Using Media and Technology to end Gender Based Violence

Inter Press Service (IPS), South Africa
Using Media and Technology to end Gender Based Violence
08 December 2010

[…]Jan Moolman from APC Women’s Networking Support Programme (APC WNSP) spoke about ‘Protecting Women’s Rights Online’. “Both ICT and VAW affect our capacity to completely enjoy our human rights and fundamental freedoms. Women and girls are increasingly experiencing violence when using the internet and mobile phones. Acts of violence against women in the real world are replicated online, including cyber stalking, cyber bullying, surveillance and other acts that violate women’s safety and privacy. ICTs are changing the ways in which women experience and respond to violence”, said Jan Moolman.[…]

APC says, A stand for WikiLeaks is a stand for freedom of information online

By APC (December 2010, APC )

APC has issued a statement to express our deep concern about recent attempts by governments and businesses to close down the whistleblower website WikiLeaks. We call on all governments and the internet community to explicitly reject any form of online content control that limits freedom of expression and information, particularly information that contributes to making governments more transparent, and that empowers citizens to hold their governments accountable.

Open spectrum for development - collected research and articles

By APC (February 2011, APC )

APC’s open spectrum initiative aims to provide an understanding of spectrum regulation by examining the situation in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The timely research coincides with the rapid growth of wireless and mobile in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and raises fresh questions about the use of spectrum and the policies that govern it. The research looks at how spectrum is assigned, who assigns it, and what policy or regulatory framework they use.

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!

Internet rights are human rights

MONTEVIDEO 22 November 2010 (APC for APC)

Restricting free expression, association and the free flow of information on the internet has become a global trend and its intensity and impact is greatest in countries lacking a culture of democracy or strong human rights regimes. People who speak out against repression risk their own freedom and safety and the sites that carry their online denouncements are often censored or banned. A new APC project “Internet rights are human rights” starting in November 2010 builds on our long-standing work including our Internet Rights Charter aims to secure freedom of expression and association on the internet to those who need it most: human rights defenders.
