The Smart Dress Designed By Brazilian Researchers Helps Men To Respect Women More

This smart dress is showing us a partially negative side in modern society when some men think sexual harassment to women is not a concern.

Brazilian researchers have recently designed a kind of smart dress that can realize how many times and where women are touched. This new technology is showing us a partially negative side in modern society when some men think sexual harassment to women is not a concern.

Smart Dress Sensor To Check How Women Get Groped 1

The researchers called the smart dress ‘The Dress for Respect’ which hides sensors through the fabric. When a woman wears it, these sensors will list positions on the dress being touched by others. And more importantly, they can determine how intensive the external touch is; therefore, the measured results will ensure the higher accuracy.

In a report by the IT firm Quartz, the researchers want men to realize that they are wrong when thinking women are safe and not touched much at clubs.

The Brazilian researchers did a little experiment to prove their points of view: three women in the same smart dress went to a party in a nightclub and a visual heat map linked to the dress will analyze and list where and how many times they are touched. The physically contacted positions include lower back, arm, and backside. What makes us the most surprised (or not surprised) is that the total number of times these three women are touched reached 157 times in less than 4 hours.

After that, the researchers let the men who came to the club that night see the result collected from the heat map of ‘The Dress for Respect’ so that they can evaluate more accurately the rate that women often get the physical harassment in public, especially in somewhere like clubs.

The Brazilian researchers deserve to be honored with their initiative. With ‘The Dress for Respect’, women will, hopefully, get more respect than they do now.
