UPCOMING EVENTS



13th AWID International Forum

Feminist Futures:

Building Collective Power for Rights and Justice


Date: 8 - 11th September 2016 (TBC)

Costa do Sauipe, Bahia, Brasil


The Due Diligence Project in collaboration with the Association for Progressive Communications Women's Rights Programme are working to hold States and companies accountable, insisting that just because violence happens in the virtual realm does not mean women have no recourse in the physical one. Violence against women online increasingly impacts our lives, yet existing laws are not sufficiently equipped to deal with this new and emerging threat. States argue lack of jurisdiction; companies deny responsibility. We say they're accountable! Come learn how by applying a Framework for accountability for States and internet intermediaries alike!


Presenters:
