Pinning stories towards a safer city
Safecity is an online platform created to map areas of sexual abuse - ranging from comments to physical abuse and rape. All it requires is to fill a simple form about the location where the abuse occurred and the category of abuse. This gets plotted on a map and in time will create “hotspots” or unsafe areas in a city. Check out - http://www.safecity.in
I found out about Safecity through a friend who is also a founder of this project. I believe a platform like this has great potential to identify unsafe areas, issues, stories towards helping build a safer city. This can possibly be extended to sharing success stories and encouraging people towards reporting issues of what they see, hear or experience.
How can we leverage a platform like this to empower women to share more and also get attention of organizations who can help towards issues/trends emerging from this platform?
