The 12th edition of RightsCon will be taking place this year from 5 to 8 June in Costa Rica and online. APC and its network will be actively participating, co-organising and speaking at the event.
This year's RightsCon will be held from 5-8 June in Costa Rica and online, where APC will focus on the themes of gender and sexuality, climate and environmental justice and gender-responsive cybersecurity. Here is our resource kit of knowledge, research and recommended readings to help us all prepare to engage with each other at this event.
This joint submission is a response to the Global Digital Compact (GDC) consultation process and its expected outcome to outline shared principles for an open, free and secure digital future for all.
This issue brief explores questions related to online expression for feminist and women’s rights activists, and draws upon the emerging trends and challenges. It also provides an introduction to useful emerging language and advocacy for the UN Commission on the Status of Women and beyond.
Join us at a special 30th anniversary event for World Press Freedom Day where freedom of expression rapporteurs will discuss the agreed conclusions of the Commission on the Status of Women plus recommendations of the 2022 Joint Declaration on Freedom of Expression and Gender Justice.
Given that digital technologies and the laws and norms that govern them have the potential to perpetuate and worsen pre-existing structural inequalities, APC and Derechos Digitales believe that a central element of this future convention should be the integration of a gender perspective.
APC believes that a feminist approach to data and datafication examines the nature of data and constantly resists disembodiment of data. It is centred on the understanding that the consequences of data and datafication are embodied, with individuals and communities facing those consequences.
In response to the violence they face online, women censor themselves, stepping back from conversations online and sometimes exiting online spaces entirely. At times, however, they continue to speak and exist online but alter their speech and behaviour to comply with perceived social norms.
In spite of expanding awareness on online and technology-facilitated gender-based violence, there has only been an increase in the violence online in the last decade. Feminist research points to ways to address this ongoing challenge.
APC and Sursiendo will be hosting a workshop at this year's MozFest on 22 March, where they will invite participants to begin the process of weaving a digital quilt for feminist, just and sustainable tech futures for the Earth.
