Women are subjected to an increasing amount of harassment these days, which is troubling. The situation is extremely serious in both developing and developing countries. As a result, it poses a serious threat to women's empowerment as well as a country's fiscal development. We are developing IoT software and an Android app to make women's movement safer in this project. By pressing the device's emergency button, women will receive immediate and comprehensive safety assistance. In the event of an incident, this system will monitor the user's location in real-time and send it to a local police station and volunteer. This device will also provide the user with the location of the nearest safe zone. Furthermore, this interface can be used both online and offline. If the user does not have access to the internet, the computer can also be used to contact the nearest police station and volunteer assistance. Arduino uno, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth, and other components make up the system. The combination of both of these factors makes this product both inexpensive and simple to use.

This study concentrates on natural dyeing methods to contribute to the sustainability phenomenon, which is a buzzword in the fashion industry now. Kerala being a state where jack tree is abundantly available any time of the year, this study proposes to revive this cluster by training these women with the sustainable and innovative dyeing technique of jack bark dyeing. The jack tree, a major source of natural dye, has a potential demand in the international market. Today people around the globe are rediscovering color using renewable and non - toxic natural sources. Now-a-days, people are becoming health conscious, and are going organic, herbal, or natural. Although there is an affinity towards organic food, organic textiles, herbal cosmetics/medicines, the knowledge about natural dyes and application of natural dyes is minimal. Bark wood of jack tree is first made into chips, sawdust or even powdered. In order to survive in this competitive world, this all women cluster needs to be innovative and creative in what they produce. To keep the handloom tradition with natural tint in it, this jack tree dye recipe will play the major role.
