New version of safety app for women to be launched

TAIPEI -- A Taipei-based women's rights group and a local mobile developer are teaming up to launch an upgraded version of “HelpMee,” an app aimed at ensuring women can stay safe both in public and at home, the group said Monday.

The Taipei Women's Rescue Foundation and Chylyng Co. will announce the new version of the iOS and Android app, which sends emergency messages to designated contacts and law enforcement agencies, at a press conference on Tuesday, the foundation said.

I hate this pandering to women's safety. Why can't they just promote it as a safety app keeping all members of the public 'safe'. Women aren't little princesses made of glass. Correct, women are more likely to suffer from domestic violence, sexual assaults than men, but men are also victims. However, men are more likely to suffer from violent attacks and armed robbery. Both sexes should be treated the same, no more women only waiting areas on the MRT, women only parking spaces etc. This is sexist and in the age of equality should be addressed.
