Talking Transport Transformation: Keeping women safe with Elsa Marie D’Silva
Today we will have a chat with Elsa Marie D’Silva from India. She created an app that enables women to identify and avoid sexual violence hotspots in their cities. Feeling comfortable and safe is a precondition for people, especially women, to use public transport. Elsa gives women the possibility to anonymously report incidents which then are published on the safecity.in website. The map is the largest crowd-sourced map showing sexual violence hotspots in India, Kenya, Cameroon, Nigeria and Nepal.
