Google Map of Sexual Harassment in Cairo


HarasssMap is using the Ushahidi incident reporting platform to provide a Google Map of sexual harassment incidents in Egypt.

The project has been created by volunteers with expertise in the issue of sexual harassment in Egypt and the aim is to implement a new system for reporting cases of sexual harassment via SMS messaging.

The Ushahidi platform has been used as it provides a confidential means for women to report incidents and provides a Google Map visualisation of the seriousness and prevalence of the problem.
