  1. In developing countries, not everyone has access to internet let alone a smartphone. An alternative would be like to have a wristband which is like disguised as a watch which alerts local police stations. Moreover, some people might be too scared or feel dominated by their partner or scared of the reaction of the society.

  2. NOt everyone has a smartphone nor have access to internet this could be a reason, also with lack of education and exposure this method may not be adeqaute in these regions. The women also may not be bold enough to speak up. A better alternative could be to have someon local in the community that is trusted by all and easily reachable. they can take records as well as educate the women to be empowered, to have a voice, to speak up, to value themselves and feel safe enough to leave and seek help and cpurageous enough to start afresh even with a business.

  3. all people may not have smartphones and also all people may not be educated. We can’t really provide all people a smartphone but we can educate people to do what is right and what to do in such situations

  4. People are still yet to identify the factors that lead to domestic violence. Hence, Despite having mobile applications that instantly report domestic violence to the police, there are still rising levels of attacks in third-world and developing countries.

  5. n most developing countries,most people may not have smart phone hence they wont be able to use an app. An alternative would be to wear a pendant or a ring at nominal cost which sends alerts to the nearby police stations

  8. people are scared to report about what is happening because of what will/may happen after they do or when the person that attacs finds out and something bad would happen

  9. Another alternative to this could be educating people who come from backward societiesAnd spreading awareness among people. better alternative to this could be having an easier mode of communication for the poor illiterate people. better alternative to this could be having an easier mode of communication for the poor illiterate people

  10. This happens because people even today are hesitant to report due to their reputation being damaged. Another reason could be that not all people might have access to these applications especially the poor.

  11. A better alternative could be to have a more effective judicial system that sees to it that no unfair practices take place and if they do the people involved are punished.

  12. The reason is that people still have misogynistic thinking and are still backward, they aren’t educated properly and think it is about their honour and reputation. This is clearly wrong and they need to be educated about this matter.

  13. There are still rising levels of attacks in third world countries where poverty is common and people cannot afford to buy these mobiles for downloading the app. A better alternative is to provide the third world countries with a common telephone just for reporting domestic violence so that these attacks will fall.

  14. Many people fear the damage this would bring to their repuatation and honour, due to this many domestic-violence cases go unnoticed. It would thus be better to educate women and men of thier rights, and to practice their equality from the very beginning, or making domestic violence a capital punishment.

  15. many people are resistant to report due to their personal reasons. There must be regular surveys and check ups on the people to identify such attacks. The person might be vulnerable so every citizen should be aware of the police guidelines for such domestic attacks.

  16. This happens as the mobile applications are not able to capture and report all the cases and problems faced in society. They should regularly conduct surveys in each area of the country to keep up with the problems and find the solutions collectively.

  17. In developing countries, people might not be able to afford mobile phones that can support the installation of several apps. Even though, some might be able to afford such devices, instead they use their way of gathering several voices to on big one and use violence to solve the issue, that might be due to the level of education since these countries have poor economy which might mean poor education. They want their voice heard so a good way would be to always listen to the people and see what they want to prevent such attacks primarily, as well as arranging a meeting or a gathering every now and then and listen to the issues of the people and solving them sensibly before it gets to the point of people taking actions and be violent.

  18. many people are resistant to report due to their personal reasons. There must be regular surveys and check ups on the people to identify such attacks. The person might be vulnerable so every citizen should be aware of the police guidelines for such domestic attacks.

  19. This happens beacuse people are unable to buy such mobiles or at the time of domestic violence there are no neccessary resources to report the violence. A better alternative would be rasing awarness and having frequent checks.

  20. tester: Create a list of 5 different ways, online, that you can share your ideas on a topic/area that you are passionate about. Example: Astronomy Facebook GroupsCreate a list of 5 different ways, online, that you can share your ideas on a topic/area that you are passionate about. Example: Astronomy Facebook Groups.

  21. Many people in developing countries are unable to afford such expensive mobile phones, that support these advanced features. Therefore these applications are rendered useless in some cases. A better alternative would be to raise awareness within the community and ensure people have access to an effective safe support system which they can report any incidences of violence to.

  22. may people dot even have a monile phone and thus such apps will not be used by them.
    laws can be made to prevent these, and organisations could spread awareness of such laws and encourage women to complain in case they are subject to domestic violence.
