How to combat and campaign on online abuse and harassment

Online abuse and harassment of women is a global problem and a particular problem for politically active women. This should not be seen as a normal occurence, but a ‘glitch’ we have to fix. This ‘glitch’ in the online world is an increasing threat to democracy, human rights, safety and wellbeing. As the online and offline worlds become more fluid and we gradually move political participation online, how can we ensure everyone can fully engage and express opinions? How can we mobilise and build a movement of campaigners? How can we set a good standard within our own sphere of influence and lobby social media companies and decision-makers to commit to creating a safer internet? Join us for an interactive guide to campaigning against online abuse.
