Digital Rights and Combating Online Gender Based Violence

Rising Minds headphones at the Rising Minds Radio Station at Women Deliver 2023.

It’s estimated that 1 in 3 women have been subjected to intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence or both at least once in their life. Gender based violence is one of the most pervasive human rights violations in the world. And online gender based violence is an extension of that harsh reality.

As our world is increasingly connected to the internet, perpetrators of gender based violence are increasingly using online platforms and spaces. From cyberstalking to doxxing, online violence is real and widespread.

Through the Rising Minds podcast, young people shape conversations on the issues that impact their wellbeing. In several of the podcast episodes, young people discuss online gender based violence, harassment and digital rights for women and girls. This post summarises the main points from two episodes of the Rising Minds podcast, that you can listen to below.

Learn what online gender based violence is and about the challenges for activists and advocates. Understand more about the barriers to addressing online violence, and be encouraged by advocates working to create change.
