A new website plans to use social media to help women in Egypt fight unwanted sexual attention. The site is harassmap.org.

一个新网站计划利用社会媒体帮助埃及妇女与不当性关注作斗争。该网站是harassmap.org。


The idea is to offer different ways for women to report sexual harassment as soon as it happens. They could send a text message by phone. Or they could report incidents directly through the website or through e-mail, Facebook or Twitter. The site will then map the reports with different colored dots. Purple, for example, represents unwanted touching. Blue is for loud, offensive comments or whistling.

这个想法是为遭受到性骚扰的妇女提供不同的方式,及时对遭受的性骚扰进行报告。 她们可以通过手机发送短信。 或者,她们可以通过网站,电子邮件,Facebook或Twitter等方式直接报告。这个网站将事情发生的地点在地图上用不同的颜色标注出来。 例如,紫色,代表不正当肢体接触。 蓝色代表,大声的,冒犯性的言语挑衅,或吹口哨。


The official launch is expected on December twenty-fifth.

这个网站预计于十二月二十五日正式启动。


Rebecca Chiao helped create HarassMap. She says most of the reports gathered during testing include more than one offense.

Rebecca Chiao帮助创建HarassMap。 她说,在测试过程中收集到的大部分报告中都包括一个以上的冒犯行为。


REBECCA CHIAO: "What we're finding is that people are checking more than one category. So usually it's not just that someone is groped; they're groped and someone says provocative words to them."

REBECCA CHIAO: "我们现在发现人们不止选择一项。所以通常情况下,不只是在肢体上被冒犯,而是在肢体被冒犯时伴随着挑逗性的言语。"


The site lists whether or not a report has been confirmed.

该网站列出了一份不知是否得到证实的报告。


Mrs. Chiao is a former employee of the Egyptian Center for Women's Rights. In two thousand eight the center released a report on sexual harassment in Egypt. Researchers interviewed more than one thousand women, including one hundred nine foreigners living or traveling in Egypt.

Chiao女士曾经是埃及妇女权益中心的一名员工。 2008年该中心发表了一份关于关于埃及性骚扰的报告。 研究者对超过1000名妇女进行了调查,包括109名在埃及居住和旅游的外国妇女。


Ninety-eight percent of the foreign women said they had been sexually harassed. So did eighty-three percent of the Egyptian women.

98%的外国妇女和83%的埃及妇女说,她们受到过性骚扰。


Rebecca Chiao says harassmap.org will help warn the public about areas where there is a high risk of harassment. It could also help police identify areas where security should be increased. And she says the system will provide another important service.

Rebecca Chiao说harassmap.org有助于将性骚扰多发区向公众发出警示,还可以帮助警方确定哪些地方应增加安全防范措施,该系统将提供另一个重要的服务。


REBECCA CHIAO: "Every time we get a report, we'll send a response to the person reporting with a list of services that they can contact if they need help with legal aid or how to make a police report or [find] psychological help."

REBECCA CHIAO: "每次收到报告,我们会向发报告者传送一个服务清单。如果他们需要帮助如法律援助或者报警或心理帮助,都可以和我们联系"。


The women will also be able to share their stories online with other victims of sexual harassment.

遭受性骚扰的妇女也可以在线与其他受害者分享她们的遭遇。


A similar project was launched in two thousand five in New York City. Victims can go to ihollaback.org to share stories of "street harassment" and to upload pictures of accused offenders.

纽约市于2005年也启动了一个类似的项目。 受害人登录ihollaback.org分享“街头骚扰”的事情,并上传被告罪犯的照片。


There are now ten Hollaback! websites around the world and more are planned. Earlier this month, Hollaback! released an application for the Apple iPhone that lets users report harassment as soon as it happens.

现在世界范围内有十个Hollaback!网站,更多的网站正在规划中。 本月初,Hollaback!向苹果iPhone发出了一份申请,希望用户对性骚扰的遭遇能够尽快的反馈。
