Vantage Point looks to eradicate sexual assault and sexual harassment, with the help of virtual reality.
Morgan Mercer and the team at Vantage Point are looking to eradicate sexual assault and sexual harassment, with the help of virtual reality.
The team says that existing educational programs fail in several way to truly help victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment.
Morgan Mercer has started a crowdfunding campaign for a virtual reality tool to help people combat the issues of sexual assault and sexual harassment faced by many in campuses and the workplace.
Working with entertainment industry vet Louisa Spring, Mercer looks to find a way to make many of the issues that seem to only now be strongly addressed by the media truly become things of the past.
Long before #MeToo, sexual assault and harassment was an epidemic that impeded a woman's ability to live, work, and advance her role in society. Women are now empowered to speak up, speak out, and are working to build a world where sexual assault and harassment will not be tolerated. Vantage Point is a ground-breaking and innovative part of this effort -- and one that will not only change the dialogue and the response, but will hopefully help to put an end to the culture of acceptance around sexual assault. "
- Sara Elizabeth Dill, Director of Criminal Justice Standards at the American Bar Association
"Being a career woman has not always been easy, but having the fortitude to persevere and helping those in need has been my goal throughout life...both personal and professional. With the recent sexual harassment revelations coming out of Hollywood and beyond, Morgan's virtual reality is a much needed program which will educate and change the culture. It has the impact and positive tone that once unleashed will transform the world."

Tony Parisi, head of AR/VR strategy at Unity Technologies is currently an advisor on this project along with other influential figures in the tech community including Leen Segers, CEO of LucidWeb and Carrie Shaw, CEO of Embodied Labs.
