Tunisian students developing app to protect women

The new app being developed by a group of university students will allow women to feel safer when moving around on their own.

    Tunisia has long been a regional leader in protecting women’s rights.

    Last year Muslim women were allowed to marry non-Muslim men - and now activists are demanding equal inheritance rights as men.

    But activists say sexual harassment is still a big problem, but some university students are working on an app that will use technology to protect women.
