Violence and Harassment: Navigating the hazardous online world for women in North Africa

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will highlight how women in North Africa are impacted by violence and harassment online, and the broader impact this then has on the participation of women in important online forums. The session will also highlight effective strategies grassroots women’s groups can utilise to better equip their communities to combat threats women in the region face online. It is rare for grassroots women’s groups in North Africa - from rural and remote communities - to interface directly with the technology and digital security community. This session will create a space that allows frontline women’s rights groups and technologists to engage with each other directly, share learning, and form alliances that will help ensure the safety and participation of women online into the future.
