Use of Technology For Women’s Safety


This weeks #Sayftychat topic was Use of Technology For Women’s Safety.

About the Guest: Elsa DSilva (@pinthecreep) from Safecity. Safecity is a platform that documents personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data which maybe anonymous, gets aggregated as hot spots on a map indicating trends at a local level.
