WOMEN SAFETY APPS: FOR THOSE WHO FEEL UNSAFE STEPPING OUT ALONE

Every year, 25 November is recognized as International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women to raise awareness about the suffering of women around the world. Various programs are organized; every year, new safety rules are adopted. Still, violence against women and girls is a major concern for India. The increasing number of violence, domestic abuse, rape and other crimes against women has planted seeds of fear in the minds of Indian people. These fears ultimately impose deadlines and strict rules on woman and limit their freedom.

Thankfully though, there are a lot of personal safety applications developed to help tackle this issue. We have here a list of 6 apps, which will act as a security guard for the woman, protecting them in every situation:
