New issue paper: Women’s rights, gender and Internet governance

5 November 2015 (Avri Doria for the “End violence: Women’s rights and safety online” project)

This issue paper addresses the degree to which gender and women’s rights feature in Internet governance, in multiple interconnected ways including, but certainly not limited to, access, content and representation. Gender and women’s rights occupy a largely rhetorical role in today’s discussion of Internet governance.

2 November 2015 (Leila Nachawati Rego for APCNews)


How does the politics of sex and sexual rights activism take place online?
