A Wearable Device To Protect Women’s Personal Safety
The ONEE is designed to allow two friends to send 'distress signals' to each other while in the same area
Every day, the news is filled with stories of murder, burglary, assault, and other vicious crimes. Unfortunately, the statistics are not in women’s favor. According to UN Women, about 35 percent of women around the world will experience some form of physical and/or sexual assault from a stranger and 70 percent will experience some form of physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner. That adds up to a woman being sexually assaulted every 90 seconds somewhere in the world. With facts like these, it’s no wonder many women are afraid to leave the house at night without some kind of protection. One new wearable device called ONEE is looking to change things while simultaneously bringing friends closer together.
