The purpose of our website is to support and empower women. It consists of a map, forum, and other resources such as hotlines and book recommendations. Our map makes donating to organizations efficient by categorizing them by health and employment/education, providing a short description of each organization, and providing a donation and homepage link. Our forum provides a way for women to support each other during difficult times by answering questions other users ask. We've also compiled hotlines and books for women needing health, education, or career help.
Women often lack resources to receive medical help and progress their careers and educations. As a result, women are underrepresented in the workforce and face many problems in societies. There are also programs dedicated to aiding women in need. However, due to insufficient funding many are unable to fulfill their purposes and increase their impact on women.
By offering an efficient way to donate through a map, we hope to make health, employment, and education help for women more accessible. We also created a forum in which women can ask and answer each other's questions in a wide range of topics. This is a way for women to support each other. Our website contains book recommendations that could help women with their careers, education, and health. Hotlines (both by call and online) are also provided for women to use in times of crisis.
We ran into many bugs while compiling the mapbox code with our own. We also had problems integrating tabletop to read our sheets document and placing objects in our array. We overcame it using resources like stackoverflow.com and w3schools.com. Another way we found helpful was going over the code itself and making sense of each aspect.
