Women Under Siege in Syria

Crowdsourcing is being used for incredibly creative and unique applications in our modern world. Sadly though, the fact that rape and other forms of sexualized violence are still used as tools in genocide and conflict, warranting a map to track incidences in Syria for example, is a sad state of affairs. The Women Under Siege campaign is working to create legal, diplomatic, and public interventions to ensure the United Nations, international tribunals, and other agencies with power to understand the gender-based threats as a tool of genocide and design protocols to intervene and halt gender-based genocide. A very cool project, and amazing use of crowdsourcing.
