Director of Open Institute and pannel of speakers at the Women forumDirector of Open Institute and pannel of speakers at the Women forumReports indicate that violence against women (VAW) is still very much present in today’s society – one out of three women worldwide suffers from some form of gender-based violence. As part of the global campaign on “Say NO to violence against women”, APC member the Open Institute in Cambodia conducted three forums on “Reclaiming ICT to end violence against women” held from September to December 2008. Through these forums, they were able to uncover key challenges in the use of ICTs to end violence against women, and put forth a series of pertinent recommendations to be implemented in Cambodia as part of the country’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The report, which is now available for download, summarises the findings and recommendations that were uncovered during the Women forums from September to December 2008. These forums also fall within the scope of APC’s MDG3 project: Strengthening women’s strategic use of ICTs to combat violence against women and girls, of which Cambodia is one of the 12 countries involved.
