Rape Is Not a Data Problem

Karen Levy

In this piece, Data & Society fellow Karen Levy criticizes the oversimplifications of technological tools that attempt to “solve” rape. “It’s encouraging to see techies trying to address knotty social issues like sexual violence. But if technology is going to intervene for good, it needs to adopt a more nuanced approach — one that appreciates that not every problem can be treated as a data problem.”
