Introduction & Learning Objectives
This module is about guiding participants through the issues relating to online gender-based violence – its root causes, how violence plays out on the internet, the continuum of violence that women, women-identified and queer identities experience online and offline, and its impact.
This module is based largely on the more than a decade of work that the APC Women´s Rights Programme (WRP) has done through the Take Back the Tech! campaign, the End violence: Women's rights and safety online project, MDG3: Take Back the Tech! to end violence against women project, and EROTICS (Exploratory Research on Sexuality and the Internet).
By the end of this module, the participants will have:
- An understanding of the forms of online gender-based violence (online GBV) and its impacts on the survivors and their communities.
- An understanding of the continuum of violence between the offline and the online spheres, and the power structures that allow it.
- Ideas, strategies and actions about the ways in which online GBV, especially in their contexts, can be addressed.
