It's been a while since my introduction post...busy times here at Mappsafe with our app finally ready for alpha testing. If anyone, who has android smart phone, wants to be our 'test bunny' we would love to have you on board. Please let me know in the comments.
Today, I wanted to share with you results of our survey. We surveyed women in Melbourne about how safe they feel in public places. Results surprised us. 90% of women said that there have repeatedly felt unsafe or uncomfortable in public places. What's surprising is that we live in a city that has been in last few years 3 times voted as the most liveable city.
If women in Melbourne feel unsafe in public places, one can only imaging how women around the world feel.
Another important finding was that 46% of women did not share their experience with anyone, even though they felt that sharing such information would help raise awareness and improve policing.

The good news was that 56% said that they would use Mappsafe, to share public safety information and inform themselves and others about smarter choices of their movements. This really gave us further strength and energy to keep on pushing forward with our project.
We have since decided to run a global survey on women's safety. If you would like to share your experience and opinion, we would love to hear from you. Here is a link to take part in the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7NR7KNG
