Cyber Violence against Women and Girls

In the last decade, the rise of technological advancement as a popular means of socialisation has extended gender violence to a new dimension. As a result, young women experience the digital world both as a site of empowerment and a source of sexual repression. The growing reach of the Internet, the rapid spread of mobile information and communications technologies (ICTs) and the widespread use of social media have presented new opportunities and enabled various ways to address violence against women and girls.

This document is a public output of the CYBERSAFE project - Changing Attitudes among teenagers on Cyber Violence against Women and Girls. The CYBERSAFE project addresses cyberviolence against women and girls that is gender-based, meaning that the act of violence happens because of the gender of the victim.
