BREAKING DOWN SILOS: CROSS-SECTOR APPROACHES TO COMBATTING ONLINE GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
10/12/2019 @ 08:30 - 16:00
As part of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence (GBV), ARTICLE 19 and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) are hosting a multi-sector discussion and day-of-action to combat online gender-based violence against women.
Technology-facilitated GBV is globally pervasive, extending and amplifying historical forms of oppression and discrimination. As a consequence, online civic engagement – particularly for women and girls – has become out-of-reach and full of risks.
As tech dramatically changes the way we communicate, it is time for key stakeholders to consider the role that this technology will play in ensuring the Internet remains an open, inclusive, and diverse space. It is critical that changemakers from a range of sectors come together to break down the silos and determine cross-cutting solutions to ensure that civic space flourishes online.
During the panel discussion, we will share the latest research, best practices, tools, and lessons learned. ARTICLE 19 will also be sharing “The Anatomy of Technology-related Violence Against Women,” a mapping tool of online abuse, and illustrate its use for women journalists. ICRW and ARTICLE 19 will be joined by experts in tech, policy, activism, program implementation, and the donor community.
