    Young women worldwide are being encouraged to use technology to report harassment in an effort to make the streets safer.

    An international charity has made an app which women can use to highlight where they do not feel safe walking.

    The hope is the data can then be used by city planners to make improvements.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney, where the app was first created.
