Tracks

Health

Health and Wellness

Health, which is the most important component of our life, often gets neglected. Build something around the domain of health and wellness which can make women aware of their physical and mental health. For instance an app targetting specific health problems women face, a mental wellness website or something as generic as a health tracker.

Security

Safety and Security

In today's world , especially in India , women lack the safety and protection they need in their everyday lives. Starting from physical harassment to cyber bullying , the list is endless. The problem is to find ways for women to be provided with proper protection and safety facilities wherever and whenever they are in need of it. One example could be to use data intelligence to collect information about cyber stalkers and use the predictive analysis to report them and therefore fulfilling its purpose. Another example could be to find ways to keep women safe with better real time protection and immediate responsive help when needed. We leave it up to you to pick up a problem from this topic and work around it.

Lockdown

Problems faced by women in lockdown

Despite its wide geographic spread, the COVID-19 pandemic has not affected everyone in the same way. Women have suffered a lot and in this direction, develop something to curtail the negative impacts of this pandemic on females. These include the Risk of Violence, abuse, and assault, especially when going out. Considering this build a solution that for an instance can keep a track of the person. One solution can be SOS based system that can send location coordinates and contacts nearest Police Station and women safety station. Try not to cultivate around the above examples only.

Rural Women

Problems faced by rural women

Rural women play a significant role inside the houses as well as on farms along with animal husbandry work. This triple burden has made the life of rural women especially in hilly areas miserable & full of drudgery. There is lack of awareness on topics such as safe sanitary methods, family planning etc. We require some technological interventions in order to reduce drudgery of and/or help empower rural women

Education/Jobs

Education+Jobs and Career

Despite of some govt initiatives, like beti bachao beti padhao, there are still some houses, where education and higher studies are not encouraged after a certain age. Along with a lack of support, there is often a lack of guidance and assurity, when it comes to one's job or career. Devise a solution for helping the cause of awareness among the masses. In turn bringing up more females at forefront on non-conventional fields like STEM,Politics,etc.
