Take Back the Tech! 2010 : Explore technology! Defend women's rights!

KUALA LUMPUR 24 November 2010 (APC WNSP for APC)

Women’s rights to expression and information are increasingly under threat. The UN estimates that 95% of aggressive behaviour, harassment, abusive language and degrading images in online spaces are aimed at women. As more and more women go online using computers and mobile phones, many are silenced through acts of violence, sexism and censorship. From November 25 to December 10 Take Back The Tech! calls on women and men to take control of technology to protect the right to freedom of expression and information. Watch the Take Back the Tech! campaign video to find out more on what you can do. Join the moment and get creative!
