Our Story

Crime and violence against women, sexual abuse and rape are increasing globally. It creates insecurity, fear and dread for women all over the world.

Globally 1 in 3 women experience violence or sexual assault.
In the US, every 68 seconds another American is sexually assaulted.1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of rape or attempted rape. Ages 12-34 are the highest risk years for rape and sexual assault.Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape. Among undergraduate College students, 26.4% of females experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation. In Norway, 1 in 10 rapes are reported. The police close and do not act on 8 out of 10 cases. 1 in 100 reported rapes end with a conviction. This means that only 1 in 1,000 rapes in Norway ends with some form of conviction. In most other countries, the statistics are even worse.

According to statistics, you and I have 2-3 women in our close relationships (either friends or family) who have experienced or will experience rape. In many cases, it is not the incident itself that makes many women struggle from violence and rape. Most of the time, it is the shame and guilt that causes many to have mental problems, including intoxication, self-harm, depression and in the worst case suicide. We can not afford that!

Charlen was raped. She struggled with guilt, shame anxiety and suicidal thoughts for many years, until one day when her father Rich sat down with her. Together, they reflected on how the incident could have been avoided

Based on Charlen’s experience, they started to develop features that could have prevented the rape, warned her friends and family, and collected evidence for later use in court. They wanted to develop features and solutions that can prevent pain, self-harm, anxiety, depression, and suicide among young girls and boys.

- If I had bSafe, my rape could’ve been prevented and I wouldn’t have had to struggle as much as I’ve done, says Charlen.

Her experience, ideas, and reflections have formed the basis for the cutting-edge and world-leading technology that has been developed by Bsafe in recent years and is being launched worldwide with international partners this year.
