Day 1: Not Your Baby App
Not Your Baby is a free app for iPhones and Android devices, designed to give you ideas about how you can respond to situations of sexual harassment at home, work, school and on the street and public transit. A project of the Toronto-based Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children, it was designed in partnership with TAKE ACTION games.
A grid format allows the user to select who is doing the harassing, as well as the scenario in which it occurs. The app then recommends a response to the situation, based on submissions from other users (example: for a stranger on public transit, it suggests "Would you speak to your sister that way?" It includes facts and personal stories about sexual harassment, how you can support someone dealing with sexual harassment, and important resources and organizations.
The app was designed based on feedback from over 200 survey respondents on the topic of sexual harassment. To view the research summary, click here.
