
