@KatManalac, thanks for hunting us! Hey Product Hunt! I'm Tammy, one of the creators of BetterBrave. Like many of you, my co-creators and I were heartbroken by the stories of rampant sexual harassment in the tech world. Unsurprisingly, this issue expands way beyond the tech world. But did you know by how much? One in three women (ages 18-34) are harassed in the workplace. We were compelled to figure out a solution to this longstanding problem. Over the past few months, we talked to hundreds of people (targets of harassment, HR, founders, investors, and lawyers) to understand the full landscape of harassment at work. We're so proud to announce that these months of research have resulted in BetterBrave - the go-to provider of resources and tools to empower targets of harassment. Our first resource is a free guide that outlines what you should do if you ever experience sexual harassment in the workplace. We can also help you connect with local employment lawyers (read our guide to find out why). Check out our guide: http://betterbrave.com Why we started this: http://bit.ly/betterbrave-medium We hope this is helpful to you. Please pass on our guide to someone you think would find it useful! Lastly, we're always looking for feedback on how we can improve and be more helpful. Please feel free to comment below or DM us with your questions, comments, or concerns! We're at creators@betterbrave.com. With love, Team BetterBrave P.S. It's free, so just go and check us out!

Congrats on launching! This is a very useful, much-needed site and great starting point for anyone who's experienced sexual harassment at work (or knows someone that has). I like that you also connect people with lawyers.

This is a really valuable tool @tammywcho - an unbiased, clear starting point for victims, advocates, and anyone at any company, regardless of company size. It's rare to see such a thorough account of what happens behind the scenes, like what HR investigations typically look like and how victims can document inappropriate situations. I also really appreciate the perspective you give about HR's focus on the company and staying within the law, vs solely on the victim. This is so well designed and really puts victims first. Appreciate all the research you did and care you took in crafting this. I worked in corporate for 10 years and have been in startups for 1.5 and never read a succinct and clear description of the law and advice on what to do until BetterBrave. Thank you for creating this! It's a must use for everyone.

@marie_prokopets Marie, thank you so much for sharing this feedback. We're glad that you appreciated how we included both the perspective of the company as well as the target. This was something we were very intentional about highlighting. I'm so thrilled to hear that you found this to be both informative and useful, especially given your extensive experience in both corporate and startups!
