APC's Women's Rights Programme statement: Forwarding violence is violence

By APC WRP (November 2014, APC )

The Association for Progressive Communications Women’s Rights Programme (APC WRP) rejects and condemns systemic, technology-related violence against women in all its expressions. The acts of recording, photographing and documenting acts of sexual violence and further distribution and sharing are all part of the violence. With each view, share and forward, people are continuing and replicating the violence. These actions are not separate from structures of gender inequality and discrimination that enable sexual harassment, violence and assault to perpetuate.

Statement from members of the WHRD IC to the Human Rights Council on its 27th Session

By Women Human Rights Defender International Coalition (September 2014, APC )

ISHR makes this statement on behalf of members of the Women Human Rights Defender International Coalition, an international network of women’s rights, human rights and sexual rights organizations. We address this simple fact: in the global North and South alike, women human rights defenders are targeted for murder, kidnapping, torture, rape, and harassment because of who we are and because of the work we do. As the Council strengthens its work on women generally, we note the critical need to integrate analysis and reporting on women human rights defenders who demand protection, respect and fulfillment of all human rights.

Feminist Principles of the Internet

By APC (September 2014, APC )

Over three days, the participants discussed and debated intersections of gender, sexuality, and the internet – not only as a tool – but as a new public space. In thinking through these issues, the participants at the meeting developed a set of 15 feminist principles of the internet. These are designed to be an evolving document that informs our work on gender and technology, as well as influences our policy-making discussions when it comes to internet governance.
