Smart phone app to help protect women

New mobile technology may offer some support and protection to women vulnerable to sexual assault.

    A quarter of women at US colleges could become victims of sexual assault by the time they graduate, according to a new report from the Justice Department.

    But new technology could offer some of the support and protection many women need.

    Some smart phone applications have been developed to prevent rape - through an alert system - , while others help victims find answers after the trauma of rape.

    Al Jazeera’s Barbara Benitez reports from the US state of Indiana.
