HarassMap
is investigating how technologies can ‘crowdsource’ sexual harassment, to help women and girls in Egypt who are sexually harrassed or assaulted. Women in Cairo can now use their mobile phones to report catcalls, stalking, and assaults. HarassMap displays these reports on a searchable map, identifying hotspots where extra caution and police protection are needed.
