Webinar – Breaking Down Online Hate & Violence Against Women

Tuesday 24 January 2023, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST, online (Montreal, Canada)


Gendered disinformation and violence against women online have become a reality across the globe. A growing body of research shows that women online are targets of vicious online attacks and gendered disinformation campaigns framing women as inherently untrustworthy, unintelligent, too emotional, or sexualized, often carried out with malign intent and coordination. This session aims to unpack violence against women online & discuss tangible solutions to making online environments more equitable and safe spaces for women.

The Digital Peace Project seeks to contribute to national efforts to mitigate online hate while respecting freedom of speech. It will accomplish this by engaging with civil society actors, particularly those belonging to ethnic, cultural, religious and visible minority communities. More precisely, the project aims to increase the capacity of ethnic and cultural communities to address online racism and discrimination by centering the perspectives and opinions of those communities while exploring ideas for solutions.
