The collection, processing, and exploitation of data, by both State and non-State actors (including corporations), are not gender-neutral acts. Likewise, the enjoyment of the right to privacy is very much shaped by one’s gender, sexual orientation and gender identity. In the digital age, we see offline misogyny, heteropatriarchy and gendered injustices not only replicated, but also exacerbated and taking on new forms. The gendered dimensions of the right to privacy in the digital age are significant but largely unexplored. This side event at the Human Rights Council's 40th session aims to build upon the work on the right to privacy, and to inform the resolution on the right to privacy that will be adopted at this HRC session.
