Nowadays, women’s safety in India has become concerning issues against women growing at an important stage. They are facing problems like kidnaping, and sexual harassment toward kids and young girls has been reached uncomfortable levels. This paper presents a women safety device based on the alerts of the global position systems and GSM module devices. This detection alert system consists of GPS, Arduino Uno microcontroller, and GSM modem. GPS tracks the exact location of where the women are facing problems and this information is given to the microcontroller. Microcontroller processes the information and sends the same thing to the user through GSM modem. GSM sends the information in the form of SMS to the predefined mobile number. When a woman is in danger position, she can press the button through which the system is activated and sends the emergency alerts. This paper presents the design and implementation of a system which gives information about the safety and security of women against danger situations like kidnaping and some other harassment.
