Get to Know GEM

GEM is a company founded by women with women in mind.

We focus on giving women, who are disproportionately affected by domestic and sexual violence, more control over any situation that they are faced with, by providing discreet and customizable ways to get help.

We believe that safety is a right—not a privilege, so our mission is to provide support for any one in any circumstance. Whether it’s an uncomfortable situation or an emergency, GEM’s mission is to be there every step of the way.
