2016 Systers Pass It On Award Winner
Project: Solidarity of Systers
Solidarity of Systers is a web application that provides a common place for women who have been subjected to a crime. This is a platform for women to share their stories anonymously without feeling the stigma of being a victim in order to seek the support they need. This platform also helps women get connected to organizations that can assist in filing court cases on their behalf. There will be legal assistance available through SMS, voicemail, or the web when requested.
“Many women who have been stigmatized feel as though they are transforming from a whole person to a tainted one,” Khushbu explained. “They feel different and devalued by others. We can have a common place where we can ask a set of questions to her once she will answer that we can send the set to all the concerned people.”
