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).

Learning Objectives

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.
