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.
