Session Description

This is a working group (participation is based on invitation). During this workshop we will assess together how we can enable networks of support for women and their allies in order to face and overcome gender-tech based violences. We will depart from our own realities and ground-based work in order to share about what works (and what does not) in relation to documenting and supporting targets of tech-related violence and how we can boost the creation of regional networks based on self care, solidarity and secure communication channels in order to create resilient and sustainable community of practices, mentoring and counseling. More in detail, we will reflect together about how we can adapt and scale practices in our networks for the creation of more safe spaces (online and offline) where bystanders, targets and allies can gather, resist, overcome and create. We will share about social processes, strategies of resistance, low and high tech, autonomy and collectives, and how anonymity, privacy and the web of trust interrelates with all of that?
