The Women's Rights Programme of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC WRP) is looking for a content production coordinator and experienced editor to join APC’s virtual office and help support our exciting work.
In this statement, APC calls on the Open-ended Working Group (OEWG) to recognise that existing and emerging cyber threats impact differently on groups subject to intersecting forms of discrimination, including women and people of diverse sexualities and gender expressions.
The aim of this brief is to support the implementation of the agreed language in the United Nations Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) resolution pertaining to stakeholder engagement.
How are APC members improving their communities’ lives? Point of View's reports, research and campaigns have made meaningful contributions toward building and amplifying the voices of women and other marginalised genders and removing barriers to voice, speech and expression across India.
This report presents the findings of a two-year research project undertaken by the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) to study the entry of digital platforms in domestic and care work in India. The project was supported by APC as part of the Feminist Internet Research Network.
APC welcomes the report of the Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression, in particular its recognition of gendered disinformation online and the recommendation to states and companies to confront it, as well as to give special attention to its consequences in the offline world.
As well as requirements such as commitment to the universal application of human rights, relevant experience, competence, independence and personal integrity, any individual considered for this mandate should also be well positioned to address the gendered dimensions of privacy.
"Gender Approaches to Cybersecurity" explores how gender norms shape specific activities pertaining to cybersecurity design, defence and response. In each of these three pillars, the research identifies distinct dimensions of cyber-related activities that have gendered implications and, thus, need to be considered from a gender perspective.
Design justice advocates for processes of design that do not extract or appropriate the knowledge of users, but build systems and software that are of use to them, rather than to companies and designers themselves.
Throughout the sessions I have been sitting in at this year’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF), one thought has continuously come to mind: Where is the LGBTIAQ+ community in all of this? We cannot ignore LGBTIAQ+ people in our conversations on the internet, especially not in spaces like the IGF.
