Director of WMC's Women Under Siege
In the ongoing reporting of the Syrian uprising, there has been little information about the violence committed against women. Using a creative web based tool, our guest hopes to fix that. Lauren Wolfe is the director of Women Under Siege, a Women's Media Center project that has co-created a site to crowd-source data of violence against women. The first of its kind, this live, web-based map gives the world access to information on the violent uprising that has been, until now, impossible to report due to Syria's strictly monitored borders.
