Sex work is the world’s most dangerous female profession; women are over 50 times more likely to be murdered than women in any other profession. Keep Safe Initiative is a GPS-enabled mobile panic button to call for help in dangerous situations.
Sex work is the world’s most dangerous female profession, with a homicide rate of 204 per 100,000. Sex workers are over 50 times more likely to be murdered than women in any other profession. The Keep Safe Initiative seeks to create a mobile panic button system for street sex workers. Existing devices with embedded GPS and cellular technology will be provided to sex workers to call help to any location at the push of a button. Vancouver is the ideal city to pilot Keep Safe as the safety of sex workers has been high on the public agenda with the Missing Women’s Commission of Inquiry and the city is making great strides in this important area, with the public showing a high interest in innovative solutions like ours. Sex workers and sex worker advocates in Vancouver have also already come out in favor of implementing a GPS-based safety device for sex workers.
