This app says it measures how many times women are interrupted by men
After installing the app, users are prompted to record their voice, allowing the user to be recognized. The app then runs in the background, using the microphone to analyze conversations and identify interruptions in real time.The app just counts the number of interruptions, no conversation is saved, the ad agency says.
The video introducing the app (watch it in full below) features other famous "manterruptions" including Kanye West's 2009 VMA "imma let you finish" interruption of Taylor Swift and James Corden cutting Adele's Brit Awards speech short in 2012.To begin with, the app will focus on the workplace environment. Men can also use the app as a self-help tool to see how many times they've interrupted their female colleagues.
In a press release, Gal Barradas, co-CEO of BETC Sao Paulo, said: "We, women, struggle every day to get our space in the workplace and the right to express ourselves. When we get there, Manterrupting reduces our participation."In the future, BETC will launch a dashboard allowing people to visualize interruptions in real time and compare the number of interruptions across different countries.
