Smart Phone Applications Help Report Sexual Harassment

October 1st, 2018

Philadelphia sexual harassment lawyers report on new smart phone apps to report harassment.Many people who have been victims of sexual harassment do not report it. Even in the wake of publicity about sexual harassment after the Harvey Weinstein revelations, the #MeToo movement that followed, and the ensuing scandals that came to light in many industries, victims are often afraid to speak up. However, a new Smart Phone application may make reporting sexual harassment much easier.

Although the surge of new Smart Phone applications began as a method to report sexual assaults or harassment on college campuses, software developers are now creating these applications as tools for the workplace in hopes that they will encourage reporting and stop repeat offenders in their tracks.

Callisto and JDoe are two new applications, and another new application for the technology industry is expected to be available in the fall season. It is hoped that these devices will make the reporting of sexual harassment less traumatizing. Many who have been sexually harassed are filled with shame and fear, even though they have done nothing wrong.

The new sexual harassment applications encrypt the victim’s report. They can then either keep a time-stamped copy until they feel ready to submit their report, or they can submit it directly to the authorities. Users have the advantage of time and privacy to figure out if what they experienced was a misunderstanding, or more serious. They also have the benefit of being able to convey their experience without a filter, telling as much or as little as they wish. The ease of reporting this way can provide empowerment to the victim.
