MissMap is an app that informs women about the safety of establishments they may attend by providing them with reviews written by previous visitors. These reviews will also place an onus upon establishments to address their failures regarding women’s safety.
Additionally, MissMap may encourage women to speak out about their experiences, increasing the possibility to hold offenders to account. MissMap will also aid in the progress of women’s rights movements by relaying to society the prevalence of violence against women.
MissMap is the app women knew they needed and most definitely knew they wanted!
As a young woman in her 20s, Priya Lehal has taken women’s safety into her own hands and through it, MissMap was born. MissMap was inspired by Priya’s desire to advocate for women’s rights in a way that would empower women to speak up through their commitment to each other as a community.
Priya decided something had to be done when she discovered that certain reviews online regarding sexual harassment on the premises of establishments were being taken down and disregarded. This unfortunate reality is what motivated Priya to turn what initially started as a small high school project into an app that is now available to women across the world.
Discussions around women safety are happening globally. Despite these efforts, there is still a need for a global community of women, with micro-communities between local women and tourists to address the issue on a first hand basis.
