Technology and social media have played a critical role in the protest of recent years, from the online activist group Anonymous to the Middle Eastern uprising known as the Arab Spring. Camera phones, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook are just some of the tools used by activists to strengthen their resolve, spread their message, and expose perceived injustices to the world.
When large-scale protests began in Egypt in 2011, they were accompanied by reports of women being insulted, beaten and raped.
Kayla Richards's insight:
"An interactive map for reporting abuse is trying to ensure that the latest protests are not accompanied by a fresh wave of sexual attacks." Volunteers of HarassMap work collecting reports of sexual harassment, assault, and rape from SMS Text, Facebook, and Twitter to improve awareness and response in Egypt during the especially dangerous time of protest.
AS protesters in Egpyt give President Muhammed Morsi until tomorrow morning to step aside, the many voices calling for him to go in no uncertain terms are using the power of social media to make their voices heard.
