Jan Moolman has led the Women's Rights Programme’s (WRP's) work on online gender-based violence since 2009 when she joined APC as coordinator of a 12-country project, which was the first of its kind to explore the intersections of violence against women and technology focusing specifically on the global South. Jan has provided leadership to WRP’s impactful policy advocacy to secure recognition for online gender-based violence through engaging and influencing multiple rights-based policy processes, including with treaty bodies, special procedures and in relation to internet governance.
In another life, between 2002 and 2004, Jan was the editor of Agenda, an African peer-reviewed academic journal of feminism, which was established in 1987 as a volunteer project in South Africa and is currently published by UNISA Press in collaboration with Routledge. Jan has extensive experience in the women’s rights and feminist movements in South Africa and the region and is particularly interested in the intersections of gender, race and class. When not at APC, she spends her time chasing a toddler.
