Giving a Voice
75% of abused women
are killed in the first two weeks after leaving
After conducting our secondary research, we decided to develop our concept based on the previous statistic. Knowing that the most critical stage lies between these first two weeks after leaving their abuser, we wanted to work on lowering that percentage. Having this in mind, we decided to develop three main pillars; clarity, stability and safety.
Victims start to believe that abuse is normal
One returns to where they were abused about 70 times in the first two weeks
On average, 7 tries are needed to successfully leave an abuser
Alias Stocks app
To provide anonymity
Tap or swipe left to immediately switch to the alias app.
Mosaic Method Threat Assessment System
Custom plan which can be revisited if there is a change in conditions
Safety Checklist to help gather items
Legal & Therapy help when needed
Secure Den homes
Den is meant to accompany and provide the resources that are needed in order to safely leave the abuser. In order to provide safety during the set two weeks, Den provided preparation, safe escape and recovery.
