HarassMap is a volunteer-based initiative that launched in 2010, and is
the first independent initiative
to work on the issue of sexual harassment and assault in Egypt. We seek to
achieve our mission: ending the social acceptability of sexual harassment and
assault, by harnessing online and mobile technology to support a huge offline on-the-ground
mobilization effort, and vice versa. Our vision is to restore the Egyptian
tradition and values of safety and dignity in our streets and re-establish the
social consequences for harassers that used to exist.
