Problem Statement

How might we empower girls and young women to feel safe and included?


Customer / Problem

Young women have been marginalised through lack of respect, the gender pay gap, stigma around periods, domestic violence, and unhealthy stereotyping. A lot of women do not feel safe walking alone at night. This needs to change.


Solution

Self defence classes for young women where they can learn to defend themselves in potentially violent situations. This would boost self esteem, confidence, and mental health. 

A support helpline is another solution that would create an accessible channel for women to discuss any issues.

A brainstorm of the issues facing women today.
