Visualizing sexual harassment in Egypt
HarassMap is an award winning anti-sexual harassment initiative, based on the idea that if more people start taking action when sexual harassment happens in their presence, we can end this epidemic.
I was asked by HarassMap to redesign their reporting platform that monitors and explore ways to help display and navigate data on sexual harassment incidents and interventions in Egypt.
In 2013 a staggering 99.3% of Egyptian women have been sexually harassed in their everyday life. In 2014 only 2.6% have reported sexual harassment.
Incidents and interventions
Data on sexual harassment comes from reports from victims (incidents) and from bystanders (interventions).
In order to provide a range of tools to navigate the data, users can switch from a map view to a chart view that shows a timeline of interventions and incidents as well as clustered visualizations to browse through categories of incidents.
