HarrassMap uses crowd-sourced mapping, media outreach and volunteer activism to make cities safer for women
HarrassMap maps SMS and online reports of sexual harassment, reaches out to media to raise awareness and sends volunteers to talk to those who can influence the culture and safety within neighborhoods. There are HarassMap projects live in Yemen, Lebanon, Pakistan, Syria, Bangladesh and India, and there are projects currently in development in over 20 other countries. Awesome project!!

I love the work HarassMap is doing! They not only use online tools in an innovative way, but their work involves and empowers people as reporters and outreach volunteers within their communities. This combination of digital and real world activism is truly inspiring.
