Women in Japan are downloading the country's anti-groping app - in record numbers
Sash|Jun. 06, 2019
So, how does the app work?
Let's say a person faces unwanted groping on a packed subway. They can proceed to activate the app, which either blasts a voice shouting "stop it," or produces a full-screen message saying "there is a molester. please help," to show to other passengers.
In Tokyo, there were almost 900 groping and other harassment cases on trains and subways reported in 2017, according to data from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.
