Not Your Baby App
Not Your Baby is a mobile app to help people deal with sexual harassment at work, school, transit, home or in public spaces. It’s a “sexual harassment response generator”. Once installed, the app allows users to input where they are and who’s harassing them – such as a boss, coworker, family member or fellow student. A possible response is generated “in the moment”, based on the input of people who’ve shared what they’ve done to deal with similar instances of harassment. Not Your Baby includes resources, information about the law, definitions, tips and stories, and it allows users to submit their own stories.Install on your iPhone via iTunesInstall on your Android device through Google Play
