Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Safecity is an online platform where women report personal experiences of sexual violence in public spaces. The website takes these crowd-sourced reports and maps them to show where the “hotspots” are for harassment against women. The site’s motto: “Pin the creeps.”
In just three years, women across India have documented 7,500 disturbing experiences: staring, whistling, touching, stalking and rape. The platform also allows women to cite locations that are potential danger spots — areas with poor or no lighting or where crowds of men or boys hang around. Pinpointing danger zones not only helps to identify places that should be avoided, but also begins to provide data that can lead to interventions towards safer cities.
