Statement on the Ten-year Review of Progress Made in the Implementation of the Outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society
The undersigned organisations from civil society welcome the CSTD Secretariat’s draft report on the Ten-year Review of Progress Made in the Implementation of the Outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society.
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.
Remarks from the Association for Progressive Communications on the occasion of the ITU's 2014 Plenipotentiary Conference
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.
