It’s Women’s Week at GISetc in honor of International Women’s Day which was last Friday, March 8th.  This week we are sharing maps & apps that focus on women’s rights and safety. Be sure to visit the original article to get a closer look at this phenomenal map and take a deeper look into women in government.

At we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
