Society has improved a lot since the past. However, there are still many issues that our society has not improved. Among those issues are problems that many modern women face such as harassment, domestic violence, and gender discrimination etc. When some women face those issues, they don't want to speak up or seek help. Some of them blame themselves for what happen to them.
In order to help women who face harassment, domestic violence, and gender discrimination etc. seek help and overcome issues, we want to introduce "Peace Finder". It is a webapp that provides virtual assistance for women's issues such as harassment, domestic violence, and gender discrimination etc.
What it does
- Peace finder is a webapp that helps women learn more about issues that they face such as harassment, domestic violence, and gender discrimination etc. Peace finder teaches women that the issues they face are not their faults and help them find ways to resolves those issues through specific virtual assistants for different topics.
- Peace finder also provides forums for women with same issues to meet each other through anonymous names and avatar and talk about the issues they face.
- Peace finder encourages women to report the cases and issue they have to seek more help.
