The main issue that stops gender violence from reporting is fear. The fear of not being believed, the fear of having to share their story, and the fear of shame.

Stop-It, by Miami Ad students Rodrigo Dominguez and Elena Hernandez, aims to help domestic abuse victims with these fears.

Using iOS 9's "Hey Siri" hands-free functionality, victims are able to set "Stop it + [Name of abuser] as a command that automatically starts an audio recording.

This audio recording can act as corroborating evidence so that victims can convict their abusers and stop the cycle of violence

The project was the first student entry to ever be awarded within the ANDY professional category of RESET.
