An initiative by Pink Belt Mission to prevent and provide immediate and effective ﬁrst aid to a woman who has been a victim of rape,
assault or abuse.
Every 13 minutes, a woman is raped in India.
More than 30% of attacks on women are that of domestic abuse.
More than 1000 acid attacks take place every year.
There are laws in place which are meant to protect our women, but do we really ensure our women are protected?
Do we ensure we don’t let biases and lack of information hold us back from giving our victims the help they deserve? As per section 357C of IPC, a rape victim is to be MANDATORILY provided treatment free of cost, even at a private hospital.
But does this happen in reality? Are we even aware of it?
WE can make this a reality. WE can come together and try to ensure that any time a woman is attacked or feels unsafe at home, on the streets, in a new city, she is able to CALL and GET help.
Introducing the Pink Belt, a concept of an alert system which when activated alerts the police to provide timely support to a victim. If we cannot PREVENT an attack, we can try to PROVIDE the right help at a victim’s time of need.
We urge you to come together to help those who you know and those you don't by signing the petition and demanding the government to make this concept a reality.
Thank you for signing the
Your name has been added to this petition, which will be delivered to the Government of India to help us make this concept a reality.
Please take a moment to share this petition with your friends, so we can make an even bigger impact on behalf of women across India by providing victims with immediate and effective ﬁrst aid.
A concept of a device designed in the form of a band to be worn around the wrist by a woman serving as her protector. The product will have a button, which upon being pressed triggers an alert through an inbuilt SIM card. The alert from the product is shared with the nearest police station, who can then dispatch personnel to the victims’ location and the right steps to help her can be taken. The safety device will be embedded within the coating of a silicone casing for durability & other functional requirements linked to your GPS location without the need of any internet accessibility.
It will also have inbuilt sensors which will get activated upon extreme force, so if an attacker tries to pull or break the device an automatic alert shall be triggered with the victims’ exact location.
