Highlights on tech-related violence against women in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mexico and the Philippines

14 November 2014 (Flavia Fascendini for APCNews)

APC’s “End violence: Women’s rights and safety online” project has achieved several milestones in the last few years, through the engagement of seven country partners who have explored the dynamics of tech-related violence against women (VAW) in their local contexts, and worked with different stakeholders in the process. 2014 opened up new possibilities and challenges for partners, and APCNews interviewed Valentina Pellizzer from OWPSEE, Erika Smith from Mexico, and Lisa García from the Foundation for Media Alternatives to get a sense of where they are at in their work against tech-related VAW.
