It maps out incidents across India and the rest of the world.
A community-based platform is helping women document and map out incidents of sexual harassment, and it just received a major investment to continue its work. SafeCity, which was founded after the horrific 2012 gang rape of a student on a South Delhi bus, allows users to “pin the creeps” and report their experiences of assault anonymously. Although their current focus is on India, the organization has been receiving responses from all over the world. Each contribution is geo-tagged and placed on an interactive map. Founder Elsa D’Silva says she hopes the website will provide a more accurate representation of how frequently incidents of sexual harassment and assault occur on a geographic basis.
