Women Online: The intersection of technology, gender and sexism

Women’s Health East are very excited to present our Women Online: The intersection of technology, gender and sexism paper. 

Click on the image below to check it out.

women online

 

This paper describes the key drivers of violence and how these interact with the
online environment to create ‘cyber violence’. It identifies the various online
spaces which make up today’s online environment and explores the content and
actions facilitated by online spaces which are harmful to women and girls. The
ways that these online spaces can provide a valuable space for women and girls
and assist feminist activism are also explored.

Using the primary prevention framework, Change the Story, the paper presents
a case for action to prevent cyber violence against women and girls through
recommendations for change at individual, organisational and societal levels.
