Safecity is a platform that crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data can be anonymous and it gets aggregated as hot spots on a map indicating trends at a local level. The idea is to make this data useful for individuals, local communities and local administration to identify factors that causes behavior that leads to violence and work on strategies for solutions.
Safecity aims to make cities safer by encouraging equal access to public spaces for everyone especially women, through the use of crowdsourced data and technology. However, Safecity only provides a platform to collect and aggregate data of reported abuse and has no association with the legal entities. People have to contact the local police and follow the legal process to file a report. This platform does not replace or substitute what is required by law.
