Women hacking to save women

Standard

As I type this, women from Kenya to Australia to Brazil to the United States are taking part in a three day women-only hackathon and creating tech solutions to combat human trafficking. I love this intersection! Supporting women in the tech field while also creating real solutions for three NGOs. The primary beneficiaries of these tech solutions will be women and girls (although men and boys are also trafficked and sadly often forgotten). What types of things do you think they will come up with?
