How women survivors are taking back the power through technology | Hera Hussain | TEDxEastEnd

  • Hera Hussain
Imagine being faced with a life-threatening situation - where would you turn first? Hera Hussain emphasises the power of the internet for women to find the resources they need and support each other and argues that it should be in the hands of the community, not the experts. Named as one of the 17 Local Globalists by GOOD magazine and founder of Chayn, Hera has long been recognised as a community leader on the start-up scene for her ability to connect volunteers with technology and tools to tackle key social issues with Chayn being an obvious example; it exists to empower women against violence by using crowdsourcing, working with survivors of abuse across the globe and plays to Hera’s early passion to enable women in today’s world.
